Laser cutting with Fanuc robots

Jan 4, 2013

When your production line depends on accuracy, look no further than laser cutting robots by Fanuc. Fanuc is a leader in the industrial robotic business and has several laser cutting robots available to perform arc welding and spot welding processes. These robots have a smaller footprint and help the manufacturer increase their overall accuracy and efficiency.


There are many appli­ca­tions that depend on a robot’s capa­bil­i­ty to be extreme­ly accu­rate. When com­pa­nies need pre­ci­sion in an appli­ca­tion like laser cut­ting, many turn to a robot­ics leader like Fanuc Robot­ics, a robot com­pa­ny with a rep­u­ta­tion for sys­tem pre­ci­sion and repeata­bil­i­ty. Fanuc also has sev­er­al laser cut­ting robots that can per­form arc weld­ing and spot weld­ing process­es as well, which makes them even more ver­sa­tile for the manufacturer.

There are sev­er­al rea­sons that robot­ic laser cut­ting with Fanuc robots is attrac­tive to man­u­fac­tur­ers. Fanuc robot laser cut­ters are flex­i­ble. They are capa­ble of three-dimen­sion­al cut­ting, as opposed to oth­er machin­ery that may only be capa­ble of cut­ting on a ver­ti­cal or hor­i­zon­tal plane. These Fanuc robot­ic laser cut­ting sys­tems have a small­er foot­print than oth­er machin­ery as well, which could be a con­tribut­ing fac­tor for automa­tion, espe­cial­ly when a man­u­fac­tur­er has lim­it­ed space to inte­grate the robot sys­tem.

Robot laser cut­ting sys­tems from Fanuc are typ­i­cal­ly able to cut alu­minum and steel parts that are between 0.02 inch­es and 0.2 inch­es thick. This kind of ver­sa­til­i­ty for cut­ting thick­ness­es allows man­u­fac­tur­ers to use the Fanuc robot­ic laser cut­ter on sev­er­al dif­fer­ent types of prod­ucts. By increas­ing the reusabil­i­ty of the sys­tem, man­u­fac­tur­ers not only save mon­ey on pro­duc­tion, but also on equip­ment costs.

All com­pa­nies con­sid­er­ing the inte­gra­tion of laser cut­ting robot­ics from Fanuc should take time to ful­ly train all those pro­gram­ming or work­ing with the robot. When work­ers are well trained on a sys­tem, it only fur­ther improves the lev­el of production.

Where can you obtain the right train­ing for your sys­tem? Robots​.com, of course! All of the sys­tems that we build and sell come with free train­ing at our Mar­i­on, Ohio facil­i­ty for up to three employ­ees from the customer’s com­pa­ny. Cus­tomers are invit­ed to come in and get to know their robot sys­tem until they are com­fort­able with the appli­ca­tion process.

Robots​.com pro­vides solu­tions from Fanuc Robot­ics. Because of this part­ner­ship, we are able to obtain the right new or used Fanuc robot sys­tems for our cus­tomers for the right price. If you are inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about automat­ing your facil­i­ty with Robots​.com, con­tact us today online or at 8777626881.
