The speed and accuracy of industrial robots is breathtaking, and video is the ideal media to demonstrate this.
FANUC Robotics is proud to introduce the latest in a series of high-speed parallel-link “Genkotsu” robots: The FANUC M-2iA Robot. Two new models of the M-2iA robot are available to meet a variety of applications — The M-2iA/3S and the M-2iA/3SL – both offering a 3 kilogram payload and four-axes of motion with a single-axis rotation at the wrist. The M-2iA/3SL seen in this video is a long-arm model that offers a larger motion range than the M-2iA/3S model.
The M-2iA/3SL four-axis robot seen here picks stamped parts from an infeed conveyor using iRVision line tracking to locate the randomly-oriented parts. The robot orients the parts and places them onto an outfeed conveyor. The M-2iA is ideal for applications requiring high-speed and accurate handling of a variety of products in many applications. A completely enclosed structure makes it safe for food environments.
The four-axis M-2iA has a single-axis wrist for simple assembly and high-speed picking operations, offering speeds up to 3500 degrees per second. The M-2iA’s hollow wrist allows hoses and cables to be routed internally, which minimizes wear and tear on the tooling cables.
