New Modular Large Robots

ABB ROBOTICS added two modular large robots to its portfolio, the IRB 7710 and IRB 7720. Together with the previously introduced IRB 5710-IRB 5720 and IRB 6710-IRB 6740, this series offers 46 different variants capable of handling payloads between 70 and 620 kg, with more choice and greater flexibility, and performance, for manufacturing operations.

The new IRB 7710 and IRB 7720 offer 16 new variants and are well-suited to support applications in various industries, including electric, hybrid, and traditional automotive production – from press automation, body-in-white, EV battery construction, and final assembly.

The robots are suitable for high-payload activity (e.g., giga casting, high-speed press tending, palletizing) as well as high-accuracy contact applications (such as machining and friction stir welding.)

ABB’s OmniCore™ robot control platform achieves class-leading motion control with path accuracy down to 0.6 mm, even with multiple robots running at high speeds of up to 1600 mm/s and moving payloads of up to 620 kg.

Customers also benefit from an up to 25% reduction in cycle times, enhancing productivity and quality.

The IRB 7710’s energy efficient design in combination with OmniCore’s re-generation technology achieves up to a 30% energy reduction, while the built-in power pack can relay energy back to the grid.

“As businesses introduce new technologies and components to meet productivity and sustainability goals, we’ve engineered our modular large robot portfolio to enable them to select the best robots and variants to allow them to efficiently undertake their operations,” stated Marc Segura, president of ABB Robotics Division. “With the most comprehensive portfolio of mechatronic platforms, industrial robots, cobots, and AMRs in the marketplace, the latest robots extend our portfolio even further, helping our customers navigate labor shortages and ensuring they remain competitive, while operating in a sustainable manner.“
