The IRB 6700 family is the highest performance robots in the 150-300 kilogram class, now with a 20 percent reduction in total cost of ownership achieved through more robust design, longer service intervals, increased efficiency and simplified maintenance versus the previous generation.
These robots enhances ABB’s portfolio by combining greater uptime, higher payloads and longer reach for use in Spot Welding, Material Handling and Machine Tending applications at the automotive and the general industries. This array of robot variants has payloads from 150 to 300 kg, reaches 2.6 to 3.2 meters, and are avalible as floor mounted and inverted versions.
Robust and reliable
The entire robot structure has been strengthened with higher rigidity, resulting in increased accuracy, shorter cycle time and better protection. It has been built to withstand the harshest working environments and is available with ABB’s ultimate Foundry Plus 2 protection system. The IRB 6700 has also been validated and tested with more robot prototypes than ever before to ensure that the predictions for reliability were accurate in the real world.
In designing the robot, easier serviceability was identified as a critical aspect for improving its total cost of ownership. Therefor service and repair time has been reduced by 15 percent.
Access to motors has also been improved and technical documentation for maintenance has become easier to read and understand through the use of improved graphics and 3D simulations called “Simstructions.”
