Two FANUC Robots Weld an ATV Chassis Using the New FANUC R-30iB Controller with 4D Graphics iPendant

 
 

FANUC Robotics' Next Generation Welding Cell with the New FANUC R-30iB Controller features a DualARM-controlled FANUC ARC Mate 100iC Robot, and angle-mounted ARC Mate 120iC/10L Robot as they work in coordinated motion on a two-axis positioner to simulate welding of an ATV frame.

The new FANUC R-30iB Controller uses high-performance hardware and the latest advances in network communications, integrated iRVision, and motion control functions. Based on the latest FANUC Series 30iB CNC Controller, the new R-30iB Robot Controller is compact, providing customers a significant space savings. The new R-30iB Controller is also energy efficient, requiring less power consumption than previous models. 

Once the welds are complete, a camera equipped with FANUC iRVision Error Proofing verifies the weld nut threads. The R-30iB Controller features FANUC's exclusive new and easy-to-use iPendant with 4D graphics. The iPendant displays process information and the actual process path directly on the iPendant screen, enabling easier setup and troubleshooting. The 4D graphical iPendant includes 3D graphics plus invisible process data. Dual Check Safety (DCS) speed and position check software restricts the travel of the robots to the exact area in which they work. By moving some of the safety functions to within the robot, customers see significant savings in floor space, flexibility in system layout, reduced hardware costs, and improved reliability.

The new R-30iB Controller with the 4D iPendant and improved productivity represents a new era of robot intelligence, enhancing functionality while reducing energy consumption with the new, energy-efficient FANUC R-30iB Controller.
