R-30iB brochure - .PDF file.

Fanuc has enhanced the design of its R-30iB robot controller, making it faster, more compact and more environmentally friendly than the previous system, thus saving power and maximising productivity.

The overall volume of the new R-30iB design has been reduced by 68 per cent, measuring just 500 x 600 x 470mm. In addition, the controller can be stacked up, reducing the floor space required by up to 77 per cent, according to the company.

Utilising the same platform as the new Fanuc 30i CNC controller, the revised robot controller delivers the same amount of power as its larger predecessor, with more than 4,096 I/O supported, 40 axes of control capability and eight motion groups, up to four line tracking encoders and support for most common industrial communication and bus systems.

Key features

  • Ipendant Touch — this comes with a 4D graphic function and is designed to make programming and interaction easier
  • Automatic motor braking — after exceeding a programmed idle period, this allows motors to reduce power but still maintain arm position
  • Improved software features — these provide further opportunities for reducing cycle times and maximising productivity
  • Learning Vibration Control (LVC) — this function increases robot speed and acceleration for a given path providing typical increases of eight to 10 per cent cycle time improvement

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.
