29 November 2019

FANUC UK has delivered model from its strongest ever robot series to neighbouring research and technology organisation, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), in Coventry.

The six-axis FANUC M-2000iA/2300 was delivered to the facility earlier this year and is now fully operational. With a reach of 3.7m and vertical lifting stroke of 6.2m, it is the provides a solution for handling and palletising heavy parts, such as automotive chassis and foundry workpieces, up to 2.3 tonnes in weight. 

The robot will play a role in the MTC’s ongoing work with the Construction Innovation Hub, and will be used as part of research into large volumetric assembly within the construction industry. The extensive reach of the robot makes it suitable for handling ultra-heavy workpieces and it can also be used for conventional crane, hoist and shuttle applications to increase output and eliminate potentially dangerous manual work.
