Our lives are touched daily by the Internet. It widens our horizons and improves our capabilities by connecting us to a wider community and their collective knowledge. A similar revolution in industry is connecting intelligent machines and the collective data generated from a growing number of electronic sensors. We are ‘seeing, hearing, and feeling’ our industrial processes like never before and this empowers the decisions we make to optimize performance. This revolution allows us to operate machines more safely, with greater efficiency, and with lower environmental impact, not just individually, but as complete systems, working in harmony to enhance power and productivity for a better world. For over a decade ABB has been working to develop and enhance process control systems, communications solutions, sensors and software for the Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP). These technologies enable their customers in industries, utilities and infrastructure to analyze their data more intelligently, optimize their operations, boost their productivity, and their flexibility. ABB is advancing the IoTSP by helping their customers develop their existing technologies, while keeping sight of our enduring commitment to safety, reliability, cyber security and data privacy.

IRB 140 Robot
IRB 140 Robot
IRB 140 industrial robot is a six axis multipurpose robot that handles payload of 6 kg, with long reach (810 mm). The IRB 140 can be floor mounted, inverted or on the wall in any angle. Available as Standard, Foundry Plus 2, Clean Room and Wash versions, all mechanical arms completely IP67 protected, making IRB 140 easy to integrate in and suitable for a variety of applications. Uniquely extended radius of working area due to bend-back mechanism of upper arm, axis 1 rotation of 360 degrees and flexible mounting capabilities.IRB 140 Foundry Plus 2 and Wash versions are suitable for operating in extreme foundry environments and other harsh environments with high requirements for corrosion resistance and tightness. In addition to the IP67 protection, excellent surface treatment makes the robot high-pressure steam washable. The white-finish Clean Room version meets clean room class 10 regulations, making it especially suited for environments with stringent cleanliness standards.
IRB 6700 - Robot for Harsh Environments
IRB 6700 - Robot for Harsh Environments
A new world of possibilities opens up with ABB’s new IRB 6600 robot family. It comes in several versions, with different lengths of the arm and matching handling capacities.Upper arm extenders and different wrist modules will allow customization to each process. As the robot can bend fully backwards, the working range is greatly extended and the robot fits well into dense production lines. Typical application areas are spot welding, material handling, and machine tending. A built-in Service Information System monitors the motion and load of the machine and optimizes service requirements by itselfA range of software products have been added – all falling under the umbrella designation of Active Safety – to protect not only personnel in the unlikely event of an accident, but also the robot itself.Collision detection, which reduces the collision force substantially, is especially useful on robots handling high payloads.An Electronically Stabilized Path will ensure thatthe robot will maintain its planned path to its best capability considering acceleration, drag, gravity and inertia. This feature is secured through our TrueMove.
