Fanuc expands range of CRX collaborative robots

Fanuc Corporation, the global automation leader now offers 11 cobot model variations.

Fanuc has introduced 3 new CRX collaborative robots with payloads from 5kg – 25kg.

The new Fanuc CRX-5iA collaborative robot, Fanuc CRX-20iA/L collaborative robot and Fanuc CRX-25iA collaborative robot, the latest additions to its popular CRX series that includes the CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L collaborative robots. 

Fanuc’s CRX cobots are designed for every type of manufacturer – small or large – looking to expand their capabilities and overcome labour issues. With the addition of these new models, Fanuc offer the most extensive range of easy-to-use cobots available on the market today.

The latest CRX cobots complement Fanuc’s existing line of CR and CRX cobots that now total 11 cobot model variations to handle payloads from 4 to 35 kg.

The rollout of the new CRX-5iA, CRX-20iA/L and CRX-25iA cobots, which provide a 5 kg, 20 kg, and 25 kg payload respectively, follows the CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L cobot models. These both feature a 10 kg payload and a reach of 1249 mm and 1418 mm respectively.

The CRX models combined with Fanuc’s CR series of green cobots extends Fanuc’s ability to help more companies looking to automate with cobots.

Fanuc’s range of CRX cobots are safe, easy-to-use, reliable and a versatile solution for a wide range of applications, including inspection, machine load/unload, packing, palletising, sanding, welding, and more.

The CRX cobots can detect external forces in the workspace, stopping safely when making contact with a person or object. This technology allows the CRX to work safely alongside people without the need for expensive guarding.

Most cobots have a lightweight and compact design – but the Fanuc CRX cobots offer so much more including industrial ruggedness and no maintenance for up to eight years.

In addition, interactive programming enables users to teach points using hand guidance or a tablet interface with drag and drop icons. The series supports several of Fanuc’s advanced features including iRVision, and is a perfect fit for any company looking to achieve higher efficiencies – even those that have yet to use their first robot.

Fanuc’s family of CRX cobots offer the same intelligence and reliability as the yellow robots have for 40 years.
