Courtesy: ABB RoboticsABB Robotics has introduced the IRB 120T, a faster version of its multipurpose 6-axis robot, first introduced in the Fall of 2009. The IRB 120T provides significant increases in the maximum speeds of axes 4, 5 and 6, delivering increased cycle speeds from the standard IRB 120 model. The IRB 120T is designed for assembly and pick and place applications requiring extensive reorientation of the product, commonly found in the food and beverage, consumer packaging, consumer electronics, electrical and Tier 1 automotive industries. 

The new model has all the functionality of the standard IRB 120, with unmatched path repeatability of 0.01 mm, superior motion control and outstanding path accuracy; providing agility, precision and speed to applications where a smaller footprint and profile are required.  Weighing just 25 kg (55 lb), the IRB 120 has a standard payload of 3 kg (6.6 lb), a vertical wrist payload of 4 kg (8.8 lb), a reach of 580 mm, a best-in-class stroke of 411 mm and the ability to reach 112 mm below its base.  

All IRB 120 models are available with the compact version of the IRC5 controller, making it easy to program and control for a variety of tasks.
