A compact, lightweight design provides significant space savings. The SR-3iA offers a 3 kg payload, 400 mm reach, and 200 mm stroke, and the SR-6iA has a 6 kg payload, 650 mm reach and 210 mm stroke.

Powered by the new R-30iB Compact Plus controller, the new SCARA robots offer the same intelligence and reliability available on all FANUC robots, including integrated iRVision, force sensing, conveyor tracking, fieldbus connectivity, integrated safety, and most other software options. FANUC’s new SCARA iRProgrammer software interface is easy to use for programming with Tablets or PCs, and can be accessed via a Web browser.

Features and benefits include:

  • Ultra-compact footprint and slim profile minimizes interference with peripheral devices.
  • Lightweight design enables easy system integration and continuous fast operation.
  • High inertia capacity maximizes flexibility to handle large work pieces.
  • Generous vertical stroke makes it possible to perform assembly, packaging and handling operations.
  • Bottom cable exit (optional) provides cable protection, and saves valuable floor space for higher efficiency.
  • Integral air lines, 24VDC power and I/O signal cables, and solenoid valves (optional) simplify system integration and reduce overall cost.
  • Brake release switch on the robot’s arm allows easy error recovery.
  • New high-performance R-30iB Compact Plus controller requires minimal space and allows layout and installation flexibility.
  • New web-based iRProgrammer user interface for intuitive and easy robot setup and programming on a Tablet or PC (Teach pendant is optional).
  • Standard CE/NRTL compliance on the R-30iB Compact Plus controller allows global deployment without any additional cost.
  • Same high performance intelligent software options across the entire FANUC robot line, including iRVision (Integrated Vision), force sensing, conveyor tracking, fieldbus connectivity and integrated safety.
