A compact, flexible, fast and functional small industrial robot
Have you ever wanted to make your machines 15% smaller and 10% faster? ABB’s IRB 1200 allows you to do exactly that. Specifically, it addresses the needs of the Material Handling and Machine Tending industries for flexibility, ease-of-use, compactness and short cycle times while still maintaining large working envelopes.
As a family of robots, the IRB 1200 comes in two variants which can handle a wide range of applications. Both IRB 1200 variants can be mounted at any angle and come with IP 40 protection as standard. Both variants are available with Food Grade Lubrication, SafeMove2, Foundry Plus 2 and Clean Room option. The 700 mm reach variant can carry a payload of up to 7 kg, while the longer reach 900 mm variant can carry up to 5 kg of payload.
The IRB 1200 SafeMove2 becomes the smallest ABB robot to feature the advanced safety-certified monitoring and control software solution which allows robots and operators to work more closely together by restricting robot motion to precisely what is needed for a specific application.
The IRB 1200 has no offset in axis two, which results in a longer stroke than other small robots and it, meaning it can be placed very close to the work piece and still be functional. This allows for a much more compact installation when the robot is mounted on the ceiling inside a small cell, such as in electronics machining or polishing applications. The robots’ large useable working area contained in a small package leads to shorter cycles and more compact machines.
Food Grade Lubrication and Clean Room option
This Food Grade Lubrication (NSF H1) option includes Clean Room ISO class 3 and IP67 protection rating which ensure uncompromising safety and hygiene for food and beverage applications. The Clean Room ISO class 3 design eliminates the potential for contamination of the food handling area. This option provides smooth surfaces and makes it easy to keep clean and maintain in environments such as CNC machine tending and material handling in the food industry. This results in features that allow for 15% smaller cells with 10% shorter cycle times.
Foundry Plus 2
The IRB 1200 is also available with Foundry Plus 2, ABB’s optional protection system which allows it to withstand harsh environments for example heavy duty metal casting and automotive applications.
