The ASEA IRB was constructed by Björn Weichbrodt, Ove Kullborg, Bengt Nilsson and Herbert Kaufmann and was manufactured by ASEA in Sweden/Västerås. The first model, IRB 6, was developed in 1972-1973 on assignment by the ASEA CEO Curt Nicolin and was shown for the first time at the end of August 1973. The example shown in the technical museum is the first robot that was sold. It was bought by Magnussons in Genarp to wax and polish rust-free tubes bent at 90° angles. This robot was donated to the museum during ASEA's 100-year anniversary in 1983.
