Each year, around 1.6 million twins are born around in the world. Some are identical and some are not. But even identical twins are not completely identical. The same could be stated regarding the FANUC CR robots and the LR Mate series robots. They may look like twins because they share similar physical designs with very little differences, but they are both quite different in many aspects. The major difference can be noted in their working speed, environment, and safety. To better understand the FANUC LR MATE and CR Robots, we should review their capabilities, similarities and differences.
Sometimes it’s better to break down complex words to understand their meaning. Let’s do that with the word: Machine-Tending. The first part of the term is Machine. We probably all know what the definition of a machine is. As for the second part of the term, tending refers to the act of carefully providing for someone or something. So, those two words together and in the context of industrial automation, refer to the loading or unloading of parts or material on a machine.
Welding is a fabrication process in which materials such as metals or thermoplastics are joined. It uses heat to melt the joints of the desired parts. The cooling that ensues causes fusion. Welding is different from brazing or soldering where the base material does not melt. There are different types of welding. All of which can be clubbed under two broad categories such as Manual welding and Robotic welding.
Before diving into the unexplored boundaries of Cobots, it is important to understand that they were never meant to replace humans. Their main purpose is to assist workers and make their tasks more effective and efficient. That’s why they are called Cobots or Collaborative robots. With this in mind, let us explore the new horizons of Cobots.
The future of industrial robots looks very bright as many companies are looking to automate their production lines, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a report from Reportlinker from November 2020, industrial robotics which is the top segment in robotics, is about to experience a compound annual growth of 18.2% with revenues growing to $176.8 billion in 2025 from $76.6 billion in 2020.
FANUC has once again raised the bar for cobots with the launch of their new CRX series. The new pair of CRX models, the CRX 10iA and the CRX 10iA/L have established themselves as the new leaders in the field of automation. With several cobot models available, what distinguishes this lineup from other units on the market?
The industrial robotics market is booming, and more than ever before companies are automating their production process using cobots. But what exactly are cobots? What makes them different from regular industrial robots?
The cobot contingent is the fastest growing sector of the industrial automation movement. According to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), industrial cobots are expected to make up over a third of industrial robot sales over the next five years. Cobots are designed to allow humans and robots to work together, taking advantage of the unique skills and benefits of both. These are the top 5 reasons why your company should consider working with cobots. 1. There is no need for [...]
If you thought robots were going to take over all of our factory jobs, you probably never considered the collaborative robot, or cobot. These machines are designed to work with and assist humans in the factory environment. Rather than to remove humans entirely from the process, machinery is quite capable of facilitating a variety of jobs that improve accuracy, safety, and precision. So what are the top 5 questions you should ask yourself before going with cobots in your factory? [...]
The world of robotics is in a golden age and the fields of industrial robotics and automation are reaping the benefits. In particular, the advent of the cobot fulfills the dream of humans and robots working side by side. In this article, we’ll take a look at the Top 5 collaborative robots currently on the market. ABB YuMi® IRB 14000 The Swiss-Swedish team at ABB has established their company as a leader in industrial robotics. The IRB 14000 cobot, known [...]
