October 15, 2018 – ABB has introduced its new invert-mounted IRB 910INV SCARA robot.
By mounting the IRB 910INV on the ceiling, manufacturers can increase the space efficiency and flexibility of each cell and do more complex tasks even in confined spaces. The ceiling mounting also allows the IRB 910INV to collaborate with other robots and machines simultaneously in the same footprint, further boosting productivity.
The IRB 910INV has the same motion control as the original ABB IRB 910 family, for repeatable point-to-point accuracy in picking and placing, assembly and testing. This includes electronics small parts assembly tasks such as screw driving, inserting or mounting components, and automated inspections solutions for quality control.
The IRB 910INV will be certified for clean-room applications in the future. The compact and lightweight IRB 910INV is available in two variants – one has a maximum payload of three kilograms with 350-mm reach, and one has a maximum of six-kilogram payload with 550-mm reach. ABB’s SCARA robots are ideal for applications that require fast yet highly accurate point-to-point movements, such as electronics assembly, laboratory automation, and dispensing.
