Dedicated arc welding robot
All of the IRB 1600ID's cables and hoses are routed inside the upper arm, making the robot perfectly suitable for Arc Welding. The dress pack carries all the media necessary for arc welding, including power, welding wire, shielding gas and pressurized air.
- Reliable – High production up time
Faulty process cabling is a common cause of unpredicted line stops. With the IRB1600ID, stops can be reduced to a minimum. Because the cables are routed inside the upper arm, their motion is predicted given a certain cycle. When the motion is predicted, so is the lifetime.
- Fast – Short cycle times
Faster then any competing robot in its class.
- Accurate – Consistent part quality
There is always a blind spot when programming a conventional robot. Because of the external routing of the dress pack and its unpredictable motion, programmers have to use their imagination to ensure the dress pack won’t hit anything during operation.
Outstanding position repeatability (+- 0.05 mm) and very good path accuracy.
- Strong – Maximized utilization
Payload is 4 kg and maximum reach 1.5 m.
- Versatile – Increased accessability
Integrated dressing makes the robot’s outer dimensions smaller. This extends the robot system’s real working range, a crucial factor when welding on fixtures with a complex geometry. It also eliminates the risk of damaging the dress pack in case of collision with the fixture.
