ABB Robotics' IRB 6700 is designed for spot welding, material handling and machine tending
ABB Robotics' IRB 6700 is designed to be available in payloads from 150 to 300 kg, and is made to reach from 2.6 to 3.2 meters, and is designed for spot welding, material handling and machine tending. In addition to enhanced speed, payload and accuracy, the power consumption has been constructed to be lowered by 15%, total cost of ownership has been made to be reduced by up to 20%, and maintenance has been built to be optimized.
The new model is made to be available with LeanID, a new Integrated Dressing (ID) designed for easier programming and a smaller footprint. It has also been built to withstand the harshest working environments and is available with ABB’s ultimate Foundry Plus 2 protection system. Every robot in the 6700 family has been designed to accommodate Lean ID — designed to achieve a balance between cost and durability by integrating the most exposed parts of the dress pack into the robot. Lean ID is designed to make IRB 6700 easier to program and simulate with predictable cable movements, create a more compact footprint, and lengthen service intervals due to lessened wear and tear.
Service routines for the machine have been built to be shortened and intervals between them have been designed to be increased. Access to motors has also been improved and technical documentation for maintenance has constructed to be easier to read and understand through the use of improved graphics and 3D simulations called “Simstructions.”
