FANUC America, the leading supplier of robotics, CNCs and robomachines, has expanded its line of collaborative robots to include six models. Look for the company at Amazon’s re:MARS Tech Showcase (June 4-7 in Las Vegas, NV) where they will demonstrate how to program and use a FANUC CR-7iA collaborative robot.

The company’s series of power and force limiting collaborative robots can handle 4-35 kg payloads and a 550-1813 mm reach. Easy to program and use, even for those with little or no experience, the cobots are equipped with FANUC’s iHMI intuitive touch screen user interface that includes step-by-step programming instructions right from the teach pendant. Simple and straightforward programming helps reduce costs associated with operator training, minimizes setup time and increases system productivity. In addition, the hand guidance feature allows operators to teach a collaborative robot by leading it through paths at the press of a button and/or use it to lift heavy objects manually. 

The company’s six cobot models combine world-renowned automation technology, proven reliability and very sensitive built-in sensors that allow them to work safely alongside people in a variety of industrial/manufacturing jobs including machine tending, dispensing, inspection, kitting, palletizing, e-commerce, and more. In addition, FANUC’s collaborative robots are equipped with intelligent options such as iRVision and force sensing.
