FANUC America, a supplier of CNCs, robotics, and ROBOMACHINEs has recently introduced the LR Mate 200iD/14L, the tenth model variation of the popular LR Mate series of tabletop industrial robots.  Since the LR Mate series was launched nearly 30 years ago, it has become one of FANUC’s biggest sellers, with over 70,000 units installed across the globe. 

The popularity of the LR Mate robot series is due to FANUC’s world-renowned reliability along with a number of unique features including its lightweight, tabletop size, which is often compared to the size of a person’s arm.  In addition, the LR Mate can process or handle parts weighing up to 14kg in the automotivee-commerce and warehousingfood and beveragemedical devicepharmaceutical, and many other industries.  Ten models include clean room and wash proof versions, each with various wrist speeds and reaches to accommodate even the most limited workspace. 

“Since it was introduced in 1992, the LR Mate robot has been deployed in a variety of traditional manufacturing and service applications. Some of the most interesting things we’ve seen this robot do include serving coffee, fulfilling orders in retail stores, and preparing fast foods,” said Carolyn Chase, product manager, LR Mate robot series, FANUC America.
