Be sure to visit ABB’s stand (K50) at The Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition. The Power and Automation giant will showcase key new features of its IRB 360 FlexPicker with the unveiling of an innovative modular concept solution offering high speed precision pick and placement with a host of options specific to the packaging industry.
Leading ABB’s palletizing offer and another of the live robot demonstrations on the stand is the compact IRB 460 – said to be the ‘fastest palletizing robot in the world’. Capable of up to 2,190 cycles per hour, this 4-axis robot is perfect for high-speed end-of-line palletizing and bag palletizing. The IRB 460 occupies 20% less floor space and runs 15% faster than its nearest rivals. Visit the stand to find out more about ABB’s range of palletizing robots, grippers and the easy-to-use programming software, RobotStudio Palletizing PowerPac. This program, which runs on a PC, allows users to configure, simulate and program ABB robots and grippers for palletizing solutions, with little or no robot programming experience required – the ABB palletizing suite is designed to make palletizing simpler, faster and more efficient.
The stand will also feature ABB’s smallest six axis multi-purpose robot the IRB 120 together with the IRC5 compact single phase controller, offering all the functionality and expertise of the ABB range but in a much smaller package. Brimming with benefits this lightweight robot arm is truly the most portable and effortless to integrate without any restrictions on mounting and is ideal for pick and place applications. The IRB 120 is also available as an ISO 5 (Class 100) cleanroom version, an ideal option for food and beverage, pharmaceutical and packaging applications.
One of ABB’s Authorised Value Providers, Newtech Limited, will also be present on the ABB stand demonstrating ultrasonic cutting with an IRB 1600 six axis robot. Newtech, a leading UK supplier of ultrasonic cutting systems, has recently joined ABB Robotics’ exclusive AVP network. The accreditation was granted in recognition of Newtech’s achievements in expanding the original core portfolio of ultrasonic cutting systems and machine manufacturing. Newtech is dedicated to developing automated technology that is specially designed for efficient operation and increased productivity.
