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.

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
