PPMA Show: ABB to Highlight IRB 460 Palletising Robot

Be sure to visit ABB's stand (F42) at The PPMA Show. Exhibiting with packaging system specialist and ABB system integrator, RM Group UK Ltd, ABB will be showcasing key features of its IRB 460 robot, said to be the ‘fastest palletising robot in the world’.

This robot takes the lead in ABB's comprehensive palletising suite and is capable of up to 2,190 cycles per hour, making it perfect for high-speed end-of-line palletising and bag palletising. The IRB 460 occupies 20 percent less floor space and runs 15 percent faster than its nearest rivals.

The stand will also include more information about ABB's range of palletizing robots, grippers, plus its easy-to-use programming software, RobotStudio Palletising PowerPac. Designed to make palletising simpler, faster and more efficient, this PC-based program allows users to configure, simulate and program ABB robots and grippers for palletising solutions, with little or no robot programming experience required.

An ABB system integrator, RM Group specialises in the supply and manufacture of a wide range of manual & automated packaging systems. As well as ABB's IRB460, RM's stand will also feature its own range of manual bagging machines, palletising systems, bulk filling and material handling systems, plus its mobile packaging system.
