ABB expands large robot family with four new models and 22 variants

The new models, namely the IRB 6710, IRB 6720, IRB 6730, and IRB 6740, offer customers enhanced performance and improved energy efficiency

With these new additions, ABB Robotics aims to provide customers in diverse industries with greater choice and flexibility.

The new robot models cater to the specific needs of industries such as automotive, electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing, general manufacturing, foundry, food and beverage, and logistics.

Sustainable Production: Energy Savings of Up to 20%

Sustainable production is a top priority for many automotive manufacturers, and ABB’s new robots address this need by offering energy savings of up to 20%.

The incorporation of ABB’s OmniCore controller and a lighter robot design contribute to the improved energy efficiency of the new models.

Superior Repeatability for High-Quality Production

The new large robot models from ABB boast class-leading repeatability, with a minimum deviation of only 0.03mm. This level of precision enables high-quality production processes, making these robots ideal for complex tasks such as spot welding, laser welding, screwdriving, and riveting.

Meeting the Demands of the Electric Vehicle Industry

As the electric vehicle industry continues to grow, ABB’s new large robots are designed to meet its specific requirements.

The robots provide the flexibility to handle batteries of varying sizes, from individual cells and modules to complete packages. They excel in high-precision car body assembly, spot welding, and installation tasks in restricted areas within the vehicle.

Showcased at Automatica 2023: Demonstrating Seamless Integration

ABB introduced the four new large robot models at the Automatica 2023 event in Munich, Germany. Visitors had the opportunity to witness the robots in action, as they performed spot welding tasks and loaded/unloaded EV battery tray parts.

This demonstration showcased the capabilities and seamless integration of ABB’s robotics solutions.

To conclude, ABB Robotics’ expansion of its large robot family with the IRB 6710, IRB 6720, IRB 6730, and IRB 6740 models offers customers greater choice, improved performance, and enhanced energy efficiency.
