ABB Australia have announced the launch of the robot, IRB 4600. The IRB 4600 robot features a compact and lightweight design with an upper arm of aluminium and spur gears.
The IRB 4600 robot incorporates QuickMove and TrueMove, ABB Australia’s sharp motion technology that defines precise performance and path accuracy with the shortest possible rapid cycle time.
The IRB 4600 robot comes in four versions, which include two short-arm versions (2.05 m) for 60 or 45 kg payload and two long-arm (2.50 & 2.55 m) versions for 40 or 20 kg.
The IRB 4600 robot features a wide working range, minimal cycle times and advanced path performance. It can be mounted on the floor, shelf, tilted and also inverted. With its semi-shelf capability, it has a better reach below the base of the robot and can be placed on top of the machines.
The IRB 4600 robot comes with a weight of above 400 kilos and is light. The new design without a parallel rod gives a wide working range and the compact body fits into the user’s workshops, taking up less floor space. The IRB 4600 robot is designed to withstand harsh environments and is protected according to the IP 67 standard.
