Fanuc UK has launched two energy-saving robot arms — the six-axis LRMate 200-ID and the Delta arm configuration Genkotsu M-2IA — both of which are suitable for integration by machine builders or as standalone production units.

Both products are designed to deliver energy savings and high-speed performance. According to the company, features such as regenerative braking, path optimisation and intuitive teaching help to provide manufacturers with a cost-effective alternative to specialist dedicated hardware.

The robots are controlled by the new energy-saving R-30iB controller, which can be stacked to save valuable space. Features include IRVision, real-time interactive Ipendant Touch, Learning Vibration Control (LVC) for path optimisation and auto motor braking to save power.

Products in detail

LRMate 200-ID

  • This high-speed robot is designed to be integrated into special-purpose machinery and is also suitable for general-purpose handling.
  • Weighing in at an overall 25kg, the LRMate 200-ID weighs 2kg less than its predecessor and, combined with a reduction in arm width of 15mm, the compact unit provides a cost-effective handling or transfer solution for machine and system builders.
  • The six-axis robot has an increased payload, up from 5kg to 7kg, with an uprated wrist assembly making longer tool offsets possible.
  • Increased joint speeds on every axis of up to 25 per cent, together with wrist moment and wrist inertia improvements, have resulted in the LRMate 200-ID being able to perform the industry-standard bench test (25 x 300 x 25mm) with 1kg payload 35 per cent faster at 0.32 seconds or 187.5 cycles per minute.
  • Installation and access with the new arm is improved thanks to the slim design and increased work envelope; reach is increased both horizontally and vertically.
  • Its lower weight and ceiling-, wall- or floor-mounting options allow integrators to design machines with easy access to reduce lost production time when re-tooling or carrying out maintenance procedures.
  • Integrated signal cable and pneumatics are enclosed within the robot arm, from base to forearm mounted connectors, helping to prevent snagging in confined cells and to speed up programming.
  • In addition to air, I/O connections and three double-acting solenoid valves, the LRMate 200-ID is now equipped with an integrated sensor, Ethernet and auxiliary axis cables.

Genkotsu M-2IA

  • The new 3kg payload parallel link M-2IA fills a gap between the existing 1kg and 6kg arms in Fanuc’s Genkotsu series.
  • The M-2IA provides a large work envelope, with high-throughput performance for mid-range assembly and handling tasks.
  • Two variants of the four-axis M-2IA are available — a standard-reach and a long-reach version — to address a range of applications in the food, electronics and general manufacturing sectors.
  • The parallel link structure ensures higher speeds and greater accuracy than conventional SCARA-type assembly arms.
  • Handling a test payload of 1kg, the M-2IA will complete the standard pick-and-place trial of 25mm up, 305mm linear and 25mm down in just 0.27 seconds, 222 cycles per minute, at ±0.1mm repeatability.
  • Aimed at assembly and packing operations, the parallel link structure is said to be the ideal line builder solution where space is confined; the cylindrical work envelope, up to 400mm in depth and 1,130mm in diameter, is concentric to the robot mounting base, making it straightforward to position and guard relative to peripheral equipment.
  • A hollow wrist design allows for control cabling and pneumatics to be routed neatly, avoiding snagging and helping to make programming faster and allowing fast wrist rotations.

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.

CNC

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.

Robotics 

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.

Robomachine

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.

Customer support

From initial sales contact with FANUC through the life of the product, FANUC provides one single contact point to make sure support is always at hand with up-to-date advice, genuine warranted parts and, whenever possible, obsolescence avoidance solutions that ensure the lifetime delivery of maximum efficiency.
