Are you looking for a robot that can lift products that weigh more than 5000 pounds? If so, then you should look no further than the FANUC M-2000iA/2300. This robot is the strongest lifter in the FANUC family, with a payload capacity to lift 2.3 metric tons of product -- meaning it could easily lift an entire car and move it to a different area on the factory floor.
Like other members of the FANUC M-2000 family, the M2000iA/2300 is able to perform a wide range of material handling applications, including machine tending, part transfer, machine loading, etc. It can also be used in material removal applications. The robot also gives manufacturers more flexibility in their handling applications. Something that may have been impossible to lift by manual workers, can now be lifted and moved with swift and easy motion by one robot. This can not only improve cycle times for a company, but it can also reduce the possibility of something damaging the product. The steady motion of the robot, with its low vibrations, mean that the jerking movements of cranes or other lifters are things of the past. The low noise level and moderate power consumption (8kW) are also benefits that the M-2000iA/2300 bring to the table.
The M 2000iA/2300 also sports a pretty impressive protection rating. The IP54 (IP56 optional) rating means that the robot body is splash-proof and dust-proof, while the wrist and J3 axis are able to withstand even more dust or water with an IP67 rating. This means that the wrist can be immersed in water up to 1m, without malfunctioning. By choosing the IP56 rating for the body of the robot, manufacturers can use low pressure water jets for cleaning.
While the footprint of the massive M-2000iA/2300 may take up some space (1540mmX1480mm), its controller does not. The robot comes with an A-cabinet model of the R-30iB controller, which means it is compact and stackable, which saves the manufacturer some room. It can even be placed under existing structures on the factory floor, like conveyors. The controller is also available in the larger B-cabinet upon request.
If you need a robot that can lift over two metric tons over and over again, with a high rate of repeatability and reliability, then the M-2000iA/2300 might be just the robot for you. This robot is available as new only.
