FANUC Robotics introduces world’s strongest robot
June 25, 2009 – FANUC Robotics America introduced the M-2000iA/1200 super heavy-duty robot, able to lift parts weighing up to 1350 kg (3,000 lbs).

The M-2000iA/1200 has the highest payload and the strongest wrist compared to all other electric six-axis robots available today. It can support a 1350 kg payload with a 0.6 m offset from the faceplate and full articulated motion at the wrist. One M-2000iA/1200 robot can handle a super heavy part, which previously required dual robots, conveyors, lifts and other fixed automation.

The M-2000iA/1200, like all FANUC robots, operates with the company’s latest R-30iA controller with integrated intelligent functions such as vision and force sensing.

M-2000iA - key features and benefits
  • M-2000iA/900L standard payload is 900kg
  • M-2000iA/1200 standard payload is 1200 kg with a1350 kg payload option
  • Vertical lifting stroke of 6.2 m (M-2000iA/900L)
  • Rigid arm offers stable transferring of heavy payloads
  • Strongest wrist in the world handles super heavy products with stability
  • Wrist is IP67 protected for operation in harsh environments
  • Built-in vision and force sensing
  • Reduces costs associated with fixed automation

    Integrated (built-in) Vision
    The FANUC iRVision system is a ready-to-use robotic vision package, available on all FANUC robots, requiring only a camera and cable – no additional processing hardware. It has a 2D robot guidance tool to accomplish part location, error proofing, and other operations that normally require special sensors or custom fixtures. For robotic vision processes that exceed the capability of 2D vision systems, FANUC Robotics offers an integrated 3D vision system.

    Dual Check Safety (DCS) Speed and Position Check Software
    Prior to the application of safety rated robot software, all safeguarding of the robot needed to be external, either as a safety rated limit switch or cam system, safety rated area scanners, or other devices to limit robot travel or enhance protection. DCS safety rated robot software allows the safety design of the robot system to use the robot itself for some of the safety functions.

    The most significant benefit of DCS Speed and Position Check is in applications where the travel of the robot needs to be restricted due to floor space or process limits that are less than the full reach of the robot. Restricting the robot motion in Cartesian space means the robot can be restrained to exactly the area in which it works; something that is not possible with the current systems that limit robot motion externally using limit switches.

    In addition, safe "zones" can be enabled and disabled from an external source such as a safety PLC. Designing a system with multiple zones means an operator can safely enter and leave the workspace of the robot.
