Fanuc's new small collaborative robots

Introducing the Fanuc range of small collaborative robots: the Fanuc CR-4iA, Fanuc CR-7iA and Fanuc CR-7iA/L as a new variation of the “green robot” CR series, following the 35kg high payload Fanuc CR-35iA, which allow for collaborative operation with human operators without safety fences.

The Fanuc CR-4iA is a small collaborative robot with 4kg payload and the Fanuc CR-7iA, and CR-7iA/L have a 7kg payload. They allow for collaborative operation with human operators because they do not need safety fences, and the compact size enables close proximity location to existing manufacturing processes.

The robots support ceiling and wall mount, so that they can operate in a wider motion range without disturbing an operators’ work space.

It is easy to relocate a robot due to their light weight, and to realize a flexible layout using iRVision. The small collaborative robot applies to various manufacturing processes such as small electrical parts transfer and assembly.

Fanuc collaborative robots stop immediately and safely when they come in contact with a human operator. They are certified to meet the requirements of international standard ISO 10218-1.

Fanuc collaborative robots are green, making them instantly recognizable as a safety robot.

The inside of the green Fanuc robots is the same as the yellow Fanuc robots, maintaining the high reliability, and making available the latest intelligent functions such as iRVision and force sensor.
