The highest performance robot
Performance is often a trade off, optimizing for speed or accuracy. With ABB’s IRB 1600, you don’t have to choose. The robot’s cycle times are shorter, sometimes half that of other robots, allowing you to increase throughput. Meanwhile, you will enjoy the work piece quality that only an ABB robot can offer. Extra everything.
Double your throughput
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.
