Robot is fast, cuts cycle times

A reliable counterweight and mechanical springs counter balance the robot to shorten cycle times and improve accuracy.


506_smallfeature_ABB-IRB-8700_robotABB Robotics’ IRB 8700 industrial robot handles heavy payloads up to 800 kg with a reach of 3.5 m to boost uptime and reliability in industrial applications.

The robot, which ABB says is 25% faster than competing models, has only one motor and one gear per robot axis rather than more typical dual motors and/or gears.

There are no gas springs, only a reliable counterweight and mechanical springs for counter balancing to deliver shorter cycle times and improve accuracy.

ABB is a robotics manufacturer based in Zurich, Switzerland.
