The Lean Arc Welder.
This high precision robotic arc welder, with integrated process dressing, combines 24/7 production output with 50% lower cost of maintenance to deliver the lowest cost per weld in its class.
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.
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 position. 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.
