Robot-Based Press Automation

Dec. 7, 2020
ABB's IRB 760PT offers 25% faster cycle times and is capable of handling loads up to 450 kg.

The IRB 760PT is a flexible press tending system offering 25% faster cycle times compared to other robot-based press automation systems. It features a revised design that reduces the interference in the robot’s fourth axis. This allows the robots to move freely without colliding with equipment such as press clamps, with no compromise to the working area or the robot’s freedom of movement. It is capable of handling loads up to 450kg and can automatically change tooling. The IRB 760PT features a 3.18m reach, which—when coupled with a linear seventh axis or with the Twin Xbar system—avoids the need to reorient parts between consecutive stamping operations.
