FANUC America (Rochester Hills, MI) and ROBOMACHINEs introduced the M-1000iA robot capable of handling very heavy products including automotive components, construction materials and battery packs for electric vehicles.

The M-1000iA’s serial-link construction gives the robot a wider range of motion in every direction. It can extend its arm upright or rotate it backwards, which is not possible for typical heavy-payload robots with a parallel-link mechanism.

It has a 1000 kg payload, a 3,253 mm horizontal reach and a 4,297 mm vertical reach.

Powered by the FANUC R-30iB Plus Controller, the M-1000iA offers the same intelligence and reliability that FANUC robots are known for, including integrated iRVision, force sensing and Zero Down Time (ZDT).
