Fanuc M-16iB

Awaiting more stock

Medium payload (20 kg) 6 axis industrial robot. Typically used for handling, extraction of parts from injection machines, machining, etc...

The powerful and user friendly R-30iA control system makes this robot one of the most popular ones in its range.

The FANUC M-16iB is a six-axis, modular construction, electric servo-driven robot designed for a variety of industrial applications. Based on its simple and reliable construction, the FANUC M-16iB with R-30iA controller provides sophisticated motion control and consistent performance with high productivity.
The FANUC M-16iB features:
• Small footprint supports placement in confined areas
• Dust and water resistant design maximizes durability
• Work envelope and position flexibility are eliminated by absolute serial encoders
• Absolute serial encoders dismiss the need for calibration at power-up
• No modification of robot for upright, inverted, angle and wall mounting
• Best axes speeds in its class

Coupled with the state of the art R-30iA controller.

R-30iA features

The R-30iA controller needs less than 1 minute to start (and even less with the basic software only). In case of power failure:
Robot program restarts much quicker than with any PC-based program (non-Windows operating system).
The resume hotstart function allows restarting safely and continuing production after power failure: no need to re-do the whole movement.
Unique resume tolerance check: in case of any program interruption, the robot automatically memorises its position before failure. When the program continues, it checks whether the robot has been moved outside of a preset tolerance. This avoids unexpected movements and collisions.
Increased up-time (robot availability)
Thanks to enhanced hardware and software capacities, the R-30iA controller offers much better robot vibration control. This greatly reduces the robot’s acceleration and deceleration times, leading to reduced cycle times.
The R-30iA controller has an USB interface in the front panel and a PCMCIA interface inside of the control cabinet
2 serial interface connections (RS232C, RS422) available
Printer Connect
Data Transfer (option)
Sensor interface (option)
CRT keyboard (option)
User specific data transfer using KAREL option
This allows fast and economical back-ups and restore of data and programs.
The FANUC iPendant is an intelligent teach pendant and is available as standard (except for PaintTool). Touch screen is available as option.
Access via Ethernet to web sites
Pendant view status of peripheral equipment and other robots‘ html web server pages (when available)
Coloured, multi-windows display
Customizable screen
Easier work with the robot, enhanced productivity.
