ABB has introduced the IRB 910SC, its first ever line of SCARA (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm) robots. The latest addition to the ABB small robot portfolio, the IRB 910SC has a maximum payload of 6 kg, and is available in reaches of 450 mm, 550 mm and 650 mm. The single arm robot is able to operate in a confined space and is tabletop mountable. All variants are modular by design, with differing linking arm lengths allowing end users to specify the optimal reach required for a specific application.
“When designing the IRB 910SC, we emphasized speed and accuracy,” said Phil Crowther, ABB product manager for small robots. “While small in size, our IRB 910SC robots incorporate the same high performance and design concepts as other ABB small robots such as superior path control and accuracy in a compact footprint.”
The new ABB SCARA robot is designed for a variety of general-purpose applications requiring fast, repeatable and articulate point-to-point movements. Target applications include small parts assembly, material handling, tray kitting, component placement, parts inspection, laboratory automation, prescription drug dispensing and other applications requiring rapid cycle times, high precision and unmatched reliability.
Each SCARA variant is IP54-rated for optimum protection against dust and liquids and a Clean Room ISO-5 option is under development.
