ABB's IRB 1520ID arc welding robot is easy to install in a range of production configurations
ABB Robotics' IRB 1520ID arc welding robot features internal Axis-1 routing of the welding cabling, a compact swing base, and 30% less weight than the IRB 1600ID. The upper arm integrated dressing (ID) design is built to simplify programming and is designed to provide optimum protection for all media, including welding power and wire, shielding gas and pressurized air. The compact base and lower weight, combined with a 1.5-meter reach and 4kg payload, are engineered to make the robot easy to install in a range of production configurations, in either floor or invert mount positions. The power source interface is also fully integrated, giving users full control over voltage, current, speed, gas flow, and other welding parameters from the same interface as the robot.
