ABB robots working with plastics
ABB has developed a range of solutions to meet the specific needs of the plastics production industry. These solutions include AC and DC drives, controls, and safety engineering. This ensures that ABB’s customers can meet their total drives and controls needs from a single source.
ABB offers customized packages for manufacturers of plastics production machinery: from control systems to motor shaft, from speed and torque to motion control, from planning to commissioning and servicing. These packages offer energy efficiency and connectivity and are extremely simple to use.
ABB asserts that easy-to-use 6-axis robots are more accessible than ever before to plastics molders. They are the perfect complement to traditional 3-axis linear gantry automation due to their built-in flexibility.
RobotWare Plastics-Mould is ABB’s software product for easy programming and operation of ABB robots used for plastic injection moulding applications. RobotWare Plastics-Mould minimizes the learning time, setup time, and error recovery time, as well as improves the error diagnostic accuracy. This software is used in conjuction with the IRB 140, IRB 1410, IRB 1600, IRB 2400, IRB 4400, IRB 6600, and their variants.
