The latest addition to the M-410i range of palletising robots from Fanuc Robotics is said to perform cycles in less than two seconds.

The slimmer arm and wrist design makes 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 60kg payload, the new M-410iB/140H performs 1,900 cycles per hour.

As such, the robot is suitable for high-capacity production requirements in bag and box palletising.

The articulated design of the M-410i range already makes it suitable for confined areas, but the revised design of the new arm makes it even more compact and ideal for areas with low ceilings, according to the company.

The slimmer forearm/wrist 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 in diameter by a maximum height of 3.5Mtr.

Thanks to this large work envelope, a single M-410i/140H can serve multiple lines in high-volume environments.

FANUC UK provides industrial automation solutions ranging from the supply of CNC controllers, robots, drilling machines, EDM and injection moulding machines through to the complete integration of factory automation systems.

Providing a single customer support portal for its three core businesses, FANUC comprises FA — CNC controllers, motors and drives; robotics — industrial robots and systems; robomachines — EDM, injection moulding and drilling machines.

CNC

FANUC’s FA business manufactures CNC controls, drive systems and laser systems. With a 65 per cent market share in the global CNC control sector, FANUC is the market leader. FANUC CNC is the controller of choice for the world’s leading machine tool manufacturers; continuously developing functionality sees FANUC CNC control being used in a wide range of applications — combining powerful control and high precision with unparalleled reliability.

FANUC servo drives and motors are well proven — aimed at the machine builder, they offer the widest range of high-performance compact designs.  The high availability and ease of maintenance together with world-class, energy-efficient designs make them the motors of choice for thousands of OEMs around the world.

Robotics 

FANUC’s robotics business manufactures the widest range of robots in the world for applications from micro-electronics assembly to the forging of precision aerofoils for jet engines — in industries as diverse as pharmaceutical and potato processing — and with maximum payloads from 1kg to 1,350kg. More than 280,000 FANUC robots are operating worldwide, with production currently geared to meet demands of 5,000 per month. FANUC robots are truly ‘out-of-the-box’ automation designed to be totally flexible and, with application-specific options, straightforward to integrate.

Robomachine

FANUC’s robomachine business manufactures Robodrill machining centres, Robocut EDM machines and Roboshot electric injection-moulding machines. Using FANUC components throughout, the robomachine business builds on the advanced technology, reliability, energy efficiency and innovation of its own controllers, drives and motors. With a focus on energy efficiency and high reliability, the robomachine business developed the first all-electric injection-moulding machines — Roboshot — changing the mould shop into a much cleaner and quieter environment.

Customer support

From initial sales contact with FANUC through the life of the product, FANUC provides one single contact point to make sure support is always at hand with up-to-date advice, genuine warranted parts and, whenever possible, obsolescence avoidance solutions that ensure the lifetime delivery of maximum efficiency.
