Expect Top Quality Welds and Faster Speeds with the Arc Mate 100iC Series

May 9, 2016

The ARC Mate 100iC series provides production lines with more freedom as they can take over the dangerous and tedious tasks, enabling workers to complete other valuable tasks. For instance, the 100iC series can be loading on one side of the work cell while the other is being welded. If your production line is seeking improved quality, reduced production costs, and improved safety, then integrate an ARC Mate 100iC robot today.

Fanuc ArcMate 100iC 7L

Auto­mat­ed weld­ing offers busi­ness­es more free­dom as their work­ers can com­plete mul­ti­ple tasks at once. For instance, it allows for the load­ing of one side of a work cell simul­ta­ne­ous­ly as the oth­er side is weld­ing. This ulti­mate­ly increas­es the speed of the weld­ing appli­ca­tion while also shield­ing work­ers from dan­ger­ous weld­ing fumes and glare.

When decid­ing to auto­mate and choose which robot is best for your arc weld­ing needs, con­sid­er the Arc Mate 100iC series. This is one of the many great robots avail­able in Fanuc’s arc weld­ing robot line and offers a vari­ety of options for man­u­fac­tur­ers that desire an increase in speed for their weld­ing appli­ca­tion. The Arc Mate 100iC robots are exclu­sive­ly designed to cre­ate a one-of-a-kind qual­i­ty weld, reduce the costs for pro­duc­tion, and improve the safe­ty of your workplace.

Increased Speed:

The 100iC offers a large work area, com­plex tool­ing, and the speed. It has the high­est motion per­for­mance for its class, reduc­ing the cycle time by up to 15%. The rigid arm com­bined with advanced ser­vo tech­nol­o­gy enable max­i­mum speed and accel­er­a­tion performance.

Enhanced Wrist:

The wrist load capac­i­ty in this series allows sus­tain­abil­i­ty of var­i­ous torch tools such as sen­sor units, ser­vo torch, and tan­dem torch. The wrist is also slim, allow­ing for entry into small open­ings thus enabling oper­a­tion in nar­row spaces and high den­si­ty installation. 

In addi­tion, the wrist is hol­low allow­ing the gas lines, weld torch cables, air­lines, and wire feed­er motor cable to be pro­tect­ed and locat­ed inside of the robot arm. This pro­vides excel­lent cable man­age­ment, easy main­te­nance, torch cable inte­gra­tion, and sim­pler set up time and results in high­er per­for­mance welding. 

Decrease Floor Space and Increased Savings: 

Not only will the Arc Mate 100iC save time with increased speeds, eas­i­er cable main­te­nance, and reduced set­up time, but it will also save mon­ey since it requires lit­tle floor space. The Arc Mate 100iC sports a slim design that allows for clos­er inte­gra­tion with mul­ti­ple robots since it does not take up much floor space.

Mul­ti­ple Soft­ware Options: 

The Fanuc Arc Mate 100iC is com­pat­i­ble with major brands of weld­ing equip­ment inter­fac­ing it with most types of ser­vo-dri­ven or index­ing posi­tion­ers. In addi­tion, there are intel­li­gent soft­ware options avail­able that add sight, sense, sim­u­la­tion abil­i­ty, and faster pro­gram­ming. These options (iRvi­sion, col­li­sion detec­tion, and coor­di­nat­ed motion) help com­pen­sate for pro­duc­tion gaps and ease the switch of tool­ing or fix­ture changes ulti­mate­ly sav­ing time and mon­ey on adjust­ments, fur­ther test­ing, and accidents.

A Vari­ety of Options with the 100iC Series: 

In order to help pro­duce the per­fect auto­mat­ed weld­ing solu­tion, Fanuc offers sev­er­al ver­sions of the ARC Mate100iC. The fol­low­ing mod­els offer 6 axes and floor, upside down, and angle mount­ing, in addi­tion to the fol­low­ing alternatives: 

  • The Arc Mate 100iC has 1,420 mm reach, 10 kg, and a 1,066 mm stroke. 
  • The Arc Mate 100iC/​10s is a short arm ver­sion of the robot, designed for greater dex­ter­i­ty and less inter­fer­ence with oth­er robots, posi­tion­ers, and periph­er­als. It has a 10kg pay­load and offers cycle times of +/-0.05mm repeata­bil­i­ty, and a 1098 reach. 
  • The Arc Mate100iC/​12s is a heavy duty weld­ing robot as it offers a 12 kg pay­load, +/-0.05mm repeata­bil­i­ty, and a 1098 reach. 
  • The Arc Mate 100iC/​6L has a 6kg pay­load, 1632, and a +/-0.1mm, and either a floor, ceil­ing, angle, and wall mount (no upside down mount available).
  • The Arc Mate 100iC/​7L is sure to increase accu­ra­cy as it offers 7 kg pay­load, +/-0.08mm, and a 1632 reach. 
  • The Arc Mate 100iC/​8L has the longest reach at 2028mm, a 8kg pay­load, and a +/-0.08mm repeatability. 

Con­troller Options: 

The Fanuc ARC Mate 100iC robots have the option of using the RJ3iC and R‑30iA con­trollers, both of which help to enhance this effi­cient robot by allow­ing for flex­i­ble pro­gram­ming for appli­ca­tion spe­cif­ic configurations. 

The R‑30iA reduces cycle time with a reduced accel­er­a­tion and decel­er­a­tion rate for theARC Mate 100iC. The R‑30iA con­troller fea­tures vibra­tion con­trol, 2D vision, and an effi­cient cool­ing sys­tem. The cool­ing sys­tem allows for easy inte­gra­tion since mul­ti­ple con­trollers can be placed side by side with­out overheating. 

The intel­li­gent RJ3iC con­troller adds opti­miza­tion and pre­cise con­trol for up to 40 axes of motion, includ­ing up to 4 robots. It offers increased acceleration/​deceleration times and a decreased vibra­tion through a new vibra­tion con­trol func­tion. Inte­gra­tion is stream­lined through the addi­tion of iRVi­sion with­out addi­tion­al hard­ware and programming.
