Heavy Duty Robots Enter the Ring

Dec 14, 2009

As technology continues to advance, robotic technology continues to improve and also provide bigger robots for those heavy duty jobs. These advancements in 6-axis robot technology were designed so manufacturers could have heavy duty robot solutions to handle things such as auto bodies or tractors. Contact Robots.com experts today to discuss your options for heavy duty robot integration.


Advances in 6‑axis robot tech­nol­o­gy have made it pos­si­ble to build small­er and much, much BIG­GER robots.

Meet the indus­tri­al robot heavy­weights. These burly, heavy duty robots are designed to han­dle the biggest parts — from auto bod­ies to tractors. 

The Giant: Fanuc M‑2000iA
The Fanuc M‑2000iA is so gigan­tic it almost deserves a weight class of its own. This super heavy duty robot is avail­able in two ver­sions: M‑2000iA/​900L and M‑2000iA/​1200. The world’s largest and most pow­er­ful 6‑axis robot, the M‑2000iA has an IP67 pro­tect­ed wrist, and is con­trolled by an advanced R‑30iA.

The Enter­tain­er: KUKA KR1000
The KUKA KR 1000 Titan can hoist up to 1000kg. This heavy duty robot reach­es a full 3202mm hor­i­zon­tal­ly and 5000mm ver­ti­cal­ly. In addi­tion to its many heavy duty indus­tri­al uses, the KUKA KR1000 is also at the cen­ter of Dis­ney’s Epcot KUKA new Robo­coast­er ride: Sum of all Thrills.”

The Pow­er­ful: ABB IRB 7600
Meet every chal­lenge with the tough ABB IRB 7600 robot mod­el. This heavy duty robot attacks jobs with a 630kg pay­load capac­i­ty. Avail­able in a cou­ple dif­fer­ent ver­sions, the ABB IRB 7600 offers excep­tion­al flex­i­bil­i­ty and a vari­ety of arm lengths. 

Tough: Motoman Heavy Pay­load
Motomans three HP (Heavy Pay­load) mod­els pro­vide still more options for mate­r­i­al han­dling, machine tend­ing, and die cast robot­ic needs. The HP350D, HP500D, and HP600D accom­mo­date a range of pay­load and reach requirements.
