FANUC, a global provider of factory automation and industrial robotics, has broken its own record launching the world’s strongest robot at this year’s EMO manufacturing trade show.

The M-2000iA/2300 can lift a staggering 2.3 metric tonnes and has a powerful IP67 wrist, enabling the robot to twist and turn entire car bodies by their side. The robot can reach over 3.7 metres and has a 6-Axis to handle extreme heavyweight materials.

The M-2000iA/2300 operates within a variety of industries, performing both simple and complex tasks. In particular, its power and range make it ideal for the automotive industry and forgeries. The M-2000iA/2300’s accuracy and flexibility of control also lowers the risk of damage to production material, while reducing running costs and increasing speed of production.

Tom Bouchier, Managing Director at FANUC UK commented, “To be known as the company that has produced the strongest robot in the world isn’t just about setting new records. We are continuing to push the boundaries of what is possible to provide a greater level of service for our customers. The robot is not only the strongest in the world but it is intelligent and agile, bringing increased flexibility and productivity to the production line, as well as increasing safety and improving the welfare of employees.”
