Fanuc Work Cells – It’s all about the positioner


Work cells are a great way to get more “bang” for your buck. When a manufacturer uses a robotic work cell, like those made by Fanuc Robotics, they are getting equipment that works together to get an application accomplished. These Fanuc work cell designs are versatile and are able to work with the hundreds of Fanuc robot models available in the catalog.

Many of the robot workcells from Fanuc can be categorized by their positioners. There is a gantry cell, a ferris wheel cell, a manual turntable cell, a stationary table cell, a turntable cell and a track cell. Fanuc work cells have positioners that are able to move work pieces in and out of the robot work areas in different ways – some use a horizontal or vertical automatic turntable, others use a robot as the positioner and others are stationary with workers moving items in and out manually.

Fanuc work cells can be designed with new or used robots and will improve the productivity of your line. These work cells enhance the speed and accuracy of welding, material handling and material removal applications, while saving you on labor and production costs.
