FANUC CR-35iA working hand-in-hand with human employees

Added to MTDCNC by FANUC UK on 15 June 2015
Previously the collaborative robot has only been seen in works of science fiction. However, today marks the launch of the world’s first heavy lifting industrial collaborative robot, the FANUC CR-35iA, working hand-in-hand with human employees. 
 
FANUC’s collaborative robot ensures safety through the use of intelligent sensors, which automatically stops the robot if it touches a human operator. This removes the need for safety fences, a previous requirement for all industrial robots, increasing production efficiencies and enabling a higher level of automation. 
 
Servicing a variety of manufacturing industries, the CR-35iA can perform both simple and complex tasks lifting payloads of up to 35 kg. The collaborative robot is also available with patented iRVision technology. 
 
Chris Sumner, vice president of FANUC Europe and managing director, FANUC UK said: 'Collaborative robot technology opens up a new era for manufacturing in which humans and robots will work even more closely on tasks; increasing productivity and efficiencies across the plant floor.'
