IRB 1520ID - The Lean Arc Welder

Dedicated arc welding robot

With IRB 1520ID (Integrated Dressing), the hose package is totally integrated into the upper arm and through the base of the robot. This means all media necessary for arc welding, including power, welding wire, shielding gas, and pressurized air is routed for maximized performance and energy efficiency. The IRB 1520ID delivers stable welding, excellent path accuracy, short cycle times, and extended life expectancy of the hose package. Thanks to the integrated dressing, welding around cylindrical objects can be carried out without any stops, and narrow spaces are more easily accessed.

Flexible installation

With a payload capacity of 4 kilograms and a reach of 1.5 meters, the highly compact IRB 1520ID can be mounted in both floor and inverted positions. This positioning flexibility offers short cycle times and a wide range of production possibilities.

Superior accuracy and speed

ABB robots are renowned for their superior motion control. With the second generation TrueMove™ technology, IRB 1520ID has an outstanding path accuracy. With the second generation QuickMove™ technology, the robot is able to utilize maximum acceleration between welds to increase output with minimum energy consumption.

Easy to use, Easy to program

Both the robot and arc welding processes are easily programmed and maintained with the ABB FlexPendant. It has an intuitive graphical interface which lets the operators control the robot and select process equipment in their own language. It is equipped with a touchscreen and the unique ABB joystick for quick and easy positioning of the robot. If you appreciate the benefits of simulating and programming offline, ABB offers the most popular, reliable and cost-efficient software packages with RobotStudio™ and RobotStudio Arc Welding PowerPac. The robot will produce predictable cycle times and welding quality after only a few hours.
