    Automotive transfer: "Part Transfer Robots - FANUC America"

    The strongest of its kind in the industrial robotics market, FANUC’s M-2000iA Robot was designed to handle the heaviest of payloads while offering one-of-a-kind flexibility, longevity and unparalleled reliability.

    In this demonstration of the M-2000iA robot’s capabilities, the M-2000iA/900L long arm model lifts sequenced palletized automotive seats from a delivery truck. This demonstrates the robot’s ability to lift and transfer parts directly from an automated semi-trailer into plant automation. The robot locates the trailer and product positions using FANUC iRVision 3DL, which compensates for trailer location and dimensional variations present in over the road semi-trailer processes. The robot proceeds to move the seats to an overhead conveyor and loads the conveyor with the seats.

    After loading the seats, the M-2000iA robot moves to an empty pallet conveyor and picks up the empty pallets. The robot transfers the empty pallets and loads them into the trailer, and the cycle repeats. In addition to being the highest payload industrial robot on the market with capability of handling up to 2300 kg, FANUC’s M-2000iA also boasts the longest reach, allowing this unique robot to perform the work of conventional cranes, hoists and shuttles to increase output and eliminate dangerous manual work.

    Here we see a close up view of the orange clamp used to grip the pallet as it closes on the pallets in the trailer. Especially appreciated in the automotive industry, the heavy payload FANUC M-2000iA robot is capable of lifting a variety of delivered modules including dashboards, seats, front end modules, tire/wheel kits, powertrain, truck frames, and many more. It can load and unload these parts from trucks, semi-trailers, conveyors, automatic guided vehicles, dunnage racks, rail cars, shipping containers, and virtually any suitable factory automation.

    Robotic Die Cast Tending System is Portable, Versatile and Compact - Durabotics

    Published on Aug 21, 2015

    FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Durabotics’ portable Die Cast Tending System uses the FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7L long arm robot to complete a fully automated and extremely versatile solution for improved die casting process speed, reliability and throughput. The FANUC LR Mate robot in this Durabotics system automatically unloads and quenches die cast parts, sprues, gates and runners from a zinc die cast machine. The robot then places the parts into a trim die station, followed by deposit of excess material into a re-melt system.

    The robot works within the cycle time of the Die Cast Machine. Once the cast is set and the die opens, ejector pins extend enough to unseat the part, but not enough for the part to fall from the mold. The FANUC robot moves to pick the part, complete with sprue and runner, and unloads it from the die press. Once the robot exits the die press area, die lube is sprayed and the die press closes. A die shield provides protection for the robot from the die spray. The robot quenches the part in a water basin, and then loads the part into a trim press, but holds onto the sprue. The trim press engages and good parts are automatically ejected down a chute or multiple chutes depending on the part configuration. Meanwhile the robot moves the sprue or runner to a chute for re-melting, and the process repeats.

    This system’s very narrow footprint allows it to fit in between die cast machines. The system is highly portable – It is easily moved from one die cast station to another with a simple pallet jack or forklift. Additionally, it can be locked into customized docking stations placed at multiple die cast machine locations. This quick-lock docking station comes equipped with locating pins that assure repeatability.

    Designed with the customer’s needs in mind, this system from Durabotics is an ideal solution for automated die cast tending. To learn more about FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Durabotics and their full range of automated solutions, please visit

    Robotic Cake Cutting & Tray Packing System - Smart Motion Robotics

    Published on Sep 18, 2015

    Food handling robots

    FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Smart Motion Robotics developed this automated system to utilize a series of FANUC robots for fast and efficient cutting and tray packing of small cakes. With the help of these reliable FANUC M-10iA/10S short arm robots, 8,000 cakes can be cut and tray packed per hour by two systems.

    Cakes enter the system hot out of the oven, traveling down a conveyor and passing through FANUC’s iRVision system, seen here as a red light. FANUC robots locate each cake using iRVision, then pick the cakes and place them onto a platform where the robot performs three cuts with a serrated knife to cut the cake into six slices. The cake is then picked and placed onto a second platform holding a plastic tray. Once in its tray, the cake is ejected to a reverse-direction conveyor, which feeds into a Flow Pack machine.

    Smart Motion Robotics developed a custom de-nester that readies the next tray. There are two systems of eight robots in each system, which are operationally self-contained with a built-in 20% system failsafe. FANUC iRVision tracks the cakes and allocates them to each FANUC robot equally. Both systems combined are capable of processing over 8,000 cakes per hour. All of the tooling and system hardware was designed and built by Smart Motion Robotics. The robots even clean their own knives. The system is easy to maintain, and trays are fed into the de-nester from outside the cell. To learn more about this system and more from Smart Motion Robotics, please visit

This fast and reliable automated system is capable of top loading rigid, semi-rigid and flexible products, and is ideally-suited for retail ready or display cases.

    Cases are hand fed onto the case infeed conveyor, while packages of shredded cheese are conveyed into the system by a continuously running infeed conveyor. FANUC iRVision locates and tracks the product as it moves into the robot pick area, and two FANUC LR Mate robots each pick individual packages and correct for skew based on data from the iRVision system. The product accumulates onto a speedline conveyor where they are picked and placed by the gantry.

    Two types of shredded cheese bag are handled in this system – saddle bag product and individual 1 lb. bags of product. The GTL-UNI is equipped with both horizontal and vertical packing capability to handle both types of bag. First, the 1 lb. individual bag product is directly loaded into each case horizontally. The gantry places the saddle bag product into a bucket for vertical loading. Once the vertical buckets are full of products, they rotate and release the product into their cases in vertical pack patterns. The predetermined number of cases is sequenced into position on the servo driven case conveyor on 18-inch centers. Placement into the case is fully programmable through the multiple axes of the robot.

    Pearson Packaging Systems’ GTL-UNI Gantry Top Load Case Packer utilizes FANUC robots to offer flexible and reliable case packing capabilities for a wide range of pack patterns and product handling solutions.

    Published on Oct 9, 2015

    Engine cover assembly:

    FANUC America Authorized System Integrator TranTek Automation developed this fully automated multi-robotic solution for assembling cast aluminum engine covers.

    After an aluminum engine cover is loaded into the system and passes through a thread checking station, a FANUC M-710iC robot replaces it with a raw part and moves it to a laser marking station, then to a camera for reading the laser mark and grade mark. Next, the robot unloads the part to the first leak testing station. RTV silicone is dispensed onto the part at a FANUC LR Mate robot dispense station. The FANUC M-710iC picks the part and moves it to the next station where it places a steel baffle into the engine cover with its multi gripper, and the baffle is installed. After baffle installation the robot moves the part to a rivet forming station, and after that, a lubing station.

    Engine sensors are manually loaded onto a conveyor that moves the sensors into the system. With it’s multi-pick gripper, a FANUC M-710iC robot is used to pick and install the engine sensors. After the sensors are all in place, the part moves to a FANUC M-10iA robot where the sensor bolts are torqued into place, and ball-stud and other senor bolts are also installed. A FANUC M-710iC robot again transfers the part to a final leak test. After passing the final leak test, the part is moved to a station where a FANUC M-20iA robot awaits to install mounting bolts. With the mounting bolts installed and error-proofed, the FANUC M-710iC places the finished part onto an unload table.

    In addition to this custom automotive assembly system, TranTek Automation’s vast automated assembly experience encompasses a variety of industries including appliance, consumer products, and defense industries.
