The inner workings of the Fanuc M6i Robot
Nov 17, 2013
The Fanuc M6i is a strong and versatile robot, sure to bring increase productivity and efficiency to your production line. There are several parts inside the M6i that help it move and function, including the servomotors, the reducers, and the gears.
The Fanuc M6i is an earlier model robot from the Fanuc line. That is not to say that it does not have merit. Unlike other machines that can be obsolete, robots like the M‑6i can last for decades, being retooled and refitted to perform all kinds of applications. Of course, this kind of operation longevity can only be achieved if attention is paid to the inner workings of the robot, and the maintenance it may need.
The Fanuc M 6i has several components that help it to move and function. Three important components are the servomotors, the reducers and the gears. Each of these parts helps the others to perform correctly so the M‑6i can work efficiently.
The servo motors, part number A06B-0123-B175, A06B-0371-B175 and A06B-0113-B075, direct power from the power supply to the gears of the robot so that it can move. These servomotors have the ability to receive feedback from the rest of the robot, which allows them to adjust the power and movement of the robot accordingly.
Another important part in the M6i’s functionality is the reducers, part numbers A97L-0218 – 0223 and A97L-0218 – 0222. The reducers slow the output from the motors and redirect the output where it is needed in the robot. This helps the robot to run more effectively.
And what actually moves the robot? Not the servomotors and not the reducers – no, it is the gears that actually start the robot’s movement. The gears, part numbers A290-7210-V501, A290-7210-V502, A290-7210-X511 and A290-7210-X514, get power from the servomotors and crank the robot to life. Without the gears, the robot would have power, but no mechanical way to get out of its crouched position.
