The IRB 1600 has up to 50 percent shorter cycle times than competing robots in material handling, machine tending and process applications. It speeds up and slows down faster than other robots, saving time while moving between tasks. This is possible due to ABB’s patented second generation QuickMove motion control, combined with the robot’s strong motors and low friction losses in the spur gears.
No more cutting corners
At high speed, most robots will cut corners. With the IRB 1600, the path will be the same regardless of speed, thanks to the robot’s unique combination of brains and brawn. Intelligent second generation TrueMove motion control means that ”what-youprogram-is-what-you-get”. Add muscle – a heavy and stiff design – low vibrations and low friction – and you have a robot that will deliver consistently high work piece quality, high yield and few rejects.
The IRB 1600 offers outstanding reliability, even in the toughest environments and the most demanding 24/7 duty cycles. The entire manipulator is IP 54 classed and sensitive parts are IP 67 classed as standard.
The optional protection Foundry Plus offers IP 67, special paint, rust protection and is tailor made for tough foundry environments. The rigid and heavy design combined with spur gears, make the robot extremely robust. Smart collision detection software further adds to the robot’s outstanding reliability.
Easy to integrate
Mounting is fully flexible: on a shelf, on the wall, tilted or inverted. By choosing the compact shortarm version with the 1.2 m reach, you can even fit the IRB 1600 inside a machine, while ensuring sufficient payload as the maximum total load is as high as 36 kg. Sustainable and healthy Low friction spur gears, and no unnecessary moves due to QuickMove and TrueMove, reduces power consumption down to 0.58 kW at max speed, and even less at low speeds. The airborne noise level of just <70 dB (A) secures a healthy sound environment.
