ABB Launches Next-Generation Robotics Control Platform

ABB Robotics has launched OmniCore™, an intelligent automation platform that is faster, more precise and more sustainable, to empower, enhance and futureproof businesses.

The OmniCore platform, the result of more than $170 million of investment in next generation robotics, is a step change to a modular and futureproof control architecture that will enable the full integration of AI, sensor, cloud and edge computing systems to create the most advanced and autonomous robotic applications.

OmniCore’s class-leading motion performance delivers robot path accuracy at a level of less than 0.6mm, with multiple robots running at high speeds of up to 1,600mm per second. This opens new automation opportunities in precision areas such as arc welding, mobile phone display assembly, gluing and laser cutting. Overall, OmniCore enables robots to operate up to 25 percent faster and to consume up to 20 percent less energy compared to the previous ABB controller.

OmniCore is built on a scalable, modular control architecture that offers a wide array of functions to create almost any application imaginable, making it suitable for businesses embracing automation in existing and new segments, such as biotechnology and construction, amongst many others. With over 1,000 hardware and software features, customers can design, operate, maintain, and optimize operations easily. This is enabled by software features including ABB’s Absolute Accuracy, and PickMaster® Twin, as well as hardware options spanning from external axis and vision systems to fieldbuses.

OmniCore replaces ABB Robotics IRC5 controller which will be phased out in June 2026. ABB will continue to support its customers using IRC5 with spare parts and services through the remaining lifetime of the robot.
