ABB Robotics' IRB 1660ID is a robot designed for arc welding and machine tending applications. It also features Integrated DressPack, which is designed to make the robot easier to program as well as simulate predictable cable movements. The decreased cable wear and damage that also results reduce maintenance costs by 50%, and the compact footprint allows for more efficient robot cell layouts, saving valuable space on the factory floor. The IRB 1660ID also features a rigid upper arm with a reach of 1.55 m and a payload of 6 kg. It is able to accommodate heavier weld torches and provides wire feeding control near the arc for high volume production. The Integrated DressPack allows the robot to move at maximum acceleration and speed, which enables reliable movements ideal for machine tending applications.
