For the last forty years, FANUC Robotics has been leading the way as one of the top innovators in the robotics industry. The development of their latest arc welding robot, the FANUC ArcMate 0iA, is just another accomplishment for the company. Not only is the 0-iA a new model in the already reputable ArcMate line, but it is also has a lightweight and compact design. What are some of the advantages to purchasing the FANUC Arc Mate 0 iA? Well, one of the first advantages is the cost.
FANUC, a world leader in robotic automation, has been at the forefront of parallel-linked robot technology for many years. That tradition continues with the M-2iA series, a series of four medium parallel robots that are designed for applications like high-speed picking and assembly. There are four models available in the M2iA series, including the M-2iA/3S, the M-2iA/6H, the M-2iA/3SL and the M-2iA/6HL.
Automation of the production process is essential as products and manufacturing processes become continually more complex.  The manufacturing environment demands higher production rates than ever before.  Manufactured goods require repeatability, reliability, and consistency, all of which have contributed to the growing demand for automation in manufacturing.
Several characteristics affect clamp performance and productivity.  The real cost of clamps used in end-of-arm tooling is dependent on factors that have a major effect on production.  While a clamp’s original price is important, other variables affect production and reduce the cost of ownership. First, the time of delivery affects the cost of clamps.  Delivery times are essential in any company since they are passed on to the company’s customers.
Manufacturers are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve their processes and increase productivity.  Robotic automation has been proven to be beneficial due to higher machine uptimes, increased flexibility, and process consistency.  Employees are removed from potentially hazardous environments, and manufacturers can benefit from a decreased number of human workers.  Robotic automation enables machining shops to produce more parts with less capital and labor.
Robotic simulation and off-line programming save time and money when designing a workcell.  The integrator or end-user should take the opportunity to analyze how a workcell will behave before he invests his valuable time and money on equipment.  Simulation and off-line programming permit the integrator to analyze multiple scenarios of a workcell before mistakes in designing the cell can be made.
Wooden wind-up dolls appeared in Japan as early as the 17th century.  Japan’s interest in robots has continued ever since.  A machine that wore a kimono and served tea is especially famous, as it is considered one of the world’s first robots.  It carried a bowl of tea on a tray to a guest, waited until the guest replaced the bowl, and then returned to the host.
As technology progresses, rising labor costs and increased competition demand the need for automation.  However, several important factors must be considered before automating a factory or assembly process. The return on investment should be the first factor to consider when automating a new or current process.
Since its commencement in 1926, Toyota has expanded its business domains to include textile machinery, automobiles, material handling equipment, electronics, and logistics solutions.  To get there, Toyota adopted the concept of “lean manufacturing,” which emphasizes increasing value while decreasing waste.  The customer determines what is valuable, while waste is defined as overproduction, waiting, defective parts, etc.
Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing refers to computer software that is used to both design and manufacture products.  CAD/CAM applications are used for both designing a product and programming manufacturing processes like machining.  The CAD software creates models and assemblies that are used by the CAM portion to generate tool paths that drive the machines to turn the designs into physical parts.
