Courtesy: ABBThe IRB 1660ID is a compact robot for arc welding and machine tending applications and allows end-users to increase productivity and quality, with reduced cycle times. The IRB 1660ID features an Integrated DressPack design that makes it easier to program and simulate predictable cable movements. The decreased cable wear and damage reduces maintenance costs by 50%, and the compact footprint allows for more efficient robot cell layouts, saving valuable space on the factory floor. The Integrated DressPack allows the robot to move at maximum acceleration and speed, enabling fast and reliable movements ideal for machine tending applications. The risk of collision in confined spaces is also eliminated, and the combined 1,390° working range of axes 4, 5 and 6 provides outstanding agility inside CNC machines.
