Fanuc Robotics America’s M-1iA intelligent assembly robot is a six-axis, parallel-link unit. Designed for small-part handling, high-speed picking, and assembly applications, the M-1iA’s parallel-link structure provides higher speeds and accuracy compared to traditional assembly robots. The robot, which can be installed in a variety of orientations, has a three-axis wrist that makes it flexible. The M-1iA also offers a four-axis model for simple assembly operations such as part picking for kitting. A single-axis wrist offers speeds up to 3000° per second. The M-1iA operates with the company’s latest R-30iA controller with integrated intelligent functions such as iRVision, robot link, and collision guard.
