Compact Machine-Tending and Warehousing RobotDecember 14, 2021
Fanuc America has introduced the LR-10iA/10 robot, designed for machine tending and a variety of warehouse and logistics picking applications. Weighing only 46 kg, the robot mounts to the floor, upside down or on an angle. Also, it easily mounts to an AGV or other mobile platform to accommodate a variety of repetitive tasks or automate machines that are standing idle.
The LR-10iA/10 has a 10-kg payload and a large work envelope with a reach of 1101 mm. Its compact size makes it an ideal solution for companies with limited floor space, and the slim arm fits into machine tools to load and unload parts, note company officials. In addition, a fully enclosed structure features built-in air lines, solenoid valves and electrical utilities for simple integration, and an IP67 rating allows it to operate in industrial environments with dust, water and oil mist.
Powered by the Fanuc R-30iB Mate Plus controller, the LR-10iA offers the same intelligence and reliability available on all Fanuc robots, including the company’s integrated iRVision and Zero Down Time, and force sensing.
