FANUC America Supports Blessings in a Backpack at PACK EXPO

PR and Content Lead

At PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2019, September 23-25, FANUC America is proud to participate in "PACK for a Purpose: Robots Fighting Hunger," a special demonstration area inside the Robotics Zone at PACK EXPO. This area was designed to help promote Blessings in a Backpack, a non-profit organization that mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

FANUC America is helping to promote and support this special demonstration area by developing a robotic workcell that uses two FANUC CR-15iA collaborative robots to pack meals that are normally packed by volunteers. Thousands of meals will be packed at the Robotics Zone, benefitting children who face food insecurity across Las Vegas and elsewhere in the United States.

Get more with FANUC cobots

FANUC has more collaborative robots than any other robot brand, offering 6 cobot models to choose from, ranging from 4-35 kg in payload and 550-1813 mm in reach - That's also more payloads and more reach options than any other brand, meaning more applications for you.

FANUC cobots also offer more control options with ease-of-use in mind: Break away from traditional programming with FANUC Hand Guidance feature that allows you to teach your collaborative robot by leading it through paths and/or using it to lift heavy objects manually. Or program with new iHMI guides that provide step-by-step guidance for setting up a CR Series cobot and creating programs, along with other wizards/tutorials to help new users.

All this, combined with FANUC's intelligence-ready features including FANUC iRVision, 3D vision with FANUC 3D Area Sensor, and FANUC Force Sensors, allow FANUC cobot users to get more from their cobots.
