The ABB IRB 7600 is a Power House
The ABB IRB 7600 is a work horse and ready to take on any heavy duty job between 150 - 500 kg (up to 630 kg with “wrist down”), depending on the model. It excels at handling tough tasks as it has high available torque and inertia capability, a robust and rigid design, and powerful acceleration. This powerful acceleration results in shorter cycle times due to its motion control, unique to ABB.
The IRB 7600's horizontal reach ranges from 2550mm to a full 3500mm (depending on the version) and can bend fully backwards helping to greatly extend the work envelope and fit perfectly into dense production lines. In addition, the upper arm extenders and different wrist modules have the best inertia and torque rates available in its class. This helps make the 7600 versatile in its integration to nearly any production process.
This robot is rated best in class regarding path accuracy and position repeatability at +/- 0.08 to 0.09 mm. All of these features help the ABB IRB 7600 to expertly handle a variety of tasks such as heavy fixtures, turning car bodies, lifting engines, handling heavy parts in foundries or forges, loading and unloading of machine cells, and alternatively handling large and heavy pallet layers.
This robot is so perfect that ABB designed a few different models to make it available to all payload and reach needs. These handling capacities range from 150 kg to 630 kg. The IRB 7600/500 has a 2300 mm reach and a 500 kg payload; The IRB 7600/400 has a 2550 mm reach and a 400 kg payload; The IRB 7600/340 has a 2800 mm reach and a 340 kg payload; The IRB 7600/325 has a 3100 mm reach and a 325 kg payload; and The IRB 7600/150 has a 3500 mm reach and a 150 kg payload. Also, harsh environments are no longer an issue if you choose the foundry plus version which can be high pressure steamed and is IP 67 protected. Additionally, for pre-machine environments and clean room versions, there is chip protection available.
With the safeguard of employees being a priority, a range of software safety products are available. These active and passive safety features paired with it also help to protect the robot.
The active features include: a collision detection system to help reduce collision force; an electronically stabilized path (secured by TrueMove) to ensure the robot will maintain its planned path; and the active brake system to control the braking while also ensuring the robot maintains its path. In addition, QuickMove helps the robot to self-tune during its performance and adapt to true payloads. The passive safety features include load identification, moveable mechanical stops, and double-safe position switches.
All in all, the ABB IRB 7600 can offer you high production up time, a safe investment, short cycle times, consistent parts quality, maximized utilization, harsh production environment, and flexible integration and production. We aren't sure what more you could need, this power robot family opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
