On the strength of a heritage of more than 130 years of innovation, ABB is one of the worldwide leaders in industrial robotics and machine automation. The group is present in a wide variety of sectors of activity: automotive, construction, health, cosmetics, agribusiness, etc.
ABB robots are classified in five utilisation categories:
- Articulated robots combining agility and precision: going from the relatively compact IRB120, to the IRB 7600, ideal for heavy loads.
- Collaborative robots (cobots), such as the YuMi® range, capable of meticulously repeating precise movements indefinitely.
- Painting robots, such as the well-known 7-axis IRB 5500-27.
- The delta range of robots which pick and pack small articles (IRB 360 and IRB 390).
- The high-precision SCARA robots, which owe their accuracy to their articulated arm (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm), such as the ceiling-mounted IRB 910INV.
Fitting an ABB robot with an ASP cover offers you the assurance of having a high-performance cover perfectly suited to the mechanism for the harshest processes.
