Industrial robot series for material handling

ABB Robotics' IRB 6700 robot family is designed for spot welding, material handling and machine tending and features LeanID for easier programming. Courtesy: ABB RoboticsABB Robotics' IRB 6700 robot family is available in payloads from 150 to 300 kg, and reaches from 2.6 to 3.2 m, and is designed for spot welding, material handling and machine tending. In addition to enhanced speed, payload and accuracy, the power consumption has been lowered by 15%, total cost of ownership has been reduced by up to 20%, and maintenance has been optimized, doubling the time between service intervals.

The IRB 6700 robot family is available with LeanID, a new Integrated Dressing (ID) designed for easier programming and a smaller footprint. It has also been built to withstand the harshest working environments.

Every robot in the 6700 family has been designed to accommodate Lean ID—designed to achieve a balance between cost and durability by integrating the most exposed parts of the dress pack into the robot. Equipping an IRB 6700 with Lean ID makes it easier to program and simulate with predictable cable movements, creates a more compact footprint, and lengthens service intervals.
