FANUC M1000iA 400x275

FANUC America has announced the M-1000iA robot, which can handle heavy products such as automotive components, construction materials and battery packs for electric vehicles. The robot is its largest serial-link robot to date, with a 1,000 kg payload, a 3,253 mm horizontal reach, and 4,297 mm vertical reach. Production units are expected to ship in Q1 2022.

“Customers that process very heavy parts need more versatility in the workspace,” said Eric Potter, general manager of FANUC America’s general industries and automotive segment. “This robot is a great solution for a variety of applications such as drilling and handling large automotive components, processing and handling battery packs for electric vehicles, fabrication and handling of construction materials, and much more.”

Robotics Market: Materials Handling


AutoStore R5 plus400x275Norway-based AutoStore has announced the global availability of its R5+ Robot, which will enable warehouses to manage larger items within the AutoStore system. The R5+ can handle bins up to 425 mm, the tallest bins available from AutoStore. Until now, this size was a premium feature available only to AutoStore B1 Robot installations, the company said.

AutoStore said the new R5+ opens up several markets for the company, such as footwear, semiconductors, and other similar applications. The maximum grid height for AutoStore customers using the R5+ with 425 mm bins will be slightly higher than a grid using 330 mm bins, creating a grid composed of 14 layers of bins at about 6,044 mm tall (about 19 feet).
