With increased speed, higher payload, and a smaller footprint, the FlexPicker IRB360 is the result of 10 years of experience combined with proven packaging technology. Several important objectives have been met in this design and features include 50% higher payloadup to 3 kg. Increased payload capacity provides two clearly defined benefits: the first is the ability to handle heavier objects; the second is to accommodate the mass of the increasingly sophisticated grippers required in handling diverse products. The average cycle time performance of the IRB360 has improved by over 20%, resulting in a staggering 110 picks per minutes (ppm) at 3 kg. The unit has a competitive edge where there is a particular requirement for movement on a fourth axis. The fourth axis has an extensive work range and, due to excellent motion control and its robust design, does not in any way limit the robot performance.
