Fanuc Robotics has announced its latest welding robot, the Arcmate 100iC/10s, designed for small weld cells or for densely populated welding systems.

The Arcmate features a shorter forearm, a 10kg payload for special welding guns and advanced sensor technology.

A variant of the Arcmate 100iC welding robot, the new arm retains its slim design and further supports multi-robot requirements with its compact 1,098mm reach.

Mounting options, including base mount, ceiling and angle orientation, further increase opportunities for system builders.

Designed for high productivity, the 10kg capacity arm will manipulate heavier torches and sensor systems at tool centre point (TCP) speeds of 4.21m/s.

The arm has the ability to flip on joint three helping to maximise the robot’s work envelope when inverted.

Longer cable life remains a feature of the Fanuc Robotics Arcmate 100iC robot.

Internal cable management, from the robot’s ’base to the weld torch’, allows the dress package (wire, gas and power supplies) to accurately follow the robots motion, avoiding snagged and broken cables.

By using its advanced collision protection software, integral to its R30iA controller, the Arcmate 100iC does not require a collision protection sensor – this allows the weld torch offset to be shortened.

The cable management system ensures that full rotation of the wrist joint is possible while maintaining the full protection of the service cables and shield gas pipes.

Control of up to 40 multiple axes is available with the R-30iA controller and when used in multi-arm mode, one controller can control four arms and four auxiliary axes groups.

Further reducing the additional control hardware common to any installation, the new controller can be completed with its own programmable machine controller (PMC).

The PMC has an integrated monitor that allows the user to monitor the PMC ladder in a graphic display for all levels and subprograms that reside in the controller.

FANUC UK provides industrial automation solutions ranging from the supply of CNC controllers, robots, drilling machines, EDM and injection moulding machines through to the complete integration of factory automation systems.

Providing a single customer support portal for its three core businesses, FANUC comprises FA — CNC controllers, motors and drives; robotics — industrial robots and systems; robomachines — EDM, injection moulding and drilling machines.


FANUC’s FA business manufactures CNC controls, drive systems and laser systems. With a 65 per cent market share in the global CNC control sector, FANUC is the market leader. FANUC CNC is the controller of choice for the world’s leading machine tool manufacturers; continuously developing functionality sees FANUC CNC control being used in a wide range of applications — combining powerful control and high precision with unparalleled reliability.

FANUC servo drives and motors are well proven — aimed at the machine builder, they offer the widest range of high-performance compact designs.  The high availability and ease of maintenance together with world-class, energy-efficient designs make them the motors of choice for thousands of OEMs around the world.


FANUC’s robotics business manufactures the widest range of robots in the world for applications from micro-electronics assembly to the forging of precision aerofoils for jet engines — in industries as diverse as pharmaceutical and potato processing — and with maximum payloads from 1kg to 1,350kg. More than 280,000 FANUC robots are operating worldwide, with production currently geared to meet demands of 5,000 per month. FANUC robots are truly ‘out-of-the-box’ automation designed to be totally flexible and, with application-specific options, straightforward to integrate.


FANUC’s robomachine business manufactures Robodrill machining centres, Robocut EDM machines and Roboshot electric injection-moulding machines. Using FANUC components throughout, the robomachine business builds on the advanced technology, reliability, energy efficiency and innovation of its own controllers, drives and motors. With a focus on energy efficiency and high reliability, the robomachine business developed the first all-electric injection-moulding machines — Roboshot — changing the mould shop into a much cleaner and quieter environment.
