ABB Ltd provides power and automation technologies for utility and industrial customers worldwide. The company operates in approximately 100 countries across 4 regions: Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Divisions The company manages its business based on a divisional structure, with five divisions: Discrete Automation and Motion, Low Voltage Products, Process Automation, Power Products, and Power Systems. DISCRETE AUTOMATION AND MOTION This division offers a range of products and services, including drives, motors, generators, power electronics systems, rectifiers, power quality and power protection products, converters, photovoltaic inverters, programmable logic controllers, and robots. Primary applications include energy conversion, data processing, actuation, automation, and standardized manufacturing cells for applications, such as machine tending, welding, cutting, painting, finishing, palletizing and packing, and engineered systems for the automotive industry. The majority of these applications are for industrial applications, with others provided for buildings, transportation, and utilities. This division also provides a range of life-cycle services, from product and system maintenance to system design, including energy appraisals and preventive maintenance services. This division provides low-voltage and medium-voltage drive products and systems for industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Drives provide speed, motion, and torque control for equipment, such as fans, pumps, compressors, conveyors, kilns, centrifuges, mixers, hoists, cranes, extruders, printing machinery, and textile machines. The drives are used in the building automation, marine, power, transportation, and manufacturing industries, among others. This division also produces a range of power electronics products. These include static excitation and synchronizing systems that provide stability for power stations, as well as high power rectifiers that convert alternating current (AC) power to direct current (DC) power for very high-amperage applications, such as furnaces in zinc plants and aluminum and magnesium smelters. This division supplies a range of electrical motors and generators, including high-efficiency motors that conform to environmental and efficiency standards. This division manufactures synchronous motors for the various demanding applications and a range of low- and high-voltage induction motors, for both International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) standards. The Discrete Automation and Motion division offers robots, controllers and software systems and services for the automotive manufacturers and their sub-suppliers, as well as for general manufacturing. Robots are also used in activities or environments which may be hazardous to employee health and safety, such as repetitive lifting, dusty, hot or cold rooms, or painting booths. In the automotive industry, the robot products and systems are used in such areas as press shop, body shop, paint shop, power train assembly, trim and final assembly. General industry segments in which robotics solutions are used range from metal fabrication, foundry, plastics, food and beverage, chemicals and pharmaceuticals to consumer electronics, solar and wood. Typical general industry applications include welding, material handling, painting, picking, packing and palletizing. The company also offers services that complement its products, including design and project management, engineering, installation, training and life-cycle care, energy efficiency appraisals and preventive maintenance. Sales and Marketing: Sales are made both through direct sales forces, as well as through third-party channel partners, such as distributors, wholesalers, installers, machine builders and original equipment manufacturers, system integrators, and panel builders. Customers: The company’s customers include machinery manufacturers; process industries, such as pulp and paper, oil and gas, and metals and mining companies; hybrid and batch manufacturers, such as food and beverage companies;
