Hollow-armed robot allows for cable integration

27 January 2020

FANUC has made improvements to its R-2000 series robot with the introduction of the hollow-armed R-2000iD.

Capable of integrating cables into its hollow structure, the R-2000iD is suited to use in applications that require process cables, such as spot welding or material handling applications. This is said to help reduce maintenance costs by minimising the physical strain on the cables, and preventing interference with system equipment.
Although the cables are entirely incorporated into the hollow arm and wrist, a number of strategic openings allow for easy access to replace or maintain cables through wider openings along the arm itself, while an optional bracket flange allows compatibility even without a hollow hand design.

The R-2000iD comes in two models – the R-2000iD/165FH, which has a maximum load capacity of 165kg, and the R-2000iD/210FH, with a maximum load capacity of 210kg. Both have a reach of 2605mm, with similar dimensions to its predecessor. Crucially, however, the overall footprint is smaller, taking up just 678x536mm.
