FANUC's M-1000iA robot

Heavy-Payload Robot Improves Reach, Output

Feb. 14, 2022
FANUC's new offering can handle very heavy products with a wider range of motion.

The M-1000iA robot is capable of handling very heavy products, including automotive components, construction materials and battery packs for electric vehicles. The M-1000iA’s serial-link construction gives the robot a wider range of motion in every direction. It can extend its arm upright or rotate it backwards, which is not possible for typical heavy-payload robots with a parallel-link mechanism.

With a 1000 kg payload, a 3,253 mm horizontal reach and a 4,297 mm vertical reach the M-1000iA is ready to go to work for manufacturers looking to increase output and maximize their production line’s efficiency.
