New ABB IRB 120 robot suitable for material handling and assembly applications

The ABB IRB 120 robot is suitable for material handling and assembly applications in the electronic, food and beverage, machinery, solar, pharmaceutical, medical and research sectors.

The robot has a reduced weight of 25kg and its compact design enables it to be mounted virtually anywhere, whether it is inside a cell, on top of a machine or close to other robots on a production line.

The six-axis robot handles a payload of up to 3kg (4kg with its wrist down) and has a reach of 580mm, so it is able to carry out a series of operations using flexible rather than hard automated solutions.

It can be mounted at any angle without any restriction.

The smooth surfaces are easy to clean and the cables for air and customer signals are internally routed, all the way from the foot to the wrist.

In addition to a horizontal reach of 580mm, the robot has best-in-class stroke and the ability to reach 112mm below its base.

The IRB 120 has a very compact turning radius, which is enabled by the robots symmetric architecture, without offset on axis 2.

This ensures the robot can be mounted close to other equipment and the slim wrist enables the arm to reach closer to its application.

Designed with a light, aluminum structure, the powerful compact motors ensure the robot is enabled with a fast acceleration, and can deliver accuracy and agility in any application.

ABB’s new IRC5 Compact controller takes the capabilities of the IRC5 controller and presents them in a compact format.

The new Compact controller brings accuracy and motion control to applications, which previously had been exclusive to large installations.

The controller also enables easy commissioning through one phase power input, external connectors for all signals and a built-in expandable 16in, 16 out, I/O system.

RobotStudio for offline programming enables manufacturers to simulate a production cell to find the optimal position for the robot, and provide offline programming to prevent costly downtime and delays to production.
