The FANUC CRX-5iA is a compact high-performance collaborative robot from the company’s brand new series that features several extended payload options — from 5 to 25 kg — and enhanced reaches of up to 1889 mm, which surpasses even the CR-35iB with its 1831 mm setting. With the improved technical parameters, expanded freedom, and better collaboration, the robots from the line are perfectly fit for handling tough and challenging procedures that expose people to the risk of repetitive strain and work-related injuries. The CRX-5iA and its counterparts possess exceptional reliability and precision, which brings substantial benefits in terms of quality, throughput, cost-saving, and ROI. Excelling the CR series in many ways, they take production rate and user-friendliness to the next level, meeting the needs of both seasoned entrepreneurs and manufacturers with little to no robotic experience.
The CRX-5iA is the most compact model with yet impressive reach, low mechanical weight, and high operation speed, which makes it a valuable acquisition for light and precise operations.
FANUC collaborative robots are all engineered with force, speed, and momentum limiting algorithms to ensure total safety while cooperating with people even without fences. Coming into contact with a person or fixed object, the cobot immediately stops and can be further activated with a single button. Along with the certified mechanisms and sensors, customizable speed and working parameters, the CRX machines get effective protection against dust and liquid ingress. Multiple mounting options make for more flexible layouts.
The manufacturer company provides auxiliary smart modules, such as grippers and cameras, to expand the cobot’s functionality. For example, the FANUC 3D Vision Sensor enables the robots to identify randomly piled parts with various properties, while the FANUC Force Sensor allows detecting force and torque applied to the end effector. With additional tools and intelligent features, CRX machines become suitable for fitting, weighing, collaborative arc welding, 3D bin picking, recognition, reading, sorting, and much more.
The CRX-5iA cobot introduces reliable technology with a high automation potential. Due to its high-grade productivity and light weight, the machine can be safely assigned for a broad range of applications, such as assembling, machine tending, material handling, logistics, and various other tasks, which would otherwise take a lot of human time and effort. On top of that, the cobot is able to perform multistage complicated jobs, including coherent quality checking, in conjunction with the operator.
FANUC CRX machines possess outstanding reliability and remarkable accuracy. The CRX-5iA is able to repeat the same movement within ± 0.03 mm multiple times at the exact dexterity, uptime, and a maximum linear speed of 1000 mm/s and up to 2000 mm/s in the high-speed mode. This allows it to perform even the most diverse precision tasks with ease.
In addition, all CRX models are based on proven FANUC technology implying continuous steady operation backed by full spare parts availability, global service, and 24/7 support.
The FANUC CRX series offers four different payload capacities as well as decent 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 production processes while maintaining the workers’ safety and health.
Due to their exceptional repeatability, FANUC cobots are a valuable tool on assembly lines as their use prevents the risk of repetitive strain injuries among human workers. The CRX-5iA and its counterparts are all capable of consistently lifting and positioning components, which results in improved quality of the products, increased output and manufacturing speed.
CRX cobots are great for inspection stages that require high precision. The additional smart vision modules as well as flexible mounting options and reliable accuracy let the CRX-5iA and other models from the series perform this responsible job in a rapid and efficient way.
FANUC collaborative robots serve as ideal workers for machine tending since they ensure maximized efficiency, better quality, more throughput, and improved performance. This can be clearly seen from the official video below:
Similar to other FANUC’s cobots, the CRX-5iA is great for high-speed precision tasks, such as picking and placing items, palletizing boxes, load transferring, and more.
The collaborative robots can safely apply sealants, adhesives, paints, and other fluids in a fast, accurate, and cost-effective manner.
You can always entrust the CRX-5iA with complex and demanding tasks, such as welding. The machine boasts enough power and precision to perform this type of work impeccably.
Let the cobots deal with the most dull, repetitive, dirty, and dangerous tasks, including packing, so that the human staff can perform more diversified jobs requiring finer skills.
The CRX-5iA is the smallest model in the series. Still, it possesses a maximum reach of up to 994 mm, which is quite impressive for its compact design (in comparison, the fairly similar CR-4iA model is capable of only 550 mm reach). This characteristic makes the cobot perfect for a wide range of repetitive lightweight tasks in areas with limited space requirements. With several mount options and sensitive contact detection, the machine ensures easy integration into any work area or existing system without interfering with the operator’s workspace.
FANUC CRX cobots provide even smoother control than their predecessors from the CR series. The main advantage over traditional programming in the form of the Hand Guidance remains the same yet becomes even more flexible and convenient. This function allows you to teach the cobot by showing it the algorithms for future actions through a direct interaction: you can lead the machine from point to point to plan a new route or use it to lift heavy objects manually. So, the entire set-up process becomes highly intuitive, time- and cost-saving. Furthermore, owing to the intelligent collision detection sensors, the operator will always be safe while interacting with the cobot.
Another means to operate the cobot is via the supplied tablet pendant with ample processing capabilities and clear high-resolution screen. A well-designed iHMI interface with drag-and-drop functionality contains manifold parameters, programming guides, wizards, and tutorials providing step-by-step instructions and recommendations for robot users of any level.
Due to the advanced FANUC R-30iB Mini Plus controller, the cobot comes empowered with more than 250+ software functions. The device features increased ease of use, minimal energy consumption, ergonomic design, and enhanced processing speed.
