Echternach — The new long-arm ARC Mate 100iD/8L and ARC Mate 120iD/12L welding robots have arrived. The latest additions to FANUC’s extensive range of welding solutions, the new long-arm models offer customers a bigger working envelope, outstanding axis speeds and ultimate precision.
Ideally suited for working in compact robotic cells, the slimline ARC Mate 100iD/8L occupies a small footprint and can be installed upside down or angle mounted for even more flexibility.
The new ARC Mate 120iD/12L robot features outstanding axis speeds and ultimate precision within its class. The highly versatile robot can weld large parts thanks to its very long horizontal stroke. To further maximise flexibility and open up a new range of application possibilities, it can also carry additional tools and torches weighing up to 12 kg.
Designed specifically for welding applications, the ARC Mate 120iD/12L and ARC Mate 100iD/8L come with a fully integrated hose pack. For easy and reliable routing of sensor or camera cables, air pipes and other utilities, services are routed through the robot’s hollow arm, wrist and body. This fully eliminates the need for external cables and prevents the chance of interference occurring with peripheral equipment. Internal routing makes integration easier and extends cable life, reducing the risk of downtime.
To prevent the build-up of spatter and make maintenance easier, all ARC Mate 100iD and 120iD series robots have smooth surfaces and very few exposed bolts. Like all FANUC robots, the ARC Mate 100iD/8L and ARC Mate 120iD/12L support various intelligent functions, and come with FANUC’s proprietary vision system, FANUC iRVision, built in. What is more, a broad range of software options, as well as dedicated safety features such as FANUC Dual Check Safety can also be added to the robots. The ROBOGUIDE offline simulation PC tool helps optimise cell design and improve engineering processes.
