T he R-2000iB multi-purpose intelligent robot is designed for assembly, part transfer, material removal, and machine loading. The R-2000iB is compatible with its predecessor, the R-2000iA six-axis robot, with the same workspace, installation, mounting interface, operation, and robot programming?making it easy to replace the R-2000iA with the R-2000iB.
The robot is supported by the R-J3iC control and features enhanced intelligent functions and motion performance. Model variations include a 165-kg base model, a high payload version, and a rack-mount model. A slim arm and wrist assembly helps minimize interference with system equipment and allows the robot to operate in small workspaces. A vibration control function is said to nearly eliminate robot vibration during motion, allowing the robot to accelerate and decelerate very quickly, reducing cycle time by approximately 5% compared to current robot models.
