is the 125L version of the R-2000iA. This has a longer reach of 3001mm and a
reduced payload of 125kg. This makes the 125L ideal for palletising and
handling applications where the extra reach is needed. In fact the 125L has one
of the largest work envelopes in its class.
Fanuc R-2000iA with R-J3iB industrial robot with R-J3iB controller is a standard
car industry robot used by automotive companies worldwide. The R-2000iA has
several variants making it suited to a wide range of applications not only in
the automotive industry but in many other industries too.
R-2000iA has a very compact configuration which means that it can fit where many
physically bigger robots would not. Yet the R-2000iA has industry leading
payload capacity, reach and is among the fastest robot arms in its class. This
makes the R-2000iA very useful in many applications such as press tending,
injection moulding and die casting where the ability to fit in confined spaces
is important. The narrow wrist design also helps in this regard. The wrist axis
are driven by motors placed at the back of the arm and are driven through
drive-shafts. This design allows the wrist unit to be as compact as possible
and also helps with the overall balance and weight distribution of the arm. The
wrist of the R-2000iA has an IP rating of IP67 and the rest of the arm is IP54.
lower arm is single sided; this allows the robot to “flip over” and work behind
itself. Again this allows the R-2000iA to be useful in more applications than
earlier generations of robot using a parallel arm design. Overall the arm is
light, fast and compact without compromising on reach or payload.
in a car plant, the R-2000iA would be used mostly for spot welding and part
handling. However, these are very simple applications for what is a very
capable machine. Sealing and gluing applications as well as grinding,
de-burring, finishing and polishing are all well within capabilities. Other
tasks include inspection, testing, MIG, TIG and laser welding, handling,
palletising, machine tending; essentially this is a very multipurpose robot
R-2000iA comes with the Fanuc R-J3iB controller. Benefits of the R-J3iB include
fast boot up time, excellent connectivity, powerful programming language, built
in safety circuits, expandable I/O and bus options. The R-J3iB is also
recognised as being very stable and reliable.
There are several
varieties of R-2000iA the three most common types are:
R-2000iA/165F – The
standard 165kg payload arm
R-2000iA/210F – The
heavy-duty 210kg payload arm
R-2000iA/125L – Long
arm version giving extra reach
These are rare arm
types that we sometimes see at Global Robots:
Usually mounted on a pedestal above the work area
Heavy-duty pedestal robot
Ultra compact short arm version
R-2000iA/200FO – 200kg
payload “Forward Option”
Pedestal mounting 3500mm reach for press tending
R-2000iA/130U - Ceiling
mounted hanging robot
At Global Robots we
clean and test each robot. Depending on condition we also repaint the arms.
Testing is done in both manual and auto. We also change any lubricants required
and change the batteries.
