Like other members of the FANUC M-2000 family, the M2000iA/2300 is able to perform a wide range of material handling applications, including machine tending, part transfer, machine loading, etc. The robot also gives manufacturers more flexibility in their handling applications. Something that may have been impossible to lift by manual workers, can now be lifted and moved with swift and easy motion by one robot. This can not only improve cycle times for a company, but it can also reduce the possibility of something damaging the product.
The M 2000iA/2300 also sports a pretty impressive protection rating. The IP54 (IP56 optional) rating means that the robot body is dust-proof, while the wrist and J3 axis are able to withstand even more dust or water with an IP67 rating.
While the footprint of the massive M-2000iA/2300 may take up some space (1540mmX1480mm), its controller does not. The robot comes with an A-cabinet model of the R-30iB controller, which means it is compact and stackable, which saves the manufacturer some room. The controller is also available in the larger B-cabinet upon request.
