The ABB IRB 8700/550 with its simplified yet high quality design, this robot is easy to use and performs with ease. The IRB 8700-550/4.20has an IP 67. Simplify your heavy material handling applications with this new ABB IRB 8700/550 robot.
The IRB 8700 comes in two configurations, one with a reach of 4.2 meters and a payload of 550 kg (620 kg with the wrist down; 475 kg with LeanID) and another with a reach of 3.5 meters and a payload of 800 kg (1000 kg with the wrist down; 630 kg with LeanID).
High payload robots are typically known as being very slow, but the IRB 8700 with a compact footprint, optimized counterweight, parallel linkages, stiff axes, and fewer drive motors, keeps its momentum down and speed up.
Features and benefits:
25% faster speeds than other robots in this size class
Highly reliable with simplified design and Foundry Plus 2 protection standard
Built around LeanID for reduced wear on dress packs and ease of simulation
Built using non-hazardous materials
