Following close on the heels of the tiny M-1iA, Fanuc has released the M-3iA, another parallel link robot - this time with a larger payload capacity.
The M-3iA can lift up to 6kg. It is designed for speedy, steady, and sophisticated assembly and material handling. This parallel link model is meant for ceiling installation. It provides a cylindrical work envelope and uses an R-30iA controller.
M-3iA parallel link robots are safeguarded with an IP67 rating. This way, all axes can withstand water and dust. The wrist itself is protected from dust or oil misting. The new Fanuc M-3iA is also offered in a food safe version. This particular model is coated in white epoxy for easy acid and alkaline fluid cleaning. It also uses food grade grease.
The new Fanuc M-3iA robot comes in two different versions:
The M-3iA/6A is constructed with six axes of movement - three of which are part of the wrist. This particular model is ideal for assembly work. Weighing a total of 153kg, the handy M-3iA/6S robot is capable of reaching speeds of 2,000 degrees per second.
The less complicated 4-axis M-3iA/6S is more lightweight and swift. Capable of 4,000 degrees per second, this 140kg model has a single rotational axis in its wrist.
