Six-axis robot

Monday, 11 December, 2006 | Supplied by:

ABB has released a backwards bending, six-axis robot.

With a reach of 3.9 m, the IRB 6650S is capable of full vertical and horizontal stroke motion - as well as providing increased reach forward and down. The shelf-mounted robot provides space to handle large parts.

The robot is an alternative to a linear, three-axis device, conventionally used in injection moulding.

The unit is suitable for large injection moulding machines requiring over 1000 tonnes of clamping force.

The flexibility of the six-axis means no idle time between shoots, facilitating post-process applications like flaming, sprue cutting, tape dispensing and assembly operations.

The arm and wrist design of the robot makes easy entry into the injection-moulding machine for part extraction, while the combined ability to reach 2624 mm below its base adds to the robot's flexibility.

This makes it possible to mount the unit over the injection-moulding machine to save space.

It can also work between two injection-moulding machines from its shelf-mounted position.
