wow... this is pretty stupid.
How are poorly designed EOATs and bad PLC logic a reflection of ABB robots?
I work with IRB 6400s, and have had plenty of issues, but it is always peripheral equipment/circuitry. The only part that has been (mostly) solid is the robot itself..
I have had to replace an upper arm cable and some cabinet components, but it was due to environmental conditions of the work space, not the robot design.
I almost feel like this article is saying "News Flash! Maintenance technicians are having to fix things!" smh
