Innovative Design, Enhanced Features, Cutting-Edge Technologies
The IRB 4600 represents a highly efficient, multipurpose robot meticulously designed for short cycle times, particularly beneficial in scenarios where compact robots can be used to create high-density manufacturing cells. This robot empowers the establishment of more compact production cells, leading to increased output and higher-quality results, ultimately driving improved productivity.
Rapid Cycle Times: Thanks to its new, compact, and optimized design, which results in reduced weight, the IRB 4600 can slash cycle times compared to industry benchmarks by up to 25%. It boasts the highest achievable acceleration in its class, coupled with impressive maximum speeds. This heightened acceleration allows for obstacle avoidance and precise path following, ultimately boosting production capacity and overall productivity.
Exceptional Working Range: The IRB 4600 offers versatile positioning options to optimize reach, cycle time, and auxiliary equipment placement. Flexible mounting options, including floor, tilted, semishelf, or inverted mounting, prove invaluable when determining the optimal setup for your specific application.
Compactness: The robot's compactness is evident through its small footprint, slender swing base radius around axis 1, streamlined elbow behind axis 3, compact lower and upper arms, and a sleek wrist design. All these elements contribute to making it the most compact robot in its class. By placing the IRB 4600 closer to the machines it serves, you can create a production cell with reduced floor space, thereby increasing output and productivity.
Top-Tier Protection: ABB's comprehensive protection program, further enhanced with the IRB 4600, includes Foundry Plus, offering IP 67 protection, rust-resistant paint, safeguarded mounting flanges, and protection against molten metal splatters on non-moving cables at the rear of the robot. Additionally, extra protection plates cover the floor cable connections on the foot.
Streamlined Setup and Optimization: To tailor the IRB 4600 for specific applications, a range of high-performing Workpiece Positioners, Track Motions, and Motor and Gear Units are at your disposal. You can also employ RobotStudio, available through subscription, to simulate your production cell and determine the optimal robot position while enabling offline programming. PowerPacs for various applications complement this offering.
The IRB 4600 excels in a wide range of applications, including arc welding, assembly, material handling, machine tending, material removal, cleaning/spraying, dispensing, packing, laser cutting, and laser welding.
OmniCore V250XT Controller: Powered by the versatile OmniCore V250XT controller, the IRB 4600 is ideal for material handling, machine tending, and assembly tasks, ensuring top-notch performance and adaptability.
