The evolutionary design of the M-20iA
solves two of the oldest problems for industrial robots. The first issue
is the time it takes to engineer the robot dress out and the second is the
down-time caused when the dress out is disrupted by contact with plant
equipment. The innovative M-20iA
solves these issues with a hollow upper arm and wrist. This unique
design permits the utilities to be neatly contained within the arm,
eliminating dress out issues like snagging, tearing and rubbing. A shelf
with ample space on the back of the upper arm completes the package by
allowing peripheral equipment to be easily mounted. The hollow arm and
wrist together with the shelf greatly simplifies the integration
engineers job. To complement the built-in vision, the M-20iA
has an integrated vision cable from the J1 base to J3 interface panel.
This makes the addition of vision to the robot application much easier.
This design is also a great benefit for offline simulations because the
dress out and control boxes can all be designed to fit with in the
confined space of the robot arm and eliminates the guess work of dress
out interference. This exceptional design comes with out sacrificing any
of the robot’s performance specifications. In fact this robot is an
industry leader in payload, reach and axes speed. Add this to the
industry leader in reliability and this robot is the perfect solution
for your robotic application.
