Sharp Generation Range Industrial Robot

The IRB 2600 from ABB is the second model in the sharp generation range with enhanced and new capabilities. It is a compact robot with a high payload capacity. The design has been optimized for targeted applications like arc welding, material handling and machine tending. The IRB 2600 is available in three variants, with options for floor, wall, shelf, tilted or inverted mounting configurations.

Featuring enhanced accuracy, the IRB 2600 is designed to help users increase output with higher process speeds and lower scrap rates, resulting in improved productivity. This is particularly useful in process applications, such as arc welding. The high accuracy is achieved by use of the patented TrueMove motion control software.

Due to the compact and optimized design resulting in a low weight, the IRB 2600 can cut the cycle times by up to 25%. "The patented QuickMove motion control software ensures that the maximum acceleration achievable is highest in its class, together with high maximum speeds," said a company spokesperson. The benefit is increased production capacity and high productivity.

The combination of large working range and flexible mounting makes it possible to reach machines to be served without interfering with auxiliary equipment. By optimizing the robot placement, users benefit from higher productivity. Flexible mounting is also very useful when simulating the best position for an application.

The IRB 2600 has the same small footprint as IRB 4600. With the IRB 2600 users can create production cell with reduced floor space by placing the robot closer to the served machines. The foot size makes it easier for the lower arm to reach straight downwards.

The IRB 2600 has IP67 as standard and FoundryPlus 2 as option.
