ABB to install complete TrueViewÂ? systems for transmission assembly at a global automaker's powertrain plant.

Braintech, Inc. (OTCBB: BRHI), a leading provider of vision guided robotic, (“VGR”) software solutions, announced today that it has received a purchase order from ABB for two eVisionFactory™ (“eVF”) built solutions. eVF, Braintech's software platform, is part of ABB's TrueView™ Vision Guided Robotic System offering.

The order is for two solutions that utilize Braintech's patented SC3D™ guidance technology to pick torque converter parts out of imprecise dunnage and place them into an assembly station for processing.

Commenting, Braintech CEO Owen Jones said, “This order represents a number of 'firsts' including: the first use of Trueview by this ABB customer in a powertrain application and the first TrueView systems being shipped using ABB's new IRC5 controller. As with so many of our other first orders, upon successful installation, we anticipate additional application opportunities and repeat orders for TrueView. These orders represent a continued expansion of our growing user and installed base”.
