ABB Robotics selects Ewon to deliver remote service on a global scale.

ABB’s Remote Service solution allows increased production uptime, reduced mean time between failure of robots and delivery of new services to customers.

ABB’s Remote Service solution allows increased production uptime, reduced mean time between failure of robots and delivery of new services to customers. With Remote Service, the robot itself automatically alerts the on-call service engineer, who can immediately access detailed robot data and quickly identify the root cause of the fault. From that moment, ABB can offer support without being physically at a customer’s side and drastically reduce the number of on-site travels.”

 

To achieve this, ABB Robotics selects Ewon, the leading manufacturer of industrial M2M routers. “We were looking for off-the shelves solution to reach remotely ABB robots all around the world. We select Ewon for their profound experience and knowledge in Industrial Internet M2M Routers and wide products portfolio. Ewon puts us in an excellent position to boost our success and gives ABB a powerful competitive edge.”, said Dominique Blanc, Product Manager Remote Service, ABB Robots.

 


Benefits

- Provides predictive maintenance remote services

- Collects health data over 15000 robot worldwide

- Reduce MTBF and provide immediate support


 

The role of Ewon centers around the concept of logging a robot’s key performance data and sending this remotely to an ABB service center via GPRS technology. The information can then be viewed, analysed and reported to customers. By monitoring robot condition, proactive actions can be decided to avoid potential failures that might happen in future. “Ewon offers a powerful JAVA platform that allowed us to develop our services. All communication aspects are managed by the Ewon industrial router and it allows us to concentrate on our core business: the robot and advanced diagnostic methods”, said Mr. Blanc.

Keeping up with the evolution of communication technology

Ewon is currently operational in 30 countries for ABB Robotic. Ewon ensures perfect compatibility with GPRS networks worldwide. When GPRS network is not available, ABB Robotics connects the robots to the ABB service center using Ewon brand new Internet service Talk2M. Talk2M allows secured communication between robots and the service centre over internet.

Fruitful Join collaboration

The successful deployment comes from a very tight collaboration between Ewon and ABB team either in R&D, Quality and supply chain. ABB and Ewon have settled a global frame agreement to reinforce the strategic collaboration between the two companies.  
“ABB offer us the unique experience to deploy our product over 35 countries in a single application, demonstrating our technology and improving our competence in large scale M2M project” said Serge Bassem, Chief Executive Officer of Ewon

Conclusion

Ewon allows ABB Remote Service to improve availability, fewer service visits, lower maintenance costs and maximized total cost of ownership. This unique service sets ABB apart from its competitors to improve customer satisfaction and drastically reduce environment impact with less travels.

  • excavating machine simulator

    USB-to-CAN compact – enabling data exchange within excavating machine simulator

    At Halmstad University in Sweden, work has been proceeding to develop a state-of-the-art simulator for an excavating machine. The prototype uses Virtual Reality to simulate the environment in an excavator. The VR goggles display what the operator would see in an actual excavator and the driver's seat also moves according to what the operator does – making the experience very real.
