Info to all robot history fans out there. Today I was delivered an IRB6 S1 robot. I was looking for one for a long time. The most interesting is that the robot is in a working order. With some extensive help we managed to turn on the robot, synchronize it and run a a couple of simple programs, that were already stored in the memory. All was done on low speed to save the joints etc.
The last service sticker was applied in 2015 AFAIR, so it really worked long years - was used for welding, I got some equipment with the robot itself, some stuff I do not know what is for.
For now I have a question: I opened the back cabinet door and checked the number on the plate on the door - it says 00000161. Could you tell me what is the year of build of the robot with such a number? I can provide any photos with pleasure on request
The cabinet plate is in Swedish, that does not make things easy, the teach pendant is in English though. I need to do a full service of the machine before I start using it. I got a manual to read , any insights appreciated!
How is restoration going ?
