Fanuc says its CR-35iA collaborative robot uses integrated vision technology, iRVision, to ensure safety by automatically stopping when the robot touches a human operator. This removes the need for safety fences, a previous requirement for all industrial robots, increasing production efficiencies and enabling a higher level of automation, claims the company.
The company says it can be used across a variety of manufacturing industries and can perform both simple and complex tasks lifting payloads of up to 35kg.
