Robot in Focus the iD series

Fanuc’s range of M10ia series robots and M20ia robots have recently been replaced by iD series robots. As many of our customers know, the iA series robots were a very versatile robot and the iD series offers even more features. Today we delve into the migration from iA series to iD series and the differences and applications.

The new iD series robots all have hollow wrists to allow for user cable routing and the motor has been moved from the side to the base of the robot. The J2 arm is now slim and curved to allow the robot to reach over obstacles. There are also mounting provisions available on J3.



The M10id/16s combines all the best things from the two older model robots M10ia/12s and the m10ia/10ms. With its extra high strength, rigidity, these iD series robots are the perfect solution for high speed pick and place applications and material removal. Other applications include ultrasonic welding, secondary food handling and machine tending.



With 40% more payload than its closest competitor in the market at 35kg, the M20id/35 is a superior robot in its class. It also has the longest stroke in its class, more than 200mm more than its nearest competitor. This robot has sustained high speed motion and is used in regular factory environments. Applications for this robot would include bin picking, water jetting, loading/unloading and assembly.

Although Foundry pro configurations are not currently available on all iD series robots yet, Fanuc hope to make this available in the near future. The IP on the axes goes from IP54 to IP 65 and the wrist axis remains at IP67. With epoxy paint, rust resistant fasteners, anti rust spray applied to all unpainted surfaces, this robot is ready to take on almost any job.

Whether you are a large or small manufacturer, if you think the M10iD/16s or M20id/35 might be the right robot to automate your manufacturing process, we invite you to contact Automated Solutions Australia to explore our Fanuc range today on 1800 ROBOTS.
