Up to 10% shorter cycle times
IRB 1660ID’s new compact wrist with very powerful motors enables fast and reliable movements that do not impede swinging cables and allow maximum acceleration and speed at all times. This combined with ABB’s QuickMoveTM technology allows the IRB 1660ID to shorten cycle times up to 10% compared to competition.
Outstanding weld quality
The demand for superior and quality in arc welding applications has increased, requiring improved wire feeding control near the arc to guarantee high volume production. The IRB 1660ID has a stronger more rigid upper arm able to lift up to 6 kg to accommodate heavier torches. This, combined with ABB‘s TrueMoveTM technology and the new motion process “Accuracy mode” provides 0.05 mm path repeatability for excellent welding results.
Safe robot movements enable high density cells
The IRB 1660ID with the aid of RobotStudio®, ABB’s premier offline robot software programming tool, enables robot programmers to envision high density cells with several robots welding close to each other with a minimum of work piece heat distortions.
RobotStudio simulations help to secure safe robot movements with max speed and accelerations at all times to provide predictable and shortest possible and cycle times. Such high density cells can maximize your output, provide top quality parts and operate with unmatched reliability.
