FANUC revamped its CR-35iB collaborative robot (cobot) arm. The 6-axis arm can reach up to 1,832 mm and has a payload of 35 kg.
The CR-35iB is intended to work safely alongside humans in applications that would usually require lift assist devices or custom equipment. With the cobot’s higher payload, end-users can prevent work-related injuries related to repetitive strain. The cobot arm has a small installation footprint, meaning it’s able to work in tight spaces.
The arm can be equipped with a FANUC Vision Sensor or a FANUC 3D Area Sensor so that it’s able to locate or visualize products. Like all of FANUC’s robots, the CR-35iB can also be equipped with intelligence functions, like the FANUC iRVision and force sensors.
FANUC’s CR-35iB was designed to be easy to program no matter how familiar you are with robotics. Programming doesn’t require any programming or coding skills, instead operators can use the FANUC Hand Guidance option. With this option, users guide the cobot through paths to teach it a new task, or use FANUC’s tablet TP equipped with a drag and drop interface.
The cobot arm is ideal for vision-guided picking or inspection, material handling, part transfer, machine tending, packing, palletizing and any task that requires a heavy payload and close interaction with workers. FANUC designed it to work within the automotive, packaging, distribution and metalworking industries, among others.
