Pre-Engineered Application-Specific Robotic Cells

February 1, 2010

ABB Robotics, Auburn Hills, MI, has developed the Universal Small Cell (USC), a standard robotic-cell platform that can be integrated with the necessary process equipment for specific applications. The pre-engineered features of the USC provide a building block of elements common to all robotic applications, simplifying installation of wiring and components.

The common platform minimizes mechanical and electrical engineering design costs, and the volume production of a common unit reduces labor, assembly and material costs. It’s built with modular equipment, allowing the cells to be used independently or as part of a multi-cell assembly zone, an assembly line or a complete workshop.

Standard features include an IRB 1410, 1600 or 2400 robot with controller and graphical HMI teach pendant; a 180-in. manually indexed two-station positioner; all of the required safety equipment and perimeter guarding; a metal mounting base; and dual cell doors with interlock device. Customize the USC for assembly, arc welding, cutting, deburring, grinding, trimming and polishing.
