ABB IRB6700 Robotic Arm

ABB Robot Arm

The ABB IRB6700 200-260 robot arm has a 200 kilogram payload and a reach of 2.6 meters. Used in automated factories, the robot arm is flexible in that it can be “retooled” to accomplish many different tasks. Due to the recent development of software tools that allow the quick programming of the robot (and even real time movement), the robotic arm can be used for one-off tasks, making it an ideal tool when paired with parametric software. Through the software and the flexibility of the robot, mass customization is finally within reach.
