Basic Description
FANUC Robotics' M-900iA series robot is engineered for precision, high-speed/high payload operation, user-friendly setup and maximum reliability supported by our extensive service and parts network. The M-900iA series represents our advanced evolution of the company's rugged S-900iB series of heavy payload robots. The M-900iA series is a six-axis, modular construction, electric servo-driven family of robots designed for a variety of manufacturing and systems processes.








M900iA Series, the Solution for: Material handling Machine load/unload Heavy duty spot welding Large sheet or panel handling Glass handling Casting operations
Material removal Benefits Rugged wrist design performs reliably even in the harshest manufacturing environments. Small robot footprint and reduced controller size conserve floor space. Slim arm and wrist assemblies minimize interference with system peripherals and allow operation in confined spaces. "Best in class" wrist moments and inertia meet a variety of heavy handling challenges. Many process attachment points make integration easier. Stationary outer arm simplifies hose and cable dressout, prolongs service life.
Proven, reliable FANUC servo drives provide highest uptime and productivity.
 Invert mount installation is possible on the M-900iN350 & M-900iN260Ll where space is a big concern.
 Longer maintenance intervals :i equate to lower operating costs.

 Robust mechanical design reduces down time, increases mean time between failure (MTBF) and minimizes spare part requirements.
 High performance motion yields fast cycle times and high throughput.
