FANUC M20iA Series Robot

With a payload up to 20 kg (44 pounds), the M20iA series is best in its class when it comes to payload, reach, and axes speed. The utilities for the M20iA are found in the hollow arm to eliminate dressout issues and provide longer cable life. The M20iA series also offers a convenient shelf on top of the arm for peripheral devices. All this, along with the built in vision, simplifies maintenance and integration of the robot.
This 6 axis robot is small enough to work in a very tight footprint and can be mounted to the floor, angle, wall or ceiling. The M20iA comes standard with pneumatic and electrical connections for end of arm tooling options.

FANUC America recommends using the M20ia series for robotic applications such as:

Material handlingMachine load/unload
Material removalWaterjet and Laser cutting
Machine tendingPicking and packing
