Taking palletizing to new heights.
Thanks to its state-of-the-art 4-axes design, customers can look forward to a speedy machine that combines a 3.15 meter reach with a 250 kg payload, making it ideal for palletizing bags, boxes, crates, bottles and more. In fact, ABB is set to reinforce its position as the sole global supplier of complete robot based packaging line automation.
Pushing the working envelope
The IRB 660 is a dedicated palletizer that blends speed, reach and payload like no other robot on the market. This is an exceptionally fast 4-axis machine that combines a 3.15 meter reach with a 250 kg payload, making it ideal for palletizing bags, boxes, crates, bottles and more.
The IRB 660 is considerably faster than its predecessor. Its optimized motor power and motion performance ensure significantly shorter cycle times than competing products. The new palletizer comes in a high-speed version capable of handling 180 kg payloads at full speed, and as a 250 kg version for high throughput.
The robot’s impressive reach means it can service up to four in-feed conveyors, two pallet stacks, one slip sheet stack and four palletizing out-feeding lines. In fact, the IRB 660 has the versatility, reach and handling capacity to meet the demands of just about any palletizing applications.
The IRB 660 is easy to come to grips with. ABB’s multi-functional IRC5 controller and comprehensive packaging line software, Pick Master, house all the key functions for quick, easy programming and intuitive operation on the shop floor. Furthermore, the robot’s rugged design and IP 67 tightness make for steady performance in even the toughest environments. As well as ensuring those extra lengthy service intervals!
