Following the introduction of its first lightweight parallel link design robot, the 0.5kg M-1iA, FANUC Robotics has now launched its larger 6kg payload version, the M-3iA.

Available in 4 or 6 axes configurations, it provides a compact solution for machine or system integration. Aimed at assembly and packing operations, the parallel link structure lets the unit be safely located in confined areas.

Its cylindrical work envelope, 0.5m deep, 1.35m diameter, is concentric to the robot mounting base making it simple to position and guard relative to peripheral equipment.

All joint motors are positioned away from the wrist avoiding being exposed to high acceleration and, dependant on application, aggressive materials. Joints and mated components are sealed to IP67.

A food and pharmaceutical version is available. The M-3iA Food robot has white epoxy finish for harsh material protection which allows the arm to be disinfected with acid and alkaline fluids.
