ABB Robotics has added an 8 kg model to its IRB 360 FlexPicker line, supplementing the existing 1 kg and 3 kg models and expanding the high speed picking and packing performance of the most widely used Delta robot in the industry to heavier items. With over 5,000 worldwide installations since 1997, the FlexPicker has been the leader in state-of-the-art picking and packing technology, providing greater flexibility and versatility than hard automation.
The 8 kg version of the IRB 360 robot has been re-engineered to handle higher payloads and improved pick-and-place performance. The new design includes a redesigned carbon fiber arm-set, a new delta plate designed to handle larger weights and inertias, and improved motion tuning. The new 8kg unit also features a deeper (350 mm) work envelope than the other 1130 mm reach FlexPicker models.
