ABB's IRB 120T multipurpose six-axis robot is built to be smaller and faster
ABB Robotics' IRB 120T multipurpose six-axis robot is designed to provide increases in the maximum speeds of axes 4, 5 and 6. Comparing a 1kg picking cycle of 25 x 300 x 25, the IRB 120T is built to complete a cycle in 0.52 seconds. With the addition of a 180° axis 6 reorientation to the movement, the speed improvement grows to 25%, 0.69 seconds per cycle compared to 0.92 seconds.
The model is engineered to have all the functionality of the standard IRB 120, with path repeatability of 0.01mm, superior motion control and improved path accuracy. Weighing 25kg (55 lbs), the IRB 120 has a standard payload of 3kg (6.6 lbs), a vertical wrist payload of 4kg (8.8 lbs), a reach of 580mm, a stroke of 411mm and the ability to reach 112mm below its base.
