“The upgrades and expansion at the Bangalore factory make it one of our most advanced production facilities in the world. The adoption of exciting new Industry 5.0 technologies makes this an ideal home for the production, testing, and supply of ABB smart power’s technologies. The smart power team is the ideal partners for customers pursuing higher standards of safety, reliability, and energy efficiency in their operations,” said Giampiero Frisio, president of the Smart Power Division at ABB Group.

“Through our own digital transformation at this facility, we will be able to demonstrate the benefits of adopting smart solutions directly to our customers. We believe that this will encourage the shift towards digital and sustainable manufacturing in India. Smart factories would be the cornerstone for the Indian manufacturing sector to leapfrog and manufacture quality electrification products and solutions to support the country’s next level growth across sectors sustainably,” said Kiran Dutt, president of the electrification business of ABB India.

The new facility houses numerous robot types with combined autonomous test cells for different product variants. It also has a metrology lab to ensure standardization in measurement, calibration and inspection to match design specifications and protect product quality. Additionally, a test lab in the facility performs endurance tests of products manufactured in the plant.

ABB India recently reported that its revenues in Q2 grew 44% year-on-year while its orders expanded by 64% year-on-year in the period.

“ABB India’s well-balanced portfolio for diverse customers across market segments will continue to act as a catalyst of growth.
