140kg robot 'sets palletising standard'

27 April 2010

FANUC Robotics’ latest addition to the M-410i range of palletising robots claims to be the fastest robot in its class performing cycles in less than two seconds

The slimmer arm and wrist design make the 140Kg payload M-410iB/140H the most compact robot in the range.

Performing a standard industry palletising test - moving 400mm up, 2,000mm horizontally and 400mm down - while handling a 60Kgs payload, the new M-410iB/140H performs 1,900 cycles per hour. The speed and compact design make it ideally suited for high capacity production requirements in bag and box palletising.

The articulated design of the M-410i range already makes it ideal for confined areas but the revised design of the new arm makes it even more compact and ideal for areas with low ceilings. A new slimmer forearm and wrist, already proven on the FANUC Robotics R-2000 and M-900 series, is equipped with integrated cableways to speed up system installation and to avoid cable snags and breakages.

The robot can be either floor or plinth mounted to provide a cylindrical work envelope of 5.7Mtr diameter by up to a maximum height of 3.5Mtr. This large work envelope together with its high speed offers significant opportunities for multiple lines to be served in high volume environments by a single M-410i/140H.
