ABB expands robot family with ceiling-mounted design aimed at fast and accurate small parts assembly.
ABB has expanded its SCARA robot family with the launch of a compact invert-mounted model for small parts assembly applications.
By mounting the IRB 910INV on the ceiling, manufacturers can increase the space efficiency and flexibility of each cell and handle more complex tasks even in cramped locations. The inverted mounting also allows the IRB 910INV to collaborate with other robots and machines simultaneously in the same footprint, further boosting productivity.
Utilising ABB’s superior motion control technology, the IRB 910INV offers class-leading repeatable accuracy for applications including picking and placing, assembly and testing, electronics small parts assembly tasks such as screw driving, inserting or mounting components, and automated inspections for quality control. The IRB 910INV will also be certified for cleanroom applications in the future.
