Compact and lightweight robot

Published:  02 April, 2019

ABB has announced it has launched its smallest, lightest robot yet as part of its growing offering of solutions for small parts assembly. The IRB 1100 was designed to meet the challenges of semiconductor, pharmaceutical and electronics manufacturers needing to handle small and often delicate parts while working at speed without compromising productivity or quality.

ABB says the IRB 1100 offers up to 35% faster cycle times to maximise productivity, and best-in-class repeatable accuracy. Powered by ABB’s new OmniCore controller, it is equipped with advanced motion control capabilities, making it ideal for supporting rapid assembly, pick and place and materials handling applications.

With a 10 % percent smaller footprint and a 20 % lighter, slimmer body compared to previous robot generations, the IRB 1100 can be deployed in confined spaces.
