FABTECH PREVIEW: FANUC America to demonstrate automated solutions for welding and coating

Share This Post

FANUC America will demonstrate the industry’s latest automation technologies for welding and coating at FABTECH 2023.

Visitors can see FANUC’s CNC and robotic welding demonstrations in booth B-27015 and automated solutions for painting and coating in booth D-40523.

FANUC’s collaborative robots are flexible solutions for companies looking to improve productivity and solve labor issues, the company says. FANUC’s entire series of CRX collaborative robots are designed for eight years without maintenance. Easy-to-use interactive programming allows operators to teach points using hand guidance or a Tablet TP with drag and drop icons. In addition, all FANUC CRX welding cobots support FANUC’s advanced features including iRVision, Touch Sensing, Servo Torch, Thru Arc Seam Tracking (TAST and Multi Pass (MP).

At FABTECH, a range of FANUC’s cobot welders will be on display:

The CRX-25iA welding cobot, which now offers a 30kg payload and 1,889mm reach, will demonstrate welding joints on a mower deck. Attendees can teach points using hand guidance or the Tablet TP interface with drag and drop icons.

A FANUC CRX-10iA/L welding cobot with a long 1418mm reach will showcase live aluminum arc welding with the FANUC Servo Torch. Attendees will be able to teach weld joints using hand guidance or the Tablet TP with drag and drop icons. The demonstration will include FANUC’s advanced aluminum MIG weld process control demonstrating low frequency pulse and heat wave, utilizing a Lincoln Electric PowerWave R450 weld power supply.

Lincoln Electric’s Cooper mobile welding cart featuring FANUC’s CRX -10iA/L will offer attendees a hands-on experience programming with the Cooper App. The Cooper robotic welding system is easy to program and use with the intuitive FANUC Tablet TP and the ability to teach at the torch by hand. Lincoln Electric’s Power Wave R450 robotic welding platform provides the same performance found in traditional robotic welding.

An APT ModWeld Cobot MAC Cart featuring FANUC’s CRX-10iA and a Miller Auto-Continuum 350 offers a modular solution that can be easily expanded. Visitors will have a hands-on experience programming with the APT Clever Torch teach buttons.

A CRX-10iA with the Power Motion i-Model A (PMi-A) will simulate brake rotor assembly. The PMi- A moves parts into position for the CRX, presses a simulated rivet into the part, and performs quality inspection of the rivet press. The demonstration shows the versatility of the CRX cobot combined with the PMi-A, a high-performance and scalable general motion control supporting applications that require one to 32 axes.

The PMi-A, which offers CNC-style motion control for automated assembly and other applications, integrates seamlessly into virtually any production system using ethernet connection for easy communication between robots and machines.
