ABB Australia  have announced that they will demonstrate the future of robotic technology during National Manufacturing Week (NMW) at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see the new IRB 4600 robot, an accurate, low-weight, medium-size robot with 20kg to 60kg payload. The IRB 4600 robot has a new compact and optimised design resulting in a low weight. The IRB 4600 robot can cut cycle times of the industry benchmark by up to 25%.

National Manufacturing Week will also see the Australian launch of TrueView, a vision-guided robotic system, which can see and react to changes in an industrial work environment. TrueView enables ABB Australia’s robots to precisely locate the grip points of a disoriented object within a 3D space.

ABB will also be showing TrueMove/QuickMove, Multimove and Remote Service on show:

  • TrueMove and Quickmove: Based on advanced dynamic modelling, TrueMove and Quickmove (standard with IRC5 controller) optimise the performance of every ABB robot for the physically shortest possible cycle time and precise path accuracy.
  • MultiMove: Allows up to four robots to be perfectly synchronised by equipping each robot with its own drive module and shares a common controller.
  • Remote Service: An advanced technology in robot servicing enables a robot to automatically alert a central database through wireless GPRS technology and the Internet if there is an error. The alert then triggers an SMS to ABB Australia’s on-call service engineer, who can immediately access a detailed data and error log and quickly identify the exact fault and respond appropriately.
