Tata Motor’s wholly owned subsidiary TAL Manufacturing on Sunday announced that BRABO — the first Made-in-India robot — has received “CE” certification for commercial sale in the European market.
The BRABO — showcased at the ‘Make in India Week’ last year — is a cost-effective solution meant to automate micro, small and medium enterprises.
The robot now complies with essential requirements relevant to European health, safety and environmental legislation, permitting its export to customers in Europe.
“With the CE certification we have raised the benchmark for the BRABO to deliver solutions to global businesses, steering towards automation, including that of labour-intensive industries, freeing up precious manpower time in other areas of business, to transform businesses into technologically advanced ecosystems,” Amit Bhingurde, COO, TAL Manufacturing & Solutions Limited, said in a statement.
BRABO has been indigenously designed to create efficiencies right from raw material handling until packaging of finished product and can be programmed to operate 24/7 in all situations.
The robot can be used for varied applications for tasks like pick and placement of materials, assembly of parts, machine and press tending, as a sealing application, camera and vision based jobs etc.
“The BRABO is a cost-effective solution and we believe, over time it will become the preferred option for businesses who hope to bring in automation. We are eager to begin our commercial launch in Europe,” Bhingurde said.
