Robotics

ABB is the leading supplier of industrial robots, robot software, peripheral equipment, modular manufacturing cells and service for welding and metal fabrication applications. ABB's new IRB 1600ID is the industry's leading robot designed specifically for arc welding. All dress pack cables and hoses are routed inside the upper arm, providing optimum protection for all media. The unique integrated dressing design extends the robot system's real working range, a crucial factor when welding on fixtures with a complex geometry. It also reduces the swing of the dress pack and improves its predictable motion, prolonging the lifetime of all cables and housings, reducing downtime and simplifying programming. The IRB 1600ID is the strongest and quickest robot on the market. ABB has also recently unveiled the new FlexArc® 2, a compact, high performance welding cell priced beginning under $50,000. It features a larger work envelope, easier part loading, longer reach and higher payload than competitive systems. Also new is the IRB 52, a smaller platform robot designed specifically for painting and finishing smaller, simpler parts common to general industrial applications. The IRB 52 is half the weight of the next smallest ABB painting robot, but there is no sacrifice in functionality or performance.

Vision-guided robots consolidate their place in the press shop
Advancements in robotic technology are extending their functionality and improving their performance. Often a robot is expected to do more than move from programmed position A to position B; it must operate “smarter” and act upon other inputs, such as vision systems or force feedback. The applications for integration of vision systems and robots are almost endless but the most common application is vision guidance for the robot
