Robots Producing Their Own Controllers
FANUC makes several controllers for its vast line of industrial robot models. These units are produced completely by automated robotics systems. Every step from product testing to quality control is performed by FANUC industrial robots.
These FANUC robots produce the RJ2, RJ3, RJ3iB, RJ3iC, R30iA and the R30iB controller parts. These FANUC controllers are the nerve centers that control industrial robots as they weld, assemble, package and cut, along with all the other applications that they can perform. The controllers can control differing amounts of robots and motions, depending on the model.
The R30iB is the newest FANUC controller model. There are several software options for this controller, including ArcTool, DispenseTool, HandlingTool and RemovalTool, just to name a few. These industrial robot-built controllers are the brains behind the brawn.
It’s kind of a circle, really – robots run by controllers that are making robot parts for controllers that will run other robots that might make controller parts that will run other robots…and so on, and so forth.
These FANUC controllers have numerous advantages and differences. RobotWorx, a certified integrator for FANUC Robotics, along with others like Motoman and KUKA, carries the full line of FANUC controllers for all your robotic needs.
Our engineers and designers will work with you to build your FANUC robot or system, along with picking the right FANUC robot-built controller. For more information, contact RobotWorx today online or at 740-251-4312.
And don’t worry, just because these robots are building their own controllers doesn’t mean that they will start replicating themselves…or does it?
