Rochester Hills, Michigan – FANUC’s compact, lightweight selective compliance assembly robot arm (SCARA) robots feature high-speed, precise operation for pick and place, assembly, testing/inspection, and packaging processes in a wide range of industries.

The SR-3iA offers a 3kg payload, 400mm reach, and 200mm stroke, and the SR-6iA has a 6kg payload, 650mm reach, and 210mm stroke.

Powered by the new R-30iB Compact Plus controller, the new SCARA robots offer the same intelligence and reliability available on all FANUC robots, including integrated iRVision, force sensing, conveyor tracking, fieldbus connectivity, integrated safety, and most other software options. FANUC’s new SCARA iRProgrammer software interface is easy to use for programming with tablets or PCs, and can be accessed via a web browser.

Additional features
