 Thursday, July 18, 2019

FANUC America, one of the leading automation solutions provider will showcase industry-leading robotics, CNC systems, at AWFS Fair. FANUC will display automation, and Industrial IoT solutions, along with the latest technologies for the woodworking industry at their booth #7071 in the trade fair.

CNC Powered Tabletop Router – FANUC will demonstrate the FANUC Series 0i-MODEL F CNC system running a tabletop router.  FANUC motors power the motion on the system and show the speed and precision that is possible even on a small-scale router. In the demonstration, the router will simulate machining a 3-D image, requiring high precision and offering fast speeds.

High-Speed SCARA Robot – A FANUC SR-6iA SCARA robot will demonstrate high speed picking and placing of two different size batteries. 

User-Friendly Cobot – A FANUC CR-15iA collaborative robot equipped with a 3DV/400 Vision Sensor presents a gift to attendees who place their business cards in a holder.

Robotic Sanding – A FANUC M10iD/12 robot picks a chair seat and places it onto a fixture using the FS-15iA Force Sensor’s phase matching option allowing the robot to align and match the chair seat to the fixture.  Next, the robot flips the tool and sands the top surface using the Force Sensor’s contour option enabling the sander to apply constant force – this is especially useful for uneven surfaces.  Once the robot sands the top side it picks up the seat and places it bottom-side up in the fixture for sanding using the same technique.  Once both sides are sanded the robot transfers the seat to a glue nozzle to simulate gluing.  Finally, the robot places the seat back on the chair, performs a variety of dance moves, and the cycle repeats.  

FANUC’s innovative technologies and proven expertise help manufacturers in the Americas maximize productivity, reliability and profitability.
