Welding with Arc Welding Robot and Table-Top Material Handling Robot

FANUC America Corporation offers its new ARC Mate 100iD arc welding robot that can be paired with the LR Mate 200iD/7L table-top material handling robot.

An example is two ARC Mate 100iD robots frame rail welding. First, a FANUC LR Mate 200iD/7L can load weld coupons to the work station for welding. Next, the new ARC Mate 100iD robots equipped with Laser Seam Finders can perform real-time seam sensing before welding the parts. Welded parts will be discarded and the cycle repeats.

FANUC ARC Mate 100iD Robots

The new ARC Mate 100iD welding robot is the first model in the next generation of ARC Mate robots. The ARC Mate 100iD offers higher productivity and precision compared to its predecessor due to its increased rigidity. With a 12 kg payload, it can handle the latest servo welding torches plus additional sensors or peripherals.

The new ARC Mate 100iD robot has a lightweight design that features internal cable routing and a curved J2 robot arm, minimizing interference with workpieces and fixtures and allowing more productivity in the work area. The new robot also features a longer reach and stroke - even in the backflip region - making it easier for customers to apply the robot while maximizing their available workspace - including larger parts or tooling.

ARC Mate 100iD Features and Benefits

  • Large motion range increases system flexibility.
  • Very rigid arm eliminates motion vibration, even at high speeds.
  • Supports FANUC's intelligent options, including: iRVision, Servo Positioners and iRTorchMate.
  • Smooth surface minimizes spatter collection.
  • Fully integrated welding hose pack and cable management system simplifies and speeds up integration, and improves cable life.
  • Large, hollow arm allows seamless integration of weld package dress-outs, third-party utilities and sensor cables.
  • An improved wire feeder installation creates a smaller, compact welding cell.

FANUC LR Mate 200iD Robots

The family of LR Mate 200iD robots is a versatile solution for a wide range of manufacturing operations that require access into small spaces. A very slim arm about the same size as a human arm, and a bottom cable exit option minimize interference with peripheral devices. The LR Mate 200iD robots offer a work envelope for both upright and invert mount installations. The LR Mate 200iD robots are also available with ISO Class 4 cleanroom and food-grade variants.

LR Mate 200iD Features and Benefits

  • Slim arm and compact footprint minimizes interference to peripheral devices in narrow spaces.
  • Available in three variations: standard, short and long arm.
  • Four to seven kg wrist load capacity with six-axis articulation.
  • Fastest joint axes speeds maximize system throughput.
  • Integrated 24VDC power, signal and air for easy end-of-arm-tool connection.
  • Integrated thru-arm cable option for iRVision, force sensing, Ethernet and auxiliary axes.
  • Flexible mounting (upright, invert, angle).
  • High rigidity and advanced servo technology enable smooth motion at high speeds.
  • Easy integration into machines.
  • Features light mechanical unit.
  • IP67 rating allows operation in factory environments with dust and oil mist.
