Meet the Fanuc M‑20 Series Robots

The Fanuc M‑20 series com­pris­es a range of ver­sa­tile robots designed to meet the demands of var­i­ous indus­tries. Each mod­el is built with pre­ci­sion engi­neer­ing and advanced tech­nol­o­gy to ensure seam­less inte­gra­tion into man­u­fac­tur­ing process­es. Let’s take a clos­er look at some of the key mod­els with­in this series:

1. Fanuc M‑20iA/​10L

The Fanuc M‑20iA/​10L is known for its excep­tion­al reach and flex­i­bil­i­ty. With a pay­load capac­i­ty of 10 kg (22 lbs) and a reach of 1811 mm (71.3 inch­es), this robot is ide­al for tasks that require extend­ed reach and pre­ci­sion, such as mate­r­i­al han­dling and machine tend­ing. Its ver­sa­til­i­ty makes it a valu­able asset across a wide range of indus­tries, includ­ing auto­mo­tive, elec­tron­ics, and aerospace.

2. Fanuc M‑20iA/​20M

The Fanuc M‑20iA/​20M is renowned for its speed and agili­ty. It boasts a pay­load capac­i­ty of 20 kg (44 lbs) and a reach of 1811 mm (71.3 inch­es). This robot is per­fect­ly suit­ed for appli­ca­tions that demand rapid and pre­cise move­ments, such as pick and place, assem­bly, and pack­ag­ing. Indus­tries like food and bev­er­age, con­sumer goods, and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals ben­e­fit great­ly from its capabilities.

3. Fanuc M‑20iA/​35M

If you need a robot with sub­stan­tial lift­ing pow­er, the Fanuc M‑20iA/​35M should be your choice. With a remark­able pay­load capac­i­ty of 35 kg (77 lbs) and a reach of 1811 mm (71.3 inch­es), it excels in heavy-duty appli­ca­tions such as mate­r­i­al han­dling, weld­ing, and pal­letiz­ing. Indus­tries like auto­mo­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing, met­al fab­ri­ca­tion, and logis­tics rely on its robust performance.

4. Fanuc M‑20iB/​25

The Fanuc M‑20iB/​25 offers a per­fect bal­ance between pay­load and reach. It can han­dle up to 25 kg (55 lbs) and has a reach of 1859 mm (73.2 inch­es). This robot is well-suit­ed for tasks requir­ing both strength and pre­ci­sion, includ­ing arc weld­ing, mate­r­i­al removal, and paint­ing. Indus­tries such as auto­mo­tive, aero­space, and met­al­work­ing find it indispensable.
