Description:The Twin Robot Xbar (TRX) from ABB is the fastest robot‐based solution in the market, for loading and unloading
of presses, without the need for press modification.

ABB has been developing robot‐based press automation solutions for nearly two decades. Its latest innovation,
the TRX, is a fast and flexible parts transfer system with an output rate of up to 16 parts per minute for big
panels in tandem press lines.

The TRX runs on StampWare, a proprietary software package from ABB designed to facilitate interaction
between operator and press cell.

All ABB Robotics' products are fully supported by the ABB Robotics’ global sales and service organization in 53
countries and over 100 locations.
