ABB India recently inaugurated one of the first smart factories in Bangalore, India for the production of electrical protection and connection solutions. The smart factory, which is part of ABB’s manufacturing 19-acre Nelamangala campus, will house the production line for the entire range of ABB’s protection and connection business, which helps to protect power systems from surges and enables a reliable power supply for various installations.
The smart factory enables continuous monitoring of the production process through visualization of operational data, to increase efficiency and flexibility of the manufacturing process. The smart production line can track and display operational performance parameters across the entire manufacturing chain in real time. The factory also has digital lifecycle management with interconnected automation components, machines as well as data about processes and products. Real-time feeds monitor the entire manufacturing process.
The Bangalore facility will manufacture ABB’s range of air and molded case circuit breakers, electronic and thermal relays, contactors, pilot devices and ABB’s latest range of plug and play low-voltage circuit breaker, Emax 2. The products are key in optimizing resources, reducing energy and lifecycle costs and boosting the productivity of industrial installations across sectors like process industries (cement, textile, chemicals, and metals), marine, data centers and automotive.
