Lightweight, compact intelligent robot demonstrates speed, flexibility

FANUC Robotics exhibits its new M-1iA parallel-link robot at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2009 picking and placing small objects with accuracy.

The M-1iA is a lightweight and compact four- or six-axis, parallel-link robot designed for small part handling, high-speed picking, and assembly applications. The unique parallel-link structure provides higher speeds and accuracy compared to traditional assembly robots, the company says. The robot can be installed in a variety of orientations, and has a single- or three-axis wrist, for flexibility. The M-1iA operates with the company's latest R-30iA controller, with integrated intelligent functions such as iRVision®, Robot Link, and Collision Guard.
