Piab's end-of-arm-tool piCOBOT has had almost a decade of prosperity on the market for cobot equipment. Parts of the success relate to the unit itself—its compact yet user-friendly design and unparalleled precision.

And its capacity. Despite its limited weight, only 1.5 lbs [720 g], this EOAT is able to lift objects of up to 15.4 lbs [7kg]. In 2022, the success was followed by the even more powerful model piCOBOT L, with a lifting capacity of up to 135 lbs [6 kg].

Since their respective premieres, piCOBOT and piCOBOT L have been suited to fit several different cobot manufacturers—one of which being FANUC—partner from some previous adaptations.

"Following our certified piCOBOT and piCOBOT L adaptations for FANUC’s CR4/CR7 and LR Mate 200 robots, it was natural to apply the same matched setup on their CRX range. And it's exactly where we have landed today—true plug and play!" says Madeleine Sheikh, product manager of Piab Vacuum Automation division.

The new FANUC CRX configuration is a full package including a software plug-in, mechanical interface, specified cabling and compressed-air hosing, which as a whole will support safe and easy-to-use cobot interaction for the end customer. The setup is accompanied by a range of suction cups and accessories, ensuring tailor-made applications for any context.

"Our fresh piCOBOT and piCOBOT L packages are fully tested, approved and certified by FANUC as CRX devices and will be sold as such,” concludes Sheikh.
