On June 19th, an interactive robot-artist, co-created by Rosbank and FANUC Russia, appeared in the Sokolniki park. It draws two pictures in an impressionistic style during two weeks and anyone can assist it in the process.
FANUC is releasing a new controller, the J-30iB, which represents a FANUC controller, including servo drives, but without mechanical unit and robot kinematics. FANUC offers the established standard controller as a platform for any automation solutions that have positioning requirements. Due to the proven FANUC robot technology, the J-30iB is highly flexible in any automation requirement and integration motion control.
This will particularly please users of the new S11 – the smallest production cylindrical grinding machine in the STUDER Portfolio: Now they can profit from the diverse advantages of the STUDER standard grinding cycles and the grinding software for offline programming StuderGRIND. Using the software, StuderWINfocus together with Fanuc control provides the basis for a flexible scope of use, which increases customer benefit significantly.
FANUC now offers three small, Collaborative Robots as part of its large industrial robot portfolio: CR-4iA, CR-7iA and the CR-7iA/L. These new additions to the range step into the footsteps of the larger CR-35iA green coloured Collaborative Robot, which still remains the strongest of its kind with a payload of 35kg.
Renishaw’s RESOLUTE absolute optical encoder is now compatible with the Yaskawa serial communications protocol in linear and rotary (angle) encoder formats. This allows RESOLUTE to be used with Yaskawa’s drives and controllers such as the Sigma 7 range of servo-products. Yaskawa equipment is regularly used in electronics assembly, Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing, factory automation and general motion control applications.
