I have a IRB6400RF IRC5 M2004 standard robot with nothing external connected.
Is it reasonable for an amateur to buy used parts and install an external rotary axis to this system? Where do I start?
Any recommended hardware?
Do I need to add another drive in the controller?
Do I need extra options in the controller software?
ABB says it's not possible because my system is "obsolete". "Better to buy new". But the system duty time is 1800 hours and everything is working fine, so that seems stupid.
Care to give me some advice?
