Fanuc releases robot for heavy products

Fanuc America Corp. introduced the new M-1000iA robot capable of handling heavy products, including automotive components, construction materials and battery packs for electric vehicles. The robot’s serial link construction gives the robot a wider range of motion in every direction. It can extend its arm upright or rotate it backwards, which is not possible for typical heavy-payload robots with a parallel link mechanism. With a 1,000-kg payload, a 3,253-mm horizontal reach and a 4,297-mm vertical reach, the robot is ready for manufacturers looking to increase output and maximize their production line’s efficiency.
