If you’re looking for one of the strongest gantry robots on the market, then you’ve found it. The Fanuc M‑20iA/35MT is a robot with high wrist inertia and maximum versatility in motion and applications. While this robot is typically used for applications that involve multiple machines and need a larger work envelope, like machine tending, it can be used for a variety of material handling, welding, and dispensing applications.
The M20iA/35MT will not only give you versatility when it comes to motion and applications, it will also give you versatility when it comes to floor space. Because the robot is an inverted, gantry model, it is able to move along the production line, instead of being bolted into one spot in the floor, allowing it to not only have access to its station, but also other stations, or end-of-line tasks.
The design of the M 20iA/35MT shows another advantage to the robot — a hollow wrist design. This means that cables for the robot are routed through the arm, instead of outside it, which means there is less swing and snag during operation. Plus, by routing the cables and hoses through the arm, wear and tear decreases, saving you money over the life of your robot.
As if all this wasn’t enough, the Fanuc M20iA/35MT body and arm have an IP rating of 54, which means it is dust-protected and protected from splashing water in any direction. But that’s not all, the wrist and J3 axis have an IP67 rating, kicking protection up a notch. This means the wrist and J3 axis are completely protected from dust, and they can survive immersion in water up to 1m. This means the M 20iA/35MT can work in even the dirtiest of conditions and run efficiently.
Equipped with an R‑30iB compact cabinet, with the option to purchase the larger B‑cabinet, and an iPendant touch, the M‑20iA/35MT is one of the most intelligent, versatile, and strongest gantries in the Fanuc line.
