The ABB IRB 140

Apr 28, 2014

If you are looking for a reliable and versatile robot for a wide range of applications, look no further than the ABB IRB 140. This is a 6-axis robot that can tackle up to 6 kg in payload. The IRB 140 can handle applications such as arc welding, assembly, cleaning, spraying, machine tending, material handling, packing, and deburring.


The ABB IRB 140 is a reli­able and ver­sa­tile robot that can per­form appli­ca­tions from almost any cat­e­go­ry, all while being a com­pact, fast robot. The IRB 140 is a 6‑axis indus­tri­al robot that han­dles a pay­load of 6kg, a reach of 810mm (to axis 5), and out­stand­ing posi­tion repeata­bil­i­ty of ± 0.03mm. This robot is a great reflec­tion of all of the hand­work and ded­i­ca­tion that ABB has put into the indus­tri­al robot­ic busi­ness for the past forty years. They have tru­ly devel­oped their robot­ic ver­sa­til­i­ty, which is why their IRB 140 robot is so well round­ed and ver­sa­tile. It can expert­ly han­dle arc weld­ing, assem­bly, clean­ing, spray­ing, machine tend­ing, mate­r­i­al han­dling, pack­ing, and debur­ring.

This pow­er­ful robot is not only ver­sa­tile with its appli­ca­tions, it is also ver­sa­tile in the way it can be mount­ed. The IRB 140 can be mount­ed on the floor, invert­ed or mount­ed in any angle on the wall. 

Anoth­er lev­el of ver­sa­til­i­ty is added to the ABB IRB 140 as it has mul­ti­ple ver­sions avail­able to accom­mo­date a wide range of appli­ca­tions and needs. A cus­tomer can pur­chase the fol­low­ing vari­ants for the ABB IRB 140:

The ver­sa­til­i­ty trend does­n’t stop there, the ABB IRB 140 has a myr­i­ad of con­troller options, includ­ing the IRC5, IRC5P, S4C, and S4Cplus.

Along with the ver­sa­til­i­ty that the ABB IRB 140 brings to the table, this pow­er­ful, com­pact robot is also able to improve the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of any pro­duc­tion line by speed­ing up the appli­ca­tion cycle time. By reduc­ing the amount of time it takes to per­form each cycle, com­pa­nies are able to reduce the over­all pro­duc­tion time, and they are able to get prod­ucts out to their con­sumers at a faster rate, which increas­es their rev­enue. In addi­tion, there is a full inte­gra­tion of all the cables, paired with the col­li­sion detec­tion with full path retrac­tion to help ensure the cre­ation of a safe and reli­able system. 

If you are seek­ing even faster speeds with the same reli­a­bil­i­ty, then you may want to con­sid­er the ABB IRB 140T. It offers all of the above and more! It works 10% faster and has con­sid­er­ably reduced cycle-times. The IRB 140T works at top high access speeds and accel­er­a­tions and is paired with unique ABB motion con­trol soft­ware, Quick­Move. It will be paired with the IRC5 con­troller. Addi­tion­al vari­ants for the ABB IRB 140T are as follows:

  • ABB IRB 140TF (Foundry Plus 2 Protection)
  • ABB IRB 140TCR (Clean Room)
  • ABB IRB 140TW (SteamWash Protection)
