The CR-7iA, CR-7iA/L, and CR-4iA collaborative robots follow the launch of the larger CR-35iA collaborative robot. The CR-7iA offers a 717 mm reach and 7 kg payload; the CR-7iA/L offers the same payload with a longer 911 mm reach; and the CR-4iA has a 550 mm reach and 4 kg payload. FANUC based its design for the new compact collaborative robot series on the widely popular LR Mate-series of mini material handling robots. The new robots are ideal for small part sorting and assembly, inspection, machine tending and part delivery. All of FANUC’s collaborative robots are green to distinguish them from the standard yellow FANUC robots.

The new CR-7iA, CR-7iA/L, and CR-4iA collaborative robots provides a wide range of features and benefits, including:

Three compact variants offering 550-911 mm reach and 4-7 kg payload capabilities.

Floor, wall and ceiling mounting options.

Safety rated contact detection and familiar green exterior color.

Designed with the same high reliability as FANUC’s conventional robots.

Works in cooperation with a human operator in a variety of manufacturing applications.

Supports FANUC’s latest intelligent functions such as iRVision and Force Sensing.

Designed to meet the safety requirements of ISO 10218-1:2011 and RIA/ANSI R15.06-2012.

Operates with the small R-30iB Matecontroller, capable of running on 120 v.

The CR-35iA collaborative robot features six-axis articulation. A soft green cover protects workers who are in direct contact with the robot. Certified to meet the requirements of ISO 10218-1:2011 and RIA/ANSI R15.06-2012, FANUC’s CR-35iA collaborative robot can work in a variety of applications alongside human workers including: machine tending, handling heavy payloads that require lift assist devices or custom equipment, higher payload mechanical assembly, palletizing or packing, and tote or carton handling.
