ABB Robotics will be showcasing high speed pick-and-place technology featuring the ABB IRB 360 FlexPicker and a model from ABB’s recently introduced SCARA robot line. The ABB FlexPicker is a high-speed pick-and-place delta robot, and is available in 1, 3 and 8 kg variants at the standard 1130 mm reach, and 1 and 6 kg variants at the extended 1600 mm reach. The 8 kg model provides a robust solution for handling heavier individual products, heavier tooling and larger product groupings. The 1 kg and 3 kg FlexPickers are available in an IP69K rated stainless model, and the 6 kg and 8 kg models are available with IP67 protection suitable for most hygienic applications.
The IRB 910SC (shown) is part of ABB’s line of SCARA (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm) robots. It is designed for a variety of general-purpose applications requiring fast, repeatable and articulate point-to-point movements. The single arm robot is able to operate in a confined space and is tabletop mountable. The maximum payload is 6 kg, available in reaches of 450 mm, 550 mm and 650 mm.
Both the FlexPicker and the SCARA robots feature Soft Robotics grippers, a new gripping technology that can manipulate items of varying size, shape and weight with a single device. They’re designed for warehousing, manufacturing and food processing environments where the uncertainty and variety of products being handled has prevented automated solutions from working in the past.
