Intelligent, flexible, and high-speed assembly, handling

October 04, 2010 Written by  MP&P Staff
FANUC Robotics America introduces its new M-3iA intelligent, parallel-link robot designed to maximize speed and flexibility for assembly, small part handling and picking applications.
The M-3iA robot is a larger version of the company’s M-1iA robot introduced last year. Available in a four- or six-axis model, the M-3iA offers the same unique parallel-link structure, and accommodates payloads up to 6kg.  In addition, it has the largest work envelope of any robot in its class (1350mm x 500mm).

The M-3iA six-axis model has a three-axis, patent-pending wrist for complex assembly tasks.  The extreme flexibility offered by the three-axis wrist enables the robot to pick up and insert parts at simple or compound angles, and twist parts into place, similar to the flexibility offered by a manual operator.  

A four-axis M-3iA has a single-axis wrist for simple assembly and high-speed picking operations, offering speeds up to 4000 degrees per second.  In addition, a hollow wrist allows hoses and cables to be routed internally, which minimizes wear and tear on the tooling cables.  

The M-3iA, like all FANUC robots, operates with the company’s latest R-30iA controller with integrated intelligent functions such as iRVision®, Force Sensing, Robot Link, and Collision Guard.
