Strength and reach all in one robot? That is what you get with the M-2000iA/1700L from FANUC. This robot is one of the strongest long reach robot in the world. While it is rigid enough to lift the heaviest of objects, it also has flexibility and a large work envelope. The M2000iA/1700L is able to lift an entire car body with no problem, and it can do so with graceful, steady motion. This robot is typically used in machine tending, material handling, machine loading, and material removal applications.
The M 2000iA/1700L has a wide work base, with a footprint of 1540mm x 1480mm, which stabilizes it when lifting huge parts and products. The robot is able to remain agile, despite being a heavy lifter, and can work with a high degree of precision, which isn't always easy when lifting large loads. However, these are not the only benefits to the M 2000iA/1700L. By using this heavy lifting robot, manufacturers have more flexibility with material handling, and they can improve their cycle times, while also lowering the possibility of damaging production materials. This also cuts down on waste, saving the manufacturer money. These robots lift like a conventional crane, which allows manufacturers to decrease the amount of equipment needed for production.
Like many FANUC models, the M-2000iA/1700L uses the R-30iB controller. While the M2000iA/1700L comes standard with a stackable, compact R-30iB A-cabinet, it is also available in the larger B-cabinet as well. Both controllers have the iPendant Touch, use less energy than previous controller models, and are able to help enhance the overall productivity of the robot system.
If you are looking for a heavy lifter that is also fairly heavily protected, the M-2000iA/1700L is once again a good choice. The body comes in a standard IP54 protection rating, which means it is protected from dust and splashing water. The J3 axis and wrist have an IP67 rating, which means it is completely dust-proof and can be immersed in water up to 1m.
The M-2000iA/1700L is the long reach, heavy lifting, six-axis robot crane your large part material handling needs. This robot is available as new only.
