For Immediate Release

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI(NOV. 4, 2021) – FANUC America, the leading supplier of CNCs, robotics, and ROBOMACHINEs will feature its latest CRX collaborative robot and unique factory automation solutions at Westec, Nov. 16-18 in Long Beach, CA in booth #1317.  

Easy-to-Use CRX Collaborative Robot  

Visitors to FANUC’s booth at Westec will have the opportunity to try the CRX-10iA/L cobot’s easy hand guidance and intuitive tablet programming features. 

In addition, a FANUC CRX-10iA/L will demonstrate loading and unloading a lathe.   The demonstration will highlight the CRX cobot’s industrial strength, precision and flexibility.  

FANUC’s CRX collaborative robot is an easy-to-use and flexible solution for a variety of applications, including machine tending, inspection, welding and more. Built-in sensors on each axis can allow the CRX cobot to work safely alongside people without the need for expensive guarding.  In addition, the CRX can operate for eight years maintenance-free, which will help companies reduce costs and maximize productivity.

The CRX cobot offers the same high level of performance that all FANUC products are known for including the latest technologies and world-renowned reliability.  It supports several of FANUC’s advanced features including iRVision®, and is a perfect fit for any application where collaborative robots can help customers achieve higher efficiencies.  Also, interactive programming enables users to teach points using hand guidance or a new tablet interface with drag and drop icons.    

CRX Online Training

CRX e-Learning training modules help customers get their employees quickly up to speed. There are currently seven online tutorials that cover a product overview with features, unboxing and setup, three programming courses, and two iRVision courses.  Additional learning modules will be added in the coming months.

Simply register on the site to start the free online CRX training modules and learn how easy it is to setup and use the CRX in a very short timeframe.   

Easy to Integrate Peripheral Devices with the CRX

FANUC’s CRX site includes a list of approved CRX device suppliers for cobot EOAT devices, grippers, accessories and plugins.  The growing list of partners include:  ATI, CKD, IGUS, JMC Motion, Leoni, OnRobot, Schmalz, Schunk, Soft Robotics, Zimmer and many more.  It’s easy to connect third-party devices to the CRX, so customers will be able to get up and running right away using the devices that work for their application. 

FANUC welcomes industrial robot device suppliers interested in having their products or solutions become part of the FANUC approved devices program for the CRX collaborative robots.    

CRX Applications

Since its introduction, the CRX cobot continues to take on more applications including inspection, palletizing, machine tending, vision guided pick and place, sanding and welding.  Watch the application videos and learn how the CRX can help customers achieve higher manufacturing efficiency.

Factory Automation Demonstrations

Westec visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a new and exciting way to see part production.  Our Visual Twin demonstration highlights FANUC’s end-to-end digitalization solutions for the machine shop.  By seamlessly working with various machine tool builders as well as Mastercam and ModuleWorks, FANUC’s Visual Twin is an exact software replica of real CNC machine tools. The Visual Twin will display a virtualized 5-axis machine tool cutting a part, which mirrors the real-world machine’s behavior.

Also from the Factory Automation division, we are demonstrating the seamless integration and high performance of FANUC’s CNC and servo systems in a Laguna iQ desktop CNC router. Equipped with a complete FANUC CNC system, the display shows how well the machine, control and drives all work together to bring unbeatable value in reliability and accuracy.  The simulator may also be used for learning servo parameter setup and enhance servo motor tuning skills.
