The M-1000iA is FANUC’s largest robot to feature a serial link mechanism, rather than the parallel link mechanism typical of most heavy payload robots. As a result, the M-1000iA gives a wider range of motion in both vertical and longitudinal directions. Moreover, a heavy payload rating, high wrist inertia and flip-over capability, make the M-1000iA perfect for all kind of heavy payload material handling applications (e.g. EV battery handling, lifter, etc.). Control comes courtesy of the latest R-30iB Plus, in addition to the conventional iPendant as a teaching device.
