The M-3iA robot is designed to maximize speed and flexibility for assembly, small part handling and picking applications. Available in a four- or six-axis model, the robot is equipped with parallel-link structure, and can accommodate payloads as heavy as 6 kg. It has a work envelope of 1,350 × 500 mm.
The six-axis model has a three-axis wrist for complex assembly tasks. The flexibility offered by this wrist enables the robot to pick up and insert parts at varying angles and twist parts into place, similar to the flexibility offered by a manual operator, the company says.
The four-axis robot has a single-axis wrist for simple assembly and picking operations, offering speeds ranging to 4,000 degrees per second. The hollow wrist enables hoses and cables to be routed internally, minimizing wear and tear on the tooling cables.
The company says the robot is equipped for both simple and complex assembly of electronics, medical devices and solar panels. It operates with the latest R-30iA controller, using integrated intelligent functions such as iRVision, Force Sensing, Robot Link and Collision Guard.
