Robot Slims Down & Speeds Up
14 March 2013
More compact, faster, and with an increased payload and a larger work envelope, the latest version of Fanuc’s LRMate 200 robot is claimed to be ideally suited to integration in special purpose machinery.
Weighing in at an overall 25kg the new LRMate is 2kg less than its predecessor and, combined with a reduction in arm width of 15mm,the compact unit provides a cost- effective handling or transfer solution for machine and system builders.
The six axes LRMate 200iD has an increased payload, up from 5kg to 7kg with an uprated wrist assembly making longer tool offsets possible. Increased joint speeds on every axes of up to 25%, together with wrist moment and wrist inertia improvements, have resulted in the LRMate 200iD being able to perform the industry standard bench test with 1kg payload 35% faster at .32sec or 187.5 cycles per min.
Installation and access with the new arm is improved by the slim design and increased work envelope; reach is increased both horizontally and vertically.
