ABB Robot for high-pressure water-jet cleaning applications
The IRB 6790 Foundry Prime robot is designed for high-pressure water-jet cleaning applications. The robot’s flexibility allows cleaning of different part geometries in the same cell with zero changeover time, which supports mass customization for automotive manufacturers as well as original equipment manufacturers and their tier suppliers. This solution provides increased speed and, on average, 5% faster cycle time. The third-generation robot can work in an environment that normally is not suitable for industrial robots, with enhanced protection from heat, cleaning pressure, chemicals and dirt typically found in harsh and wet environments. IP69-rated protection prevents against water and dust ingress.
