The ABB IRB 6640 Cleanroom Robot

Dec 22, 2008

ABB's IRB 6640 cleanroom robot can tackle the tedious solar panel jobs that require a precise and high-repetition solution. The IRB 6640 robot also brings its strength and flexibility. Contact experts today to start the integration process of the ABB IRB 6640 cleanroom robot.


Neces­si­ty is the moth­er of inven­tion. As the solar pan­el indus­try grows, robot man­u­fac­tur­ers are build­ing cre­ative answers as seen with ABB s trans­for­ma­tion of the IRB6640 into a clean room robot; ready for tedious solar pan­el jobs. Solar thin film pro­duc­tion is tedious and exact — semi­con­duc­tors, elec­tri­cal lay­ers and glass must be care­ful­ly fused. This requires clean han­dling in a clean envi­ron­ment. The size and weight of solar pan­els make robot automa­tion an obvi­ous match for this industry.

The IRB 6640 clean­room robot has been cer­ti­fied by the lead­ing insti­tute in clean room indus­try (IPA) and has been thor­ough­ly test­ed and packed to ensure a min­i­mum of par­ti­cle gen­er­a­tion dur­ing ser­vice. It has passed all tests and ful­ly meets the strin­gent class 5 CR specs. The 6‑axis ABB IRB6640 robot also meets the thin-film PV (pho­to­volta­ic) class clean­room standard.

Fur­ther­more, the ABB IRB6640 is pro­tect­ed with three coats of paint — primer, white paint, and a clear top lay­er. Screws and pan­els are safe­guard­ed with plas­tic and then paint­ed and the wiring is also pro­tect­ed with a cable car­ri­er. Addi­tion­al remov­able cov­ers are also used to fur­ther pro­tect oth­er screws and pan­els, enabling prop­er trans­porta­tion and the pre­ven­tion of worn areas. 

IRB 6640 remains the per­fect robot for var­i­ous appli­ca­tions focus­ing on high pro­duc­tion capac­i­ty. The stan­dard IRB 6640 has a large pay­load, increased path per­for­mance with the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of True­Move and Quick­Move, eas­i­er instal­la­tion, max­i­mum avail­abil­i­ty, and sim­ple main­te­nance. Addi­tion­al fea­tures of the ABB IRB 6640 incldue high speeds, short cycle times, easy pro­gram­ming, and the abil­i­ty to syn­chro­nize with exter­nal devices. 

The ABB IRB 6640 clean room robot will help to improve pro­duc­tiv­i­ty by low­er­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing costs and sub­se­quent­ly raise pro­duc­tion out­put while achiev­ing high qual­i­ty prod­ucts and almost improv­ing work­place healthy and safe­ty.
