FANUC America unveiled its CRX-10iA/L portray collaborative robotic this week.  The corporate is positioning the robotic as its first explosion-proof (ex-proof) collaborative paint robotic to be used and sale globally.

Firms that paint, powder coat, or gel coat can profit from the ex-proof robots, FANUC mentioned. The robotic is designed to adjust to the stringent explosion-proof security requirements required in america and different areas, together with IECEx, ATEX, Canada, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan and Brazil.

FANUC has engineered a broad vary of CRX cobots for purposes the place people must work inside the cobots’ work envelope. FANUC mentioned its cobots are designed to be simple to show and easy to make use of, which reduces the talent set essential to arrange and preserve the answer.

As with different CRX fashions, the CRX-10iA/L Paint collaborative robotic will be programmed with the FANUC CRX Pill Educate Pendant. Through graphical icons, customers can create paint path applications utilizing the drag-and-drop interface. Paint-specific icon instructions have additionally been added for paint purposes.

“FANUC paint robots have been designed and manufactured repeatedly in Michigan since 1982. Now with the brand new CRX-10iA/L Paint collaborative robotic, extra operations will be capable of reap the advantages of paint and coating automation,” says Ed Minch, gross sales director for auto part & basic trade paint at FANUC America. “We all know our prospects are struggling to extend their manufacturing and effectivity to maintain up with rising demand whereas staying worthwhile. Cobots that paint might be a game-changer for firms that may have little or no or no prior expertise with robots to assist them cost-effectively automate inside a brief interval. That is the primary collaborative paint robotic obtainable on the market and use in North and South America.”

CRX-10iA/L specs

The brand new CRX-10iA/L paint cobot has a payload of 10 kg (22 lbs) and a attain of 1,418mm (55.8 inches), permitting the cobot to entry massive workpieces. That includes the identical easy and rounded design of the CRX sequence, the CRX-10iA/L Paint cobot is light-weight at 45 kg (99 lbs) and has a small footprint, which will be additional enhanced by stacking the management unit onto a light-weight and compact R-30iB Mini Plus controller.

Together with the opposite CRX cobots, the CRX-10iA/L Paint is maintenance-free for 8 years including to possession financial savings and boosting operations.

Moreover, the CRX-10iA/L Paint cobot has full optimization capabilities with path modifying and ROBOGUIDE software program. It could simply be built-in with different gear utilized in portray, powder, liquid, coating and fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP CHOP/GEL) purposes.

FANUC wins RBR50 Award

FANUC not too long ago received a 2024 RBR50 Robotics Innovation Award for the manufacturing of its one millionth industrial robotic. FANUC reached the milestone in August 2023 when it produced a FANUC R-2000iC/210F, an industrial robotic designed to carry heavy payloads as much as 210 kg (462.9 lb.) in a wide range of purposes.

FANUC developed its first robotic in 1974, known as “FANUC ROBOT MODEL 1.” FANUC used the robotic by itself manufacturing line.

At present, FANUC presents greater than 200 industrial and cobot fashions which can be utilized in manufacturing services worldwide to assemble, deal with, bundle, paint, and weld merchandise of each form and measurement.
