Vision systems are more accessible than one might think. Fanuc's new R-2000iB
series uses its vision capabilities and the latest controller for precise, coordinated movement.
showcased this winning combination at the 2007 International Robots and Vision Show. The demo included a new R-2000iB
robot equipped with an R-J3i
C controller and i
used the robot to select curved parts from a jumble and place them in a container. With i
RVision, robots use a laser vision
sensor to "see" the location and orientation of parts. This easy-to-use 3D vision system is fully integrated with the controller. The only additional equipment needed is a camera and a cable.
The intelligent R-2000iB
series includes standard 165kg payload, large payload, and rack-installation robots. They are multi-use versatile robots. The new
C controller simplifies floorplans and monitoring. It can coordinate movements of up to 10 robots.
