King of All Robots - FANUC M2000 Arrives at Motion Controls Robotics

Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. (MCRI), Fremont OH - MCRI welcomed a version of the largest robot in the world into its Fremont, OH plant today, the FANUC M2000. MCRI is one of the first FANUC integrators to take receipt of one of these very large robot. Special rigging accommodations had to be made to receive it and set it up in our plant. Stretched out with its massive end of arm tool and payload, the robot measures over 35' in length. It can lift up to 900kg or nearly 2000 pounds - a variation of this robot can lift up to 3500 pounds. The end customer, located in Canada, is eagerly awaiting it to perform its task in a complex roll slitting and packaging operation. The customer selected this robot solution over hard automation because of its proven reliability, flexibility, and relative simplicity.


The FANUC R2000, a much smaller version of the M2000, will keep the M2000 company in the customer's packaging cell. The R2000 will travel on a rail and will place each of the slit rolls from the M2000 onto pallets for shipment to the end customer.
