ABB Robotics' Twin Robot Xbar is constructed to accommodate a wide range of crossbar types and lengths
ABB Robotics' Twin Robot Xbar (TRX) is designed to be a parts transfer system with an output rate of up to 16 parts per minute for big panels in tandem press lines. The TRX is built to be retro-fitted to existing press lines. A single robot cabinet is made to control all ten TRX axes, comprised of two four-axis robots plus two crossbar axes, built to simplify programming without adding to the system footprint.
The system is constructed to accommodate a wide range of crossbar types and lengths to assure the right fit for different line configurations. Crossbar changes for new production are made to be fully automated on the press bolster or at the inter-press. The TRX is built to run on StampWare, a proprietary software package from ABB designed to facilitate interaction between operator and press cell.
