generation of ABB FlexPicker
delta robots was introduced at the Pack Expo this month. The new
design will be easier to clean, require less maintenance, and take up less space. The FlexPicker IRB
360 family will start with three models. One of these three was on display at the Expo.
FlexPickers are designed for precise and quick material handling
. The Flex Picker IRB
360 family will have larger payloads up to 4kg. These top-mounted robots will also come with a compact footprint. Stainless steel versions will be available for quick cleaning.
These delta robots will work with ABB's
PickMaster software. This powerful controller handles up to eight robots. It is an excellent choice for combined material handling
systems where more than one type of robot handles a task.
