FANUC strengthens compact industrial robot offering

FANUC has expanded its LR Mate series of multi-purpose industrial robots with the introduction of the strong yet compact LR Mate 200iD/14L

FANUC has introduced a new 6-axis robot. The new LR Mate 200iD/14L benefits from what the company refers to as "an exceptional weight-to-payload ratio", weighing just 27kg but able to handle workpieces of up to 14kg. By doubling the maximum load capacity in comparison to its predecessors, the LR Mate 200iD/14L is able to support a range of high-productivity applications. Its slim and compact design means the improved capacity of the LR Mate 200iD/14L is achieved without impingeing on factory floorspace. In an industry where space is often limited, a footprint of 190mm2 is a vital asset for manufacturer productivity. 

The new LR Mate 200iD/14L avoids a number of common issues associated with introducing automation into manufacturing facilities, such as snagging or the interference of gripper supply equipment, by integrating services into the arm itself. This further reduces the overall footprint, and helps to prevent accidental damage to both the robot and surrounding equipment.  The new robot is IP67 protected as standard, which enables the 200iD/14L to operate in areas of high humidity, and saves on the cost of additional expensive protection equipment.
