What if your press tending robots could transfer parts faster, more efficiently, and use less space to do it? ABB Robotics has an ingeniously simple solution - add a 7th axis.
The 7th axis piece extends horizontally from the end of the ABB robot arm. It has the ability to move a part without changing the part's orientation. Constructed from aluminum, this external axis is flat, weighs 35kg, and is 1640mm long.
7th Axis Advantages:
A Calmer Ride -This robot peripheral reduces the amount of vibration and inertia on the part.
Time Saved - Because the part doesn't have to be re-oriented, press cycle times are diminished.
Space-Efficient - The external 7th axis makes for a more compact footprint because the distances are shortened.
