Echternach, Luxembourg, June 7th, 2017 – The new ARC Mate 100iD welding robot is the first model of the new ARC Mate series, succeeding the well-known and highly rated predecessor ARC Mate 100iC/12.
As of September 2017, the ARC Mate 100iD can be ordered and will be publicly displayed at these two trade shows in Germany: “EMO” in Hannover and “Schweissen & Schneiden” in Düsseldorf.
“The new ARC Mate 100iD welding robot reaches remarkable productivity improvements for clients thanks to its superior motion performance, decreased installation efforts and ownership costs due to its seamless integration with weld process equipment. Additionally, it can be operated intuitively from its new graphical user interface”, says Matteo Ferrari, Arc Welding & Laser Robot Product Manager at FANUC Europe.
The ARC Mate 100iD reaches the highest axis speed and precision in its class. Especially for narrow work spaces, or when being mounted upside down, this Arc Welder gives a full working envelope, reach and stroke for higher production throughput.
It has a fully integrated welding hosepack and cable management where the cables are lead through the robot’s hollow arm, wrist and body. It allows the sensor cables and air pipes to be routed along together the welding hosepack, eliminating external cables interfering against peripheral equipment. This leads to minimized integration efforts, and an optimized cable life span.
Through the improved wire feeder mounting, and the slim robot profile and footprint, the ARC Mate 100iD is the ideal choice for designing compact welding cells. The payload remains at 12kg as the best reference in its class.
Like all FANUC robots, the ARC Mate 100iD supports many intelligent functions including built-in vision systems such as the FANUC developed iRVision system. Additional seam tracking sensors, cameras, gripping devices are also compatible with the Arc Welder model. Furthermore, a broad range of Arc Welding software options as well as dedicated safety functions, e.g. the DCS are possible to connect. The ROBOGUIDE WeldPRO offline simulation PC tool helps boost the cell design and improves its engineering.
