Food-friendly robot

14 January 2018

FANUC UK has launched a new robot for cleanroom and food-handling environments.

The M20iB/25C has been specifically designed to ISO Class 5 standards, bringing automated picking, packing and handling to applications for which hygiene and cleanliness are paramount. Cables and motors are enclosed in the body of the robot, making it suitable for full wash-downs with cleaning agents. The robot’s white colour also reveals dirt or debris clearly. The robot has an epoxy paint finish that meets FDA standard 21CFR 175.300.

Additional features include axes that use food-grade grease, such as NSF H1, and bolted user taps to prevent the accumulation of water in the tap holes.

The robot’s slim arm design, which prevents it from interfering with peripheral devices, has a maximum payload capacity of 25kg, and a reach of 1,853mm.
