The retooled IRB 120T 6-axis robot provides significant increases in the maximum speeds of axes 4, 5 and 6, delivering increased cycle speeds from the standard model. Comparing a 1kg picking cycle of 25 x 300 x 25, the new unit completes a cycle in 0.52 seconds, a 10 percent improvement from the 0.58 seconds of the standard model. With the addition of a 180° axis 6 reorientation to the movement, the speed improvement grows to 25 percent, 0.69 seconds per cycle compared to 0.92 seconds. The IRB 120T will be ideal for assembly and pick and place applications requiring extensive reorientation of the product, commonly found in the food and beverage, consumer packaging, consumer electronics, electrical and Tier 1 automotive industries. The unit is available with the compact version of the IRC5 controller, making it easy to program and control for a variety of tasks.
