The FANUC M-6iB/6S is a short arm for tight, confined spaces. The robotic arm of the M6iB/6S RJ3iB is used to treat products where parts sizes and envelopes are of little concern. The M 6iB/6S can perform acute, lightweight material handling with a repeatability of +/- 0.08 mm and a maximum payload capacity of 6 kilograms.
The FANUC M-6iB 6S robot was produced in Japan in 2006. Equipped with the R-J3iB controller from the FANUC system, this 6-axis robot has ideal conditions because its working times are very short.
The M-420iA and M-6iB/2HS robots with Fanuc V-500iA/2DV vision software as well as line tracks were designed to be flexible and speedy. Fanuc’s V-500iA/2DV vision is used by the M-420iA robot to demonstrate the benefits of a visual line tracking device to randomly select three segments of a moving conveyor. Visual line monitoring offers flexibility for many goods to be handled on the same automation line, reduces time changes, and eliminates the need for expensive equipment. The robot M6iB/2HS uses line tracking to select pieces one at a time, and position every piece in a chute. The parts are dropping from the chute back onto the conveyor at random orientations and locations.
