ABB (Auburn Hills, MI) introduced the IRBT 2005 flexible, compact, modular, medium track motion platform for robots and transfer applications. It is designed to accommodate rapid product changes in applications that require an extended working range and high degrees of speed and accuracy. It is available with up to two carriages as a robot track, with additional carriage plates available to carry any necessary process equipment, and up to three carriages as a transfer track. The modular design is comprised of one-meter lengths that can be connected to form a track between 2 and 21 meters.

The platform is available in two variants: standard with covers on the rails and rack only, and fully covered. The system can also be combined with other accessories such as part positioners. With a maximum payload of 1200 kg (2,640 lbs.), the platform transfer version is suited for applications such as indexing different fixtures into an automation cell, and transferring materials such as car bodies between different working stations.
