ABB’s two new households of enormous robots. | Supply: ABB

ABB is including two robotic households to its portfolio of enormous robots for advanced manufacturing purposes. Delivering enhanced pace, accuracy, flexibility and a extra sturdy design together with built-in course of cabling, ABB’s IRB 5710 and 5720 robots ship elevated productiveness and enhanced efficiency with larger uptime for purposes together with electrical car (EV) manufacture, foundry, forging, rubber, plastics and steel fabrication.

Out there in eight variants, the IRB 5710 and IRB 5720 current a selection of choices for payloads from 70 kg to 180 kg and reaches from 2.3 m to three m. Collectively, the robotic households are appropriate for a variety of manufacturing duties together with materials dealing with and machine tending and meeting, in addition to particular operations in EV manufacturing equivalent to battery module selecting and putting, excessive precision meeting and components dealing with. The advantages provided by the robots additionally make them ultimate to be used in plastic molding, steel casting, cleansing and spraying purposes. 

“These new robots speed up ABB’s persevering with growth into the quickly rising EV market, assembly buyer demand for sturdy items with the pace, path accuracy and dexterity to deal with advanced EV battery meeting duties” Joerg Reger, managing director of ABB Robotics’ automotive enterprise line, stated. 

“The swap from inner combustion engine (ICE) automobiles to EVs particularly is driving elevated demand for quick, adaptable manufacturing traces. EV designs can typically be extremely advanced, and parts equivalent to batteries and semiconductor modules may be very heavy or extraordinarily fragile. These calls for name for options that may supply most precision and repeatability to keep away from errors in manufacturing,” Reger stated.

Each robotic households are powered by ABB’s OmniCore controller V250XT, the newest addition to the OmniCore controller household. That includes ABB’s TrueMove and QuickMove movement management expertise, the OmniCore V250XT controller permits the IRB 5710 and IRB 5720 robots to supply class-leading pace, bettering manufacturing capability with decrease manufacturing occasions. With their place repeatability (0.04-0.05mm), path repeatability (0.1-0.14mm), and path accuracy (1-1.2 mm), the IRB 5710 and IRB 5720 are extra correct than different robots of their lessons.

Additional safety in opposition to injury and cable put on and tear is offered by ABB’s LeanID Built-in DressPack, which permits course of cables to be routed contained in the robotic’s higher arm and alongside the wrist reasonably than externally. This eliminates swinging cables, defending in opposition to warmth and collisions, a typical reason for robotic upkeep points, probably lowering downtime and upkeep value and increasing the robots’ service life by a number of years. LeanID additionally makes it simpler to program and simulate with predictable cable actions in ABB’s RobotStudio offline programming software program.

Each robotic ranges have a number of mounting choices, together with flooring, angled, inverted and semi-shelf for max manufacturing design flexibility.
