What makes the Fanuc M6iB/6S move

Oct 14, 2013

Manufacturers are quickly realizing the power of automation, as seen with the Fanuc M-6iB and -6S robot. The Fanuc robot arms are made up of a variety of important parts that helps the robot run smoothly and efficiently on a production line. Robots.com is proud to offer a wide range of parts for robots and is looking forward to serving you.


Indus­tri­al robots have been around in full force since the 1980’s. It was dur­ing that time that man­u­fac­tur­ers real­ized that by automat­ing their process­es like weld­ing, mate­r­i­al han­dling, and mate­r­i­al removal, they could save mon­ey while speed­ing up their appli­ca­tions. One such mod­el was the Fanuc M6iB/​6S. While this robot is effi­cient in its mate­r­i­al han­dling appli­ca­tions, it is the inter­nal parts that crank away year after year to keep pro­duc­tion moving.

The ser­vo­mo­tors found on every axis of the M‑6iB-6S robot, (part num­bers A06B-0202-B605 and A06B-0223-B605) are equipped with ampli­fiers that receive feed­back from all parts of the robot. From this feed­back, the motors can re-adjust and move in a way that works best for the robot’s operation.

Anoth­er impor­tant part of the M 6ib 6S is the group of speed reduc­ers (part num­bers A97L-0218 – 0288 and A97L-0218 – 0361) that are able to work in con­junc­tion with the motors to slow down and redi­rect the motor’s out­put. They send it to the cor­rect area of the robot that needs it, improv­ing the robot’s over­all functionality.

Final­ly is the M6ib6s’ wrist assem­bly, part num­ber A290-7215-T502. With­out this, the robot would essen­tial­ly be use­less. The wrist assem­bly is where the end effec­tor is attached. With­out the wrist, the EOAT can­not be attached to the arm, los­ing the robot’s func­tion intent.

All of these parts are cru­cial to the robot’s func­tion. These parts, includ­ing the robot sys­tem itself, can be pur­chased through Robots​.com vast inven­to­ry. For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Robots​.com today online or at 8777626881.
