FANUC Showcases CRX Cobots at The Battery Show North America

FANUC will demonstrate its popular line of CRX collaborative robots at The Battery Show North America in Novi, Mich., Sept. 13-15, booth #2626.

FANUC, the global leader in CNCs, robotics and ROBOMACHINEs will demonstrate its popular line of CRX collaborative robots at The Battery Show North America in Novi, Mich., Sept. 13-15, booth #2626.

FANUC's CRX cobots are extremely robust and able to run for up to eight years without maintenance. Interactive programming enables users to teach points using hand guidance or a tablet interface with drag and drop icons. Following the success of the CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L, three new models were introduced this year including the CRX-5iA, CRX-20iA/L and CRX-25iA. The expanding cobot series can handle products from 5kg to 25kg and reach capabilities from 994mm to 1,889mm.

There are now 11 FANUC CR and CRX cobot models available to help the battery, EV and other industries with production applications such as inspection, machine load/unload, packing, palletizing, sanding, welding, and many more.

At the show, a FANUC CRX-10iA will provide attendees the opportunity to try the cobot's intuitive hand guidance and easy-to-use tablet programming.

In a second demonstration, a CRX-10iA/L will use AI Error Proofing to inspect for the presence/absence of components on steering wheels. FANUC's AI Error Proofing is a function in iRVision® designed for part inspection that uses machine-learning technology. The CRX-10iA/L equipped with a robot-mounted camera will inspect two steering wheels to determine passed or failed samples. The steering wheels will be fixed to a table but can be rotated by an operator to show that the robot is able to inspect non-fixtured parts.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
