FANUC has introduced two new collaborative robots (cobots) expected to be available in Q2 2020.
The new 10-kilogram-payload CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L (long-arm version) provide a reach of 1,249 mm and 1,418 mm, respectively. Like FANUC’s entire family of collaborative robots, the CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L are designed with sensitive contact detection that allows them to work safely alongside people in a variety of industrial and manufacturing jobs.
Both cobots feature safety-rated contact stop detection and can be set up straight out of the box. The ergonomic design includes a lightweight and compact arm that fits in virtually any floor space configuration.
The compact R-30iB Plus mini controller features lead-though teach programming and a new tablet interface with icons for touch control.
The CRX-10iA/L arm’s swing motion makes it easy to access parts located behind the robot, and both arms connect with third-party grippers.
The robots support FANUC’s integrated iRVision and iRPickTool software.
