Compact welding robot12 September 2018 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
Claimed to be designed for manufacturers with compact floor spaces, but managing large workpieces, Fanuc says its ARCMate 100iD/10L is suitable for high-batch production lines where the quality and function of the weld are critical. The company says this robot has capacity for 10kg of additional tooling, such as welding torches and offers a footprint of 343 x 343mm.
It can be mounted either upside-down or at an angle and routes all cables and welding hosepipes internally. Fanuc says the robot features integrated software and its R-30iB Plus controller can guide an operator through set-up and programming.
