Product Features

MELFA pruduct features

Evolved intelligence realizes advances in work procedures, cooperation between people and robots, and e-F@ctory-compatibility, making next-generation manufacturing a reality.

With globalization and increasingly diverse consumer needs in the market, the manufacturing industries face a time of considerable change.
It is no longer enough for industrial robots to simply perform a single task. Industry now demands robots with the capacity and flexibility to readily take on more sophisticated tasks.
The MELFA FR series provides new, more intelligent solutions that underpin "next-generation manufacturing", offering a simpler approach to advanced and flexible production. These robots can handle all your automation needs.

MELFA FR series

"Next-generation intelligent functions" make it simple to carry out work that has always defied automation.
"Safe, collaborative work applications" allow robots and people to work together with high levels of safety.
"FA-IT integration functions" support nextgeneration manufacturing.
With these 3 key features, the FR Series is capable of handling virtually all your automation needs.

FR series concept

Intelligence Technology

Enhanced cooperation with vision sensors and more advanced force sensors allow more advanced tasks to be accomplished at higher speeds and with greater precision.

Intelligent Technology

FA-IT Integration

The seamless integration of machines enables flexible manufacturing tailored to the type of production.
This improves productivity and maintainability and can reduce the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

FA-IT integration


Safety functions ensure that automation is simpler, safer and more user-friendly.


Improved controller performance

Control cycles on FR series controllers take just half the current time, improving robot control performance.
The faster calculation speed gives better robot processing capacity and shorter cycle times for improved productivity.
Integration with the various sensors also makes precision operation possible.

CR800 Control cycle

The R Type controllers supported by the MELSEC iQ-R series dramatically improve compatibility with FA equipment, allowing information to be shared mutually and data to be collected and processed. Improved system bus performance has also reduced communication cycles to 1/4 of current levels, allowing shorter cycle times for production facilities.

R type controller

MELSEC iQ-R series-dedicated

  • This controller is compatible with the “iQ Platform”, which seamlessly integrates the various controllers used in a production site with HMIs, the engineering environment and the network.
  • It uses a multi-CPU configuration that dramatically improves its interaction with FA equipment and also offers highly precise control and fast yet simple information management.

CR800-R type controller

D type controller

Standalone type

  • A standalone controller similar to existing models.
  • Enables the construction of cells using robot controllers as the control nucleus.
  • Comes with various interfaces as standard, allowing customers to build a system optimized for their applications.
