ROCHESTER HILLS — Fanuc Robotics America Wednesday released a YouTube video, www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4D43MynblE, featuring coordinated robot motion with its Constant Path software feature.
The video showcases a FANUC M-10iA robot rotating a basketball while a FANUC ARC Mate 120iC/10L robot follows the lines of the basketball with a marble.
“Constant Path ensures coordination between multiple robots, simplifies teaching and reduces cycle time,” said Jason Tsai, general manager of product development at Fanuc. “This is a major benefit for manufacturers looking to respond quickly to their customer’s needs to deliver quality products on time.”
In the video, the robots work in coordinated motion and are able to resume the same path after the hold/emergency stop button is pressed.
“In this unique demonstration using the basketball and the marble, it’s obvious that the robots are able to maintain the same path, location and orientation regardless of static or dynamic speed override changes,” added Tsai. “Fanuc leads the industry in providing accurate, reliable and consistent performance.”
Fanuc designs, engineers and manufactures industrial robots and robotic systems for a wide range of applications including arc and spot welding, material handling (machine tending, picking, packing, palletizing), material removal, assembly, paint finishing and dispensing. The company also provides application-specific software, controls, vision products, and complete support services. More than 100,000 FANUC robots are installed in the Americas, and 240,000 worldwide.
