Fanuc Robot Weld Positioners Offer Accuracy

Aug 30, 2013

Fanuc welding robots bring incredible amounts of accuracy and consistency to a production line. The Fanuc robot weld positioners help to maintain this accuracy and are able to consistently produce top quality products.


Weld­ing is a high­ly auto­mat­ed process in the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try because of the high lev­el of accu­ra­cy that weld­ing robots have attained. How­ev­er, the place­ment of the work piece is just as impor­tant as the robot weld­ing it. That is why robot weld posi­tion­ers are so important.

While Fanuc Robot­ics, a leader in robot­ics man­u­fac­tur­ing, uses the same robot­ic weld­ing posi­tion­ers as every­one else – turnkey, fer­ris wheel and sta­tion­ary tables – one of their most accu­rate posi­tion­ers is the robots themselves.

As men­tioned above, the accu­ra­cy of the work piece place­ment is just as impor­tant as the weld being made. With­out prop­er posi­tion­ing, the weld could be made in the wrong place on the met­al piece, which would ren­der the piece use­less and cost the com­pa­ny mon­ey for down­time and replacement.

Fanuc robot weld posi­tion­ing can be used for a vari­ety of weld­ing appli­ca­tions, includ­ing arc and spot weld­ing. The M series robots, when paired with a Fanuc R‑30iA con­troller, enable man­u­fac­tur­ers to achieve max­i­mum accu­ra­cy for their weld­ing projects, accord­ing to the Fanuc website.

These weld posi­tion­ing robots are con­trolled by an R‑30iA, which has its own advanced tech­nol­o­gy and design. This effi­cient design includes plug and play options unique to this par­tic­u­lar con­troller. The con­troller can also con­trol up to 40 axes, eas­i­ly allow­ing it to con­trol up to six 6‑axis robots, and one 4‑axis robot at a time.

The robot weld posi­tion­er from Fanuc also uses Fanuc soft­ware that enables an easy inte­gra­tion and seam­less, user-friend­ly appli­ca­tion, the web­site stated.

Robots​.com, a cer­ti­fied inte­gra­tor for Fanuc Robot­ics, has access to the entire Fanuc line, includ­ing their arc and spot weld­ing robots and their M series robot weld­ing posi­tion­ers.
