ABB brings the fifth generation of rail systems to applications such as automotive paint shops with the ABB IRB 5500-25 Elevated Rail. This system is best suited for interior and exterior automotive painting but flexible enough to work with a variety of other painting applications.
The ABB IRB 5500-25 is able to reduce cycle times by 10% on Stop and Go automotive paint lines while maintaining incredible accuracy and deflection prevention. It can also increase the flexibility on your production line with it's two pillar design that can accommodate most car body length configurations and up to four robots on one rail. Furthermore, this system has numerous mounting positions and can be easily re-positioned, enabling the most direct and optimal placement.
Furthermore, the IRB 5500-25 removes the need for additional engineering and other costs associated with installing an IRB 5500-25 on a third party rail. The ABB IRB 5500/25 features are extended with the fully integrated process and motion-control and the special integration into the paint booth. The rail elements are designed without a need for a beam support under the rail, instead they are a self-carrying structure.
The benefits with the IRB 5500-25 are seemingly endless as the ingenious integrated modelling for all axes lowers energy consumption, increases accuracy, and provides a fully synchronized and balanced paint robot motion. If your production line is moving towards offline programming, the Elevated Rail for the ABB IRB 5500/25 fully supports it with 100% accurate cycle checks and path accuracy for all components, including the rail itself.
