Fanuc Robotics America Inc.’s M-710iC/50 SE FoundryPRO robot is designed to operate in harsh manufacturing environments. The entire robot is coated with a special epoxy, and its wrist has protective covers to withstand high-pressure washing. In addition, the base of the robot purges air to avoid vapor entrance. Coated bolts and double oil seals at the joints make it a waterproof robot.
The six-axis robot is the latest member of the M-710iC robot series, which offers payloads ranging from 20 kg to 70 kg and a reach of 1,360 mm to 3,110 mm. Multiple mounting methods including floor, ceiling, angle and wall, make it possible for users to have better access to unusual workpieces. The company says its robot is fast and has a large work envelope. In addition, its compact size and ability to flip over and work behind itself maximizes flexibility for work cell design.
