Compact palletising robot completes a cycle in less than two seconds
30 April 2010
The latest addition to the Fanuc Robotics M-410i range of palletising robots is claimed to be the fastest robot in its class, performing complete cycles in less than two seconds. The slimmer arm and wrist design make the 140kg payload M-410iB/140H the most compact robot in the range. Performing a standard industry palletising test - moving 400mm up, 2,000mm horizontally and 400mm down - while handling a 60kg payload, the new robot performs 1,900 cycles per hour.
The articulated design of the M-410i range is suitable for confined areas; however, the revised arm design means it can be used in areas with low ceilings. A new slimmer forearm and wrist, already proven on the Fanuc Robotics R-2000 and M-900 series, is equipped with integrated cableways to speed up system installation and to avoid cable snags and breakages.
The robot can be either floor or plinth mounted to provide a cylindrical work envelope of 5.7m diameter by up to a maximum height of 3.5m. This large work envelope together with its high speed offers significant opportunities for multiple lines to be served in high volume environments by a single M-410i/140H.
