The FANUC CR-4iA is the most compact model from the company’s versatile collaborative robot series, with the lineup featuring several payload options — from 4 to 35 kg — and unprecedented reaches of up to 1831 mm with a 360° work envelope. The cobots from the line are ideally fit for handling working procedures that expose people to the risk of repetitive strain and work-related injuries. The CR-4iA and other cobots possess exceptional reliability and precision making for substantial benefits in terms of quality, throughput, cost-saving, and ROI. Still, they are quick to install, easy to use, and powered by intuitive software covering the needs of both experienced users and those who are new to automation technologies.
All FANUC collaborative robots are designed with force, speed, and momentum limiting algorithms to ensure complete safety while working alongside people. Coming into contact with a person or fixed object, the cobot immediately stops and can be further activated with a single button. Due to the certified mechanisms and sensors as well as customizable speed and working parameters, the CR machines can cooperate with human staff without external safety devices. On top of that, all the versions except the CR-35iA can be mounted upside-down, on a wall, or fixed to a mobile platform or rail for more flexible layouts.
Depending on your needs, you can also use the following smart modules: the FANUC 3D Vision Sensor enabling the cobots to identify randomly piled parts with various properties, FANUC Force Sensor detecting force and torque applied to the end effector, and much more. Being equipped with additional tools and intelligent functions, the machines become suitable for assembly, fitting, weighing, collaborative arc welding, 3D bin picking, recognition, reading, sorting, etc.
Due to the reliable technology and high productivity, the compact CR-4iA cobot is able to automate entire assembly operations in any industry, for example, packaging, distribution, metalworking, and more. Apart from simple lightweight tasks, the device can perform more complex jobs requiring interactive approaches with the involvement of both the robot and the operator, such as coherent quality checking.
The FANUC CR machines provide exceptional reliability and high precision. The CR-4iA is capable of repeating the same movement within ± 0.01–0.05 mm multiple times at the exact dexterity, uptime, and a maximum speed of 500 mm/s for each joint.
Furthermore, all the CR models are based on the proven FANUC technology implying continuous steady operation backed by full spare parts availability, global service, and 24/7 support.
The FANUC CR series offers five different payload capacities as well as industry-leading reach options, which lets them perform a number of tedious and repetitive tasks for a wide range of professional applications. This allows you to automate manifold processes while maintaining the workers’ safety and health.
Using FANUC cobots on assembly lines prevents the risk of repetitive strain injuries among human workers. Similar to other CR-devices, the CR-4iA is capable of consistently lifting and positioning components due to its high repeatability, which additionally improves quality of the products, increases output and speed of production.
The collaborative robots from the CR series can safely apply sealants, adhesives, paints, and other fluids in a highly accurate and cost-effective way.
The CR-4iA is great for inspection stages where high precision is required. With the smart vision sensors attached, flexible mounting options and outstanding repeatability, the machine is perfectly suited for this demanding type of work.
Using the CR cobots for machine tending provides you with maximized efficiency, better quality, more throughput, and improved performance.
Since the cobots are engineered to carry out dull, repetitive, dirty, and dangerous tasks, you can apply them to pack the products, while the human staff will be free to perform more complex and diversified jobs requiring fine skills.
The CR-4iA and other FANUC cobots are great for high-speed precision tasks, such as picking and placing, palletizing, and more.
Being the smallest model from the series, the CR-4iA cobot has a maximum reach of up to 550 mm, which makes it a perfect device for a variety of lightweight tasks in areas with limited space requirements. Considering several mount options, the machine will fit into almost any environment without interfering with the operator’s workspace.
FANUC CR cobots provide several convenient control options depending on the user’s purposes and skills.
First and foremost, the CR series allows you to break away from traditional programming by means of the Hand Guidance function. With it, you can intuitively teach the cobot by showing it the algorithms for future actions: plan the machine’s route leading it from point to point or use it to lift heavy objects manually. These time-saving steps contribute to smooth and reliable cooperation as well as reduced training costs. Moreover, due to the thoughtful collision detection sensor, the operator will always be safe while working with the cobot.
Additionally, the CR-4iA can be managed through easy-to-attach joysticks (standard and small versions are available) with simple plug-and-play functionality and lightweight design. The devices support wireless communication via the iPendant.
The user is also able to set up the robot through the dedicated tablet pendant offering ample processing power and clear high-resolution screen display. The FANUC’s accessible iHMI interface makes interacting with cobots as easy as possible. It contains multiple parameters, programming guides, wizards, and tutorials with step-by-step instructions and recommendations for aspiring robot users on how to create desired programs. The simplified system facilitates the process and greatly improves the machine’s efficiency.
The FANUC R-30iB Plus controller provides 250+ handy software features the best processing speed and robot performance. At the same time, it is designed for increased user-friendliness, minimal energy consumption, and rational layout. The R-30iB Mini Plus Controller ensures even more space savings.
