ABB Plugins

Plugins to Integrate Accessories and End-Effectors with ABB Cobots

We develop ABB plugins (Addins) for manufacturers of cobot accessories and end-effectors, such as grippers, scanners, and screwdrivers. These Addins are software applications that can be installed on any ABB cobot, extending their capabilities. Addins enable end-customers to seamlessly integrate and operate various robot accessories with ABB cobots, facilitating complex automation processes with ease. Additionally, manufacturers of cobot accessories gain access to the robust ABB sales channel through these Addins.
