M-2000iA/900L Auto Body Transfer Robot with M-20iA Seam Seal Application


A pedestal mounted FANUC M-2000iA/900L lifts a car body from an incoming floor conveyor, and moves it to a fixture where four FANUC M-20iA robots will apply sealer.

After the car body has been placed onto the fixture, the FANUC M-20iA robots apply sealer to the under body and wheel wells of the vehicle.

After sealer has been applied, a second floor mounted FANUC M-2000iA lifts the car body from the sealer fixture, rotates it 180 degrees, and places it onto a second fixture. The car is then inspected manually, before being lifted by a third FANUC M-2000iA and placed onto an outgoing floor conveyor.

This array of FANUC M-2000iA resulted in 60% floor space savings over conventional vertical lifters and overhead conveyors along with the reliability of a robot. The flexibility and reliability of the FANUC robots allows for a low maintenance, flexible automation system.
