The IRB 1200 from ABB Robotics features a compact footprint but a large work envelope, offering flexibility, ease of use and short cycle times for a range of material-handling, machine-tending and small-parts-assembly applications.

The robot is designed with no offset in the second axis, delivering a longer stroke that enables it to be placed very close to the workpiece and still be functional. Combined with other features, this longer stroke enables smaller work cells and shorter cycle times than comparable robots, the company says. The footprint is most compact when the lightweight robot is invert-mounted on a ceiling or wall.

The robot is available in two variants: a 700-mm-reach model with a payload ranging to 7 kg and a 900-mm model with a payload ranging to 5 kg.  Both models can be mounted at virtually any angle and come with IP 40 protection. IP 67 protection is available as an option.
