The amount of reach a robot has is important when deciding what robot you are going to get for your application. That is why FANUC Robotics has developed an entire series of long arm options for customers, including the FANUC ArcMate 120iC/12L long arm robot. This robot has the ability to reach 2009mm, almost 200mm more than the regular version of the ArcMate 120iC. This robot isn’t just about the reach though. It is also about the technology.

There are many robots that work throughout the production line. Many of them assemble items, weld them and paint them, while others, like FANUC polishing robots, are used for end-of-line applications. These end-of-line robotic polishing systems from FANUC Robotics have an accuracy and consistency that remains unmatched by human hands. Accuracy is extremely important when it comes to the polishing application.

Coating is a very important part of almost any production process that deals with metal. Coating robots, like those available from ABB Robotics, are able to spray coatings all over metal work pieces to ensure that those pieces will not rust or be altered by any other outside contaminates during the life of the product. ABB coating robotic systems have two attributes that any good coating robot needs to have – precision and speed.
