This positioner features a twin station solution where the robot works on one side and the operator loads and unloads on the other side. The workpiece is rotating around one axis during operation and all axes are reoriented at station changes. A screen is fitted between the two stations, which protects the operator from the arc. The positioner IRBP R, which comes in three versions, is designed to handle workpieces including fixture of a weight up to 1000 kg.
The modular design, few and heavy-duty moving parts as well as minimal maintenance demands make the positioner service friendly. Dynamically adaptive software plus high-speed drives result in fast changeovers and high productivity.
