ABB IRB 1600 robot

Monday, 03 June, 2013 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd

ABB has expanded the capabilities of its IRB 1600 robot, which is designed for a range of industrial applications such as machine tending, material handling, arc welding and cutting applications.

The IRB 1600’s top payload has been extended from 8 to 10 kg, which expands the range of applications the robot can serve. The improved payload is available for both the 1.2 and 1.45 m robot variant.

Second-generation QuickMove motion control and the low friction spur gears help cut cycle times by up to 50% compared to other robots, ABB claims. ABB’s TrueMove technology and a stiff design enable good path accuracy even at high speeds.

According to the company, the upgrade improves on the robot’s other existing advantages such as solid protection for use in harsh environments (IP67 compliance of the entire robot as part of the Foundry Plus 2 option) and total mounting flexibility. The 1.2 m reach variant reportedly makes the robot more dexterous in confined spaces for improved reach and flexibility.
