Courtesy: ABBABB's IRB 8700 is a multipurpose industrial robot designed for material handling applications in the automotive, transportation and other heavy industries. The robot has a reach of 3.5 m and is capable of handling a payload of up to 800 kg and the robot has only one motor and one gear per robot axis. In addition, there are no gas springs; only a counterweight and mechanical springs for counter balancing. The IRB 8700 is available in two configurations: One with a reach of 4.2 m and a payload of 550 kg (620 kg with the wrist down; 475 kg with LeanID), and the other with a reach of 3.5 meters and a payload of 800 kg (1000 kg with the wrist down; 630 kg with LeanID). LeanID, which is featured with both robots, is an integrated dressing (ID) designed for easier programming, reduced wear and a smaller footprint. Both configurations also have a moment of inertia at 725 kgm2.
