Fanuc America in Rochester Hills has expanded its line of high-performance SCARA robots, offering more reach and payload options to companies with assembly, packaging, pick-and-place, and inspection processes.
Fanuc’s line of four-axis SCARA robots has grown to include the SR-3iA, SR-6iA, SR-12iA, and new SR-20iA models with 3kg, 6kg, 12kg, and 20kg payload capacities, and a 400-1,100mm reach, respectively.
The small SR-3iA and SR-6iA SCARAs have a compact footprint and space-saving design for maximum efficiency. In addition, the SR-3iA/H and SR-6iA/H are three-axis variants that provide performance and an affordable alternative to small linear slide products.
The higher-payload SR-12iA and SR-20iA provide flexibility with a large vertical stroke, and an environmental option for harsh conditions. All of FANUC’s SCARA robots include superior robot motion, high-speed operation, and ultimate precision.
“Fanuc’s SCARA robots provide great solutions when speed and repeatability are essential,” says Eric Potter, director of general industry and automotive engineering segments at Fanuc. “Our SCARA robots are designed to help customers increase productivity in a number of industries including consumer electronics, auto components, plastics, food & beverage, lab automation, appliances and medical device manufacturing.”
Powered by the R-30iB Compact Plus controller, the SCARA robots have the same intelligence and reliability that’s available on all Fanuc robots, including integrated iRVision, conveyor tracking (iRPickTool), and most other software options. The company’s latest SCARA iRProgrammer user interface makes it easy to setup and program the robot on a Tablet or PC (Teach Pendant is optional).
“With over 715,000 robots installed globally, FANUC is a household name in manufacturing. Now, with our expansive line of SCARAs we’re able to help more companies solve their manufacturing issues,” added Potter.
