FANUC America (Rochester Hills, Mich.) has expanded its line of 4-axis SCARA robots to now include the SR-3iA, SR-6iA, SR-12iA, and new SR-20iA models with 3-, 6-, 12- and 20-kg payload capacities and a reach range from 400-1100 mm.

Fanuc says the small SR-3iA and SR-6iA SCARAs have a compact footprint, with 3-axis models available for the SR-3iA/H and SR-6iA/H. The higher-payload SR-12iA and SR-20iA have a large vertical stroke, options for operating in harsh conditions and internal cable routing, reducing potential interference.

The six models available include the SR-3iA (4-axis/400-mm reach), SR-3iA/H (3-axis/400-mm reach), SR-6iA (4-axis/650-mm reach), SR-6iA/H (3-axis/650-mm reach), SR-12iA (4-axis/900-mm reach), and the SR-20iA (4-axis/1100-mm reach).


FANUC’s expanded line of SCARA robots includes six models.


  • Molders' Guide to Do-It-Yourself Robot Tooling

    An injection molding robot is no better than its end-of-arm tooling (EOAT). All the potential benefits of robots--increased productivity, quality, and safety, as well as reduced scrap--are influenced by the effectiveness with which the EOAT does its job. End-of-arm tooling may perform tasks as simple as sprue picking and demolding or as advanced as degating, insert loading, parts reorientation, and assembly.
