Q Corporation, will showcase the new Fanuc M-1ia Robot in Booth #937-938 at the upcoming Wichita Industrial Trade Show, scheduled to take place October 18-20, 2011 at the Century II Building in Wichita, Kansas. The M-1ia is a lightweight, compact robot designed for small part handling, high-speed picking and assembly applications.
The unique parallel-link structure of the M-1ia provides higher speeds and accuracy compared to traditional assembly robots. The system is available in two models (4- or 6-axis) for a variety of applications and can be installed in multiple orientations. Additionally, the system is available in three configurations including robot only (no stand), desktop mount with stand, and ceiling and angle mounting. The Fanuc M-1ia like the one shown also can be mounted to Q Corporation’s taping equipment for fast, accurate component placement.
The M-1ia 4-axis design enables part feeding from the sides of a work zone, increasing the useable workspace. The powerful R-30iA Mate rack-style controller provides intelligent robot functions with a compact controller footprint. Additionally, the detachable color-graphic iPendant or monochrome pendant can be shared between multiple robots on the same assembly line.
