IRB 460

Introducing the IRB 460 - ABB's high-speed robotic palletizer, leading the way in palletizing technology. This compact marvel holds the title of the world's fastest palletizing robot and is specifically designed for end-of-line palletizing and bag palletizing applications. With its impressive capabilities and small footprint, it seamlessly integrates into existing packing lines.


Primary Applications:

  • Palletizing
  • De-palletizing
  • Material handling

Key Features:


  • Reduced Cycle Times: The IRB 460 is a game-changer in palletizing robotics, being the fastest in the world. It significantly reduces cycle times and enhances productivity, particularly in end-of-line and bag palletizing scenarios. With a reach of 2.4 meters and a 110-kilogram payload capacity, this four-axis robot can achieve a remarkable 2,190 cycles per hour with a 60 kg load. This speed advantage amounts to a 15% improvement over its closest competitor.


  • Precision in Motion: ABB's advanced motion control software, QuickMove™ and TrueMove™, ensures that palletizing is executed with exceptional precision and smooth movements. This level of accuracy is essential, especially when handling delicate or sensitive products, without compromising cycle times.


  • Maximized Output with Minimal Footprint: The IRB 460's compact design offers a unique advantage by allowing pallets to be positioned 20% closer to the robot compared to similar-speed, similar-payload robots from other manufacturers. This seemingly small adjustment can boost productivity by up to three percent, making a significant impact.


  • Cost-Effective Ownership and Increased Productivity: Built to meet automotive industry standards, the robot's robust and rigid design guarantees high uptime and minimal maintenance costs. Integrated process cabling prolongs the robot's life and reduces wear. ABB offers the RoboCare three-year warranty package, ensuring trouble-free robot operation at a fixed cost. This package includes ABB's patented wireless Remote Services, enabling experts to monitor robots and recommend optimized maintenance routines for further productivity gains.


  • Effortless Programming: The user-friendly RobotStudio software with Palletizing PowerPac, compatible with standard PCs, simplifies the programming process. Even users with no prior robot programming experience can create programs, simulations, and design palletizing setups. This software "configures" palletizing systems rather than requiring complex programming, reducing programming time by up to 80%.

  • Unparalleled Expertise and Global Support: With over 25 years of experience in the palletizing industry, ABB is a global corporation with a presence in 53 countries and over 100 locations, ensuring exceptional support and service worldwide.


  • Comprehensive Palletizing Solutions: Combine the high-speed IRB 460 palletizer with ABB's FlexGripper - Claw and RobotStudio with Palletizing PowerPac to create the world's fastest robotic bag palletizing system. When all elements work in harmony, path accuracy is optimized, ensuring not only swift but also gentle handling of products. With an ABB robot solution, palletizing will never be a bottleneck, both now and in the future.


The IRB 460 is powered by IRC5 or OmniCore V250XT controllers.
