Compact robots for general-purpose applicationsCoventry-based Fanuc UK Ltd ( has launched a new generation of compact general-purpose robots that are suited to smaller, narrow workspaces and top-mount applications.

The M10iD/12, which is the latest model from Fanuc’s M-10 robot series, provides a slim easy-to-install robot solution for factories and production lines — particularly those with limited floor space.

Particular features of the new model include its hollow arm, wrist and body, allowing cables and hose packs to be routed internally.

This makes the robot easy to integrate and modify; it also reduces any disruption to peripheral devices and equipment.

The M10iD/12 has six axes and a maximum payload of 12kg. Fanuc says it offers the highest axis speeds and precision in its class — a maximum speed of 720deg/sec and a repeatability of ±0.02mm.

Compared to preceding models, the body is about 15% more rigid.

The M10iD/12 supports all ‘intelligent’ Fanuc functions and software, including iRVision, Dual Check Safety and Zero Down Time.

Be seen in all the right places!
