ABB Robotics this month added the IRB 930 to its industrial SCARA robotic portfolio. The corporate mentioned it designed the brand new robotic to satisfy the calls for of recent development alternatives in conventional and new markets. The IRB 930 has three variants able to dealing with payloads weighing 12 and 22 kg (26.4 and 48.5 lb., respectively).
“Our newest SCARA addition broadens our portfolio, providing our prospects much more automation decisions,” mentioned Marc Segura, president of ABB Robotics, in a launch.
“Whether or not 3C [computer, communication, and consumer electronics], automotive electronics, electrical car battery cells, or photo voltaic panels, our new IRB 930’s larger payload and longer attain brings the efficiency benefits of our wider SCARA vary to new and conventional segments alike,” he mentioned. “With the worldwide SCARA market predicted to develop to $15.54 billion by 2027 at a compound annual development charge of 14.4%, the IRB 930 positions ABB nicely for development.”
IRB 930 provides velocity and pressure
ABB Robotics mentioned its new system is engineered for quick point-to-point duties that demand excessive payloads and enormous work areas. The IRB 930 has three variants, which ABB Robotics claimed present the very best payload functionality of any SCARA robotic in its class.
As well as, the 22 kg variant delivers a ten% enhance in throughput by dealing with extra and heavier workpieces without delay, it asserted.
The IRB 930 additionally offers a 200% enhance in stronger push-down energy, with a most downward pressure of 250N. This makes it appropriate for force-intensive operations equivalent to screwdriving and meeting duties required when working with parts equivalent to battery cells, show panels and photo voltaic modules, mentioned ABB.
ABB touts precision and expanded product line
The corporate mentioned its OmniCore controller will energy the brand new IRB 930 providing “best-in-class movement management by TrueMove and QuickMove alongside built-in digital connectivity and scalable features.” The movement management delivers a cycle time of 0.38 seconds, with a repeatability deviation place of 0.01 mm, it defined.
“This efficiency empowers the IRB 930 to boost hourly manufacturing charges whereas upholding high-quality manufacturing requirements,” mentioned ABB.
The brand new IRB 930 joins the IRB 910INV, IRB 920 and IRB 920T within the firm’s vary of SCARA robots to prospects, assembly their necessities for dealing with payloads starting from 3 to 22 kg (6.6 to 48.5 lb.). ABB mentioned its high-performance robots are designed to be used in numerous industries equivalent to packaging and manufacturing, the place excessive velocity and excessive repeatability pick-and-place and meeting operations are required.
The worldwide marketplace for SCARA robots might broaden from $6.1 billion in 2023 to $19.2 billion by 2033 at a compound annual development charge (CAGR) of 12.1%, based on Truth.MR. It cited rising demand within the automotive, chemical, meals and beverage, and chemical industries.
Equally, industryARC listed ABB as a market chief, and it famous the utility and comparatively low value of possession of SCARA robots for functions within the meals and beverage business.
