Linear part transfer
By integrating a dual action unit into the IRB 6660,
ABB creates the IRB 6660FX, a 7-axis robot for the
transfer of medium size parts rapidly along a linear
path. As a result, vibrations created when parts are
rotated 180° by the conventional 6-axis robot are
In the case of new press lines, inter-press distance
can be reduced as parts are transferred without
having to be rotated.
Dynamic model control
The IRB 6660FX is also equipped with integrated
dynamic model control to ensure the that all seven
axes are coordinated and operating at optimum
speed and lifetime.
User-friendly programming interface
The IRB 6660FX is programmed the same way as
its 6-axis counterpart is. Additionally, it can be
programmed using ABB’s StampWare.
Currently running in more than 1,000 units worldwide, StampWare is a family of controller software designed to make you more productive by minimizing the learning time and setup time of new production. The modularized program structure, the program wizard and the graphical production window decrease the time for training that the operator and robot programmer need. As a result, production is more efficient during installation, production set-up and optimizing of the robot cycle.
Optimized performance with carbon fiber tooling
The IRB 6660 FX’s carbon fiber tooling increases
output thanks to its specially designed shape which
has been optimized for tool height. As a result it can
be placed into the die at lower press openings.
