ABB's UK robotics business will be demonstrating its latest generation of picking and packing and force control technology.
The new FlexPicker 360, offers improved cycle times of 20 per-cent and an increased payload of 50 per-cent. ABB's RobotWare Machining Force Control (FC) technology can deliver improved automated grinding and finishing of castings.
Both products mark part of ABB's continuing drive to help UK industrial companies to realise new levels of productivity and product quality through the adoption of robotic technology.
For packaging applications, the FlexPicker 360 offers the ability to handle heavier objects and accommodate the mass of increasingly sophisticated grippers required in handling diverse products.
Complementing the FlexPicker are ABB's proven PickMaster software and its IRC5 controller. The PickMaster software offers greatly simplified programming, enabling users to model for applications and optimise multiple robot installations. The IRC5 controller is an integral part of the FlexPicker robot. The IRC5 is also now available in a panel-mounted version, offering substantial space savings and easy integration into machines and production lines.
ABB's RobotWare Machining Force Control (FC) technology provides, for the first time, force control in different machining applications where a robot's sensitivity responds to process forces.
