ABB ROBOTICS introduced four new models in its family of large robots, with 22 variants, for automotive, EV, and other manufacturing sectors. The new models also offer the operators up to 20% energy savings versus the previous standard, and repeatability with a minimum of 0.03 mm deviation, to improve production quality
The new models include the IRB 6710, IRB 6720, IRB 6730 and IRB 6740, suitable for payloads ranging from 150 kg to 310 kg, with a reach from 2.5 m to 3.2 m.
“Sustainable production is a major priority of automotive manufacturers, with 78 percent of companies identifying it as important to their business and 77 percent identifying it as a priority for their customers,” stated Marc Segura, president of ABB’s Robotics Division. “ABB’s four new robots offer 22 variants and energy savings of up to 20 percent, responding to our customer’s needs; offering more choice and greater flexibility for more sustainable production. These new robots will help our customers build resilience across a range of industries including automotive, general manufacturing, foundry, food and beverage and logistics.”
The improved energy efficiency is due to ABB’s OmniCore™ controller, and a lighter robot design, leading to energy savings of up to 20 percent. OmniCore also offers high motion-control accuracy.
Featuring ABB’s TrueMove and QuickMove motion control technology, the robots can achieve class-leading repeatability with a minimum of 0.03 mm deviation. These capabilities make the new series of robots ideal for complex tasks such as spot welding, laser welding, screwdriving and riveting, allowing automotive manufacturers to achieve high quality assembly.
