A robot with a washproof rating can be a great asset to a variety of industries, from those dealing with metals and electronics, to those dealing with food and pharmaceuticals. The FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7WP may be just the wash-proof robot you're looking for. This robot is able to perform multiple robot applications, including handling, material removal, and small part assembly.
Why is this robot ideal, especially in the food and pharmaceutical industries? This robot has an IP67 rating standard, with an IP69k option as well, which means that the robot is dust-proof, but it can also handle immersion in water up to 1m, and it can handle high pressure cleaning from steam jets. This type of cleaning is important for robots like the LR Mate 200iD/7WP, especially when being used in food and pharmaceutical environments, as mentioned above.
The FANUC LRMate 200iD/7WP also offers manufacturers the flexibility they've been looking for with floor, ceiling, wall, or angled mounting. This allows the manufacturer to more easily integrate the robot into an existing system. Other benefits include low power consumption, smaller footprints, and a lower acoustic sound level. This robot comes standard with an R-30iB mate controller with an iPendant Touch pendant.
If you need a compact, tabletop robot to get these jobs done, the LR Mate 200iD/7WP may be perfect for your facility.
