If you are seeking a robot that has a smaller, yet powerful IP67 wrist all the while providing shorter cycle times and unmatched versatility, then the ABB IRB 1660ID is for you. It is a a high performance, fast, and agile ID robot built for arc welding or machine tending. The IRB 1660ID’s hollow wrist helps to provide maximum acceleration and speed at all times without fears of damaging the Integrated DressPack. The ABB IRB 1660ID has answered the customer’s needs for a robot that has an improved wire feeding control to help provide high volume production all the while consistently producing superior, quality welds every time.
The powerful wrist is compact, fast, and reliable and it is paired with ABB’s QuickMove Technology which provides up to 10% shorter cycle times. In addition, the arm is strong and rigid which enables up to an 6 kg lift which enables the additional options for heavier torches.
Some other software features available that help make the ABB IRB 1660ID a top choice are ABB’s TrueMove and “Accuracy mode” which help to provide +/- 0.05 mm repeatability. If offline programming is desired, then you may consider adding the RobotStudio which helps the programmers envision the high density cells and to secure safe robot movements, with collision elimination, at all times. The online programming is simplified due to the full control of the hose packages, the compact 125 mm wrist, and the 0.30 mm TCP reorientation accuracy. High density cells help to reduce your costs, while also maximizing your consistently superior output.
All of these traits combine to provide up to 50% lower maintenance costs and a much longer life expectancy. The ABB IRB 1660ID, paired with the IRC5 controller, is truly a spectacular robot that will produce quality performance.
