FANUC America Corporation ( features an LR Mate 200iD mini-robot and the Power Motion i-MODEL A motion controller for high performance, multi-axes general motion applications at Automate, Booth #660 & Promat, Booth #3653, March 23-26, 2015, Chicago, IL. 

LR Mate 200iD robots

The family of LR Mate 200iD robots is a versatile solution for a wide range of manufacturing operations that require access into small spaces.  A very slim arm about the same size as a human arm, and a bottom cable exit option minimize interference with peripheral devices.  The LR Mate 200iD robots offer a “best in class” work envelope for both upright and invert mount installations. The LR Mate 200iD robots are also available with ISO Class 4 clean-room and food-grade variants for food handling and healthcare packaging applications.  LR Mate 200iD features & benefits include:

  • *Slim arm and compact foot print minimizes interference to peripheral devices in narrow spaces.
  • Four to seven kg wrist load capacity with six-axis articulation.
  • Best in class work envelope simplifies system layout.
  • Fastest joint axes speeds maximize system throughput.
  • Integrated 24VDC power, signal and air for easy end-of-arm-tool connection.
  • Integrated thru-arm cable option for iRVision, force sensing, Ethernet and auxiliary axes.
  • Flexible mounting (upright, invert, angle).
  • High rigidity and the most advanced servo technology enable smooth motion at high speeds.
  • Easy integration into machines.
  • Features lightest mechanical unit in its class.
  • IP67 rating allows operation in factory environments with dust and oil mist.
  • New LR Mate 200iD/4SC clean-room model is ISO Class 4 (Class 10) clean-room certified for electronics, pharmaceutical and food applications.  It features a white FDA compliant coating, stainless steel wrist, *NSF-H1 grade grease on all joints to provide reliable performance in demanding production environments, including rigorous sanitation procedures.

Power Motion i-MODEL A Motion Controller

The Power Motion i-MODEL A motion controller is an integrated motion solution scalable from 1 to 32 axes of high performance motion control while also capable of 4 axes simultaneous interpolation.  Included standard is a high speed PLC that supports all major industrial Ethernet networks and 2048 discrete input and 2048 outputs.  The Power Motion i-MODEL A includes standard screens for setup, operation and maintenance.  PLC and standard ISO G-code motion programming are both supported as basic features.  This provides full featured, integrated motion architecture at a competitive cost for single and multi-axis applications that will benefit from FANUC’s legendary reliability and performance delivering the lowest total cost of ownership.  A wide range of easily customizable HMI solutions including standard panel mount LCD screens and the iPendant, a hand-held portable multi-function HMI, are available to meet the most demanding needs. 

Power Motion i-MODEL A & LR Mate 200iD demo at Automate

 See the Power Motion i-MODEL A at Automate, Booth #660 where it will be integrated with an LR Mate 200iD robot. It will be demonstrating multi-process & multi-axis functionality integrating high-level motion features including: pre-processed motion commands using high-speed response function and a servo driven press using pressure & position control.  The robot will perform a part transfer from one station to another demonstrating load/unload of the press.  Additionally, using the robot connection function will demonstrate simple system connectivity, including sharing of screens, between the Power Motion i-A motion controller and the LR Mate 200iD robot.  In the Güdel Booth #532 at Automate, the Power Motion i-A will also be demonstrating a gantry motion control application.
