September 27, 2018 - ABB introduced the IRB 1100 at the China International Industry Fair 2018 in Shanghai - its smallest, lightest robot to date as part of its offering of solutions for small parts assembly. The IRB 1100 was designed to meet the challenges of semiconductor, pharmaceutical and electronics manufacturers.
Powered by ABB’s OmniCore controller, the IRB 1100 is equipped with motion control capabilities, for supporting rapid assembly, pick and place, and material handling applications.
The IRB 1100 is also among the first of a new era of robots built around ABB’s flexible design approach, which will help introduce a variety of robot sizes and variants that can be combined into tailored solutions. IRB 1100 will be certified for cleanroom applications in the future and is available in two variants – one with a 4kg payload with 475 mm reach, and one with a 4 kg payload and 580mm reach.
