ABB Robotics (Auburn Mills, MI) has introduced the IRB 1520ID, an attractively priced, high performance addition to ABB’s dedicated arc welding robot family, says the company. The IRB 1520ID features internal Axis-1 routing of the welding cabling, a compact swing base, and 30 percent less weight than the IRB 1600ID, ABB’s premium performance welding robot. The upper arm integrated dressing (ID) design simplifies programming and provides optimum protection for all media, including welding power and wire, shielding gas, and pressurized air. The company says this extends hose life by 50 percent and allows for more flexible movements, such as those needed for single-motion welds around cylindrical objects or weld seams on parts of a complex geometry.
