18 ABB Robots in Terminator Salvation

Jun 7, 2009

The ABB robots can tackle a wide range of tasks such as arc welding, assembly, machine tending, and pick and place. They are so accomplished they were asked to be a part of the Terminator Salvation. The ABB IRB 1600 can handle up to 6 kg in payload capacity and has a 1.2 m horizontal reach, offering flexibility and versatility.


For­get Chris­t­ian Bale — the real stars in Ter­mi­na­tor Sal­va­tion were 18 ABB indus­tri­al robots!

These burly 6‑axis robots — twelve ABB IRB 6620 and six ABB IRB 1600 robots — were shown build­ing Cyborgs towards the end of the block­buster. Accord­ing to a recent ABB press release, these par­tic­u­lar ABB mod­els were sin­gled out by the prod­uct place­ment com­pa­ny for their tough indus­tri­al look.

Learn about the indus­tri­al robots in Ter­mi­na­tor Sal­va­tion:

The ABB IRB 1600 robot has a rel­a­tive­ly light­weight 6kg pay­load capac­i­ty, and a 1.2m hor­i­zon­tal reach. When it comes to instal­la­tion, the ABB IRB 1600 is very flex­i­ble. It can be mount­ed from the floor, wall, invert­ed, or even attached at an angle!

This robot is typ­i­cal­ly found per­form­ing one of the fol­low­ing indus­tri­al jobs: arc weld­ing, machine tend­ing, assem­bling, pick and place.

The much beefi­er ABB IRB 6620 robot is capa­ble of a 150kg pay­load and a 2.2m hor­i­zon­tal reach. Ide­al for spot weld­ing and machine tend­ing, the ABB IRB 6620, like the IRB 1600 is very flexible.
