ABB Robotics offers the IRB 1200 Foundry Plus 2, a foundry robot for material handling and machine tending. This compact robot can increase flexibility and reduce cycle times for precision die casting processes such as smartphone cases and other electrical components. Now protected with Foundry Plus 2, ABB’s optional protection system, the IRB 1200 can withstand harsh environments and meets the requirements of protection ratings IP66/67. The robot is IP66/67-compliant from base to wrist, meaning that the robot’s electrical compartments are sealed against liquid and solid contaminants. ABB Foundry Plus 2 robots are also resistant to corrosion and can withstand high-pressure steam washing.

The IRB 1200 comes in two variants which can handle a range of applications and are cost effective due to commonality of parts. The 700-mm reach variant can carry a payload of ranging to 7 kg, while the longer-reach 900-mm variant can carry up to 5 kg of payload.
