FANUC, a leading industrial robot maker, will release two models of handling robots.
The “M-1000iA,” which will go into mass production in December, is a large robot with a payload of 1000 kg and a maximum reach of 3253 mm. The M-1000iA adopts a serial link mechanism instead of the parallel link mechanism, which is generally used in heavy payload robots. The M-1000iA has a wide range of motion, including the ability to stand upright and rotate backward, which is not possible with robots with parallel link mechanisms. The M-1000iA is expected to have applications in handling, drilling and other machining processes.
The other model is the “LR-10iA/10”, which will begin mass production in January 2022. It has a wrist payload of 10kg with a maximum reach of 1101mm. It can be installed not only on the floor but also on the ceiling. The LR-10iA/10 has the same footprint as the existing model “LR Mate 200iD/7L”, but with 1.4 times the wrist payload and 1.2 times the maximum reach.
