High-speed pharmaceutical sector robot offers six axes

10 June 2009

A new high-speed robot, designed for the pharmaceutical industry, has been introduced by Fanuc Robotics. Suitable for packing and picking operations the arm is suitable for hygienic process areas where intensive cleaning is routinely carried out. The M-430iA/2P is sealed to IP67 and double seals on the major axes not only keep fluids out but ensure that grease and contaminants stay within the durable casings. Two of the joints use nylon gears and do not require any lubrication.

The robot arm’s high gloss finish gives a smooth surface and has been extensively proof tested against acid and alkaline cleaners commonly used for daily sanitising wash-down. All cables and pneumatic supplies to end of arm tooling are internally routed through the M430iA/2P to further prevent contamination.

With a reach of 700mm, the six-axis arm provides a high degree of flexibility for horizontal or vertical product picking and placement. Its anthropomorphic arm design provides a large work envelope that allows it to quickly rotate or flip back on itself, if required, to cover an area of up to1.4m diameter. The arm can be vertically mounted, providing clear access when machine maintenance is required, or base mounted.
