December 12, 2018 - ABB has expanded its SCARA robot family with the launch of an invert-mounted model for small parts assembly applications. By mounting the IRB 910INV on the ceiling, manufacturers can increase the space efficiency of each cell and handle more complex tasks in cramped locations. The inverted mounting also allows the IRB 910INV to collaborate with other robots and machines simultaneously in the same footprint. Utilising ABB’s motion control technology, the IRB 910INV offers repeatable accuracy for applications including picking and placing, assembly and testing, electronics small parts assembly tasks such as screw driving, inserting or mounting components, and automated inspections for quality control. The IRB 910INV will also be certified for cleanroom applications in the future. Two variants of the IRB 910INV are available, one with a maximum payload of 3 kg with 350 mm reach, and the other offering a maximum 6 kg payload with 550 mm reach.
