FANUC America’s Quick and Simple Startup of Robotization (QSSR) feature enables FANUC CNCs to control connected FANUC robots providing machine tending and other assistance for more efficient operations.

FANUC’s QSSR is a complete package that simplifies the connection of a FANUC robot to a FANUC controlled machine tool. The QSSR G-code feature is said to enable operators and machine tool builders to program robots easily through the FANUC CNC in ISO standard G-code format; further, those unfamiliar with robotic programming language will no longer require additional training or specialists. A reliance on a separate teach pendant for the robot is also greatly reduced with the capability of robotic programming and operation through the CNC user interface. 

According to the company, the QSSR makes connecting a FANUC robot through a high-speed Ethernet cable to a machine tool easier, and simplifies setup, programming and operation. The QSSR G-code feature is available on FANUC CNC Series Oi-F, Oi-F Plus, 30i-B and 30i-B Plus.
