Fanuc Robotic has added the Paint Mate 200iA to its range of spray painting robots.

Based on the LR Mate series, the Paint Mate 200iA has a small footprint and can be accommodated in confined spaces.

A variety of mounting options, floor, ceiling, wall or angle are suitable for the Paint Mate and its configuration, dexterity and reach make it ideal for complex shapes.

Two options, Paint Mate 200iA and 200iA/5L, provide reaches of 704mm and 892mm respectively.

Further enhancing its suitability for confined spaces, the robot has absolute encoders, which avoid the need for the arm to return to a home position to recalibrate after power is removed.

High-speed operation with rigid construction ensures fast but smooth painting speeds to be maintained.

Suitable for the most aggressive environments, the Paint Mate uses brushless motors with sealed bearings and the complete arm structure is purged with pressurised air.

The Paint Mate is compliant with FM and Atex Hazardous approval Class I, Class II, and III division 1 environments.

Two levels of application-specific software are available with Paint Mate, each providing basic and custom levels of programming together with built in macro functions.

At the highest level, Paint Tool software provides facility for colour change control, variable ratio pump control, Accuflow closed-loop fluid control, line tracking, and collision detection.

Intuitive user operation and ease of programming is provided by the internet-ready colour teach pendant.

Control is implemented by Fanuc’s R30iA controller, which has the ability for multi-arm and full system control.

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.
