New robotic arc welding solutions

Collaborative Robots for Arc Welding

FANUC's collaborative arc welding robots are - at their core - made of our current industry-leading ARC Mate robot family. By infusing collaborative operation, FANUC now offers our users the ability to work more closely with our cobots. Our arc welding cobots come with FANUC’s proven, easy to use ARC Tool Software designed to improve your bottom line by reducing programming time. The easy-to-program interface supports simple applications, but also provides you with the ability to utilize FANUC advanced features such as Weaving, iRVision, Seam Tracking, TAST and Multi-pass.

Arc Welding Robots for Additive

FANUC’s arc welding robot family supports newer applications like additive manufacturing. All of the arc welding robots in our ARC Mate Series are up to the task of enabling our customers to add flexibility and efficiency to their additive manufacturing processes. Easy offline program generation, along with the ability to easily import 3rd party paths, enables customers to quickly take solid models from the digital world and make them come to life.


Simple setup and programming makes it easy to get started

Just connect and weld

FANUC robots can effortlessly integrate with almost all weld packages, allowing quick torch, wire feeder and dresspack installations as well as an easy to use welding power source interface thanks to in-built libraries. Users can simply select and weld.

Easy programming

ArcTool software provides an easy to understand user interface, using common welding terms.  Robot programs can be developed quickly to get the robot into production with minimal downtime.  Common programming language with all FANUC robots makes it easy for all plant personnel to work with any robot.

Seamless integration of auxiliary motors and positioners

Control of additional FANUC motors creates a system with more capability while maintaining easy setup and programming.  Welding positioners can be programmed to move independently or coordinated with the robot motion to optimize welding speed and quality.

Multiple weld processes

Select the weld process that fits your application with the confidence that the ARC Mate robot can handle MIG (GMAW), TIG (GTAW), Plasma (PAW) or Laser welding.  FANUC works with you to create low spatter welding solutions to give a clean finish on your parts.


Smart functions for intelligent robotic arc welding

Use sensors to adjust programs

When welding inconsistent production parts, optional sensors will adjust the weld program to maintain weld quality.  Options such as Touch Sensing, Through Arc Seam Tracking and laser vision will add seam finding, seam tracking or joint measurement capabilities.  Adaptive capability to adjust the weld parameters can be used to optimize weld size based on sensor feedback.

Arc welding with vision

Integrated vision allows robots to recognize and locate objects, weld seams and part features, as well as performing pre-weld checks or inspections. This easy-to-use plug-and-play technology helps improve productivity for any welding application.

Automatic TCP alignment

Our intelligent arc welding robots can automatically adjust Tool Center Point (TCP) during torch maintenance to maximize system uptime and increase productivity by maintaining consistent weld seams. 

MultiARM technology

Use a single teach pendant to program multiple robot arms with easy motion control for welding and handling to ensure constant welding speeds and coordinated motion between all arms.


Strong arc welding robots – big benefits

Highest payload in its class

FANUC robots offer both the strength and reliability to handle all arc welding applications, including submerged arc welding, tandem torches and multiple welding processes on the same robot.  Additional payload capability allows other peripheral equipment such as sensors or grippers for material handling tasks.

Even better than a human hand

Robots combine excellent freedom of movement with extremely high repeatability. Slim wrists and arms are not only capable of accessing narrow spaces, but are also strong enough to carry heavy torches and welding utilities.

The benefits of a hollow wrist

Hollow wrist design routes the welding torch through the robot arm to reduce wear and tear on the expensive welding cables. The through-arm design also protects the cabling and allows offline programming without having to simulate cable placement.

A narrow space specialist

Slim wrist robots are well suited for arc welding processes involving hard-to-access spaces. They are used extensively in TIER 1 manufacturing for car axle, bracket, seat and exhaust welding, as well as to produce goods such as beams and cranes and base business goods such as tanks, tubes and pipes, etc.

No rail axis required for large parts

The M-710iC/12L is the longest reach hollow arm robot available on the market.  This reach makes it possible to weld very large parts and eliminates the need for a rail axis in arc welding applications.


You don’t have to buy it to try it

WeldPRO trial software

Using WeldPRO offline simulation software, you can give the robot a test drive before you buy.  Test different size robots with your part model to simulate robot motion and calculate cycle time.  Optimize the workcell size and layout for your applications.

Easy offline programming in WeldPRO

CAD to PATH functionality allows you to import CAD drawings in just one click and can be modified offline, even while robots are working. Torch vs. fixture, automatic collision avoidance and weld cycle optimizations make arc welding applications even more efficient.
