To support the automation of the Renault Group’s production network in several key markets, ABB has delivered 160 units of its advanced, robotic industrial technology portfolio to the French OEM over the last two years.
The robotic automation solutions from ABB will be used to enhance capacity at Renault’s advanced e-motor assembly lines in Cléon and Douai, France. At the Douai facility, ABB technology will help the production of Renault’s next-generation EVs with new state-of-the-art body-in-white facilities.
“ABB is proud to have worked with Renault Group for more than two decades and we’re delighted to support them again as they accelerate the electrification of their product line-up,” said Marc Segura, president of ABB Robotics division. “Renault Group has established itself as a pioneer in the electric vehicle market with successes such as the Renault Zoe. With our expertise in flexible manufacturing, we look forward to ensuring these successes continue as we all move towards a sustainable transport future.”
In addition to the robotic solutions, ABB is also providing the French manufacturer with its SafeMove software to deliver safety-rated supervision of robot motion, enabling leaner automation cells and closer collaboration.
