ABB Robotics has introduced ArcPack™ Lean 1410, a fully configured, quick-start robotic welding package suitable for small operations. The system includes an IRB 1410 robot; an IRC5 compact controller; a Fronius TransSteel 3500 power supply and wire feeder; and a Tregaskiss 500-amp, air-cooled welding torch. Users also have the option of Miller, Lincoln, or ESAB power supplies.
The robot features an 11-lb. handling capacity with a supplementary 40-lb. load capacity on the upper arm for application equipment. The compact, long-reach robot welds in tight, restricted locations with a positional repeatability of ±-0.00098 in.
With RAPID programming language and an array of arc welding software programs, the compact controller allows less experienced users to program and operate the robot. It features a single-phase power input; external connectors for all signals; and a built-in, expandable 16 in/16 out I/O system.
