FANUC’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 – FANUC’s 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, FANUC’s 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.

FANUC’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.

of payload, reach and speed options,” said Amanda Nixon, collaborative
robot product manager, FANUC America. “In addition, our cobots are very
