Need a robot that can handle tough manufacturing environments?

ABB’s compact IRB 1100 robot and OmniCore controller are protected against water, dust and debris generated by applications such as 3C polishing, wet grinding, buffing and deburring. Its fast-moving IP67 body seals all electrical components against contaminants. There are two variants – one with a 4 kg payload and 475 mm reach, and the other with a 580 mm reach.

The compact OmniCore C90XT controller is also tough. It’s IP54-rated for installation close to dirty, wet and dusty processes. Extra internal space supports process-related equipment for communication, conveyor tracking and external axis. And thanks to its lean format, the controller fits into tight spaces.

ABB Robotics in Auburn Hills, Mich. makes industrial and collaborative robots.
