Taking Care of the Heavy Stuff – The Fanuc CR-35iA

May 13, 2015

The Fanuc CR-35ia is a collaborative robot that can lift up to 35 kg and does not need any safety barriers between it and human workers. The CR35ia has sensors that enable it to stop whenever it gets too close to a human worker. It can complete a wide range of applications in the automotive, packaging, distribution, and metal working industries.


Human work­ers have been work­ing with robots for years, but there is usu­al­ly a bar­ri­er between them when the robot is per­form­ing its appli­ca­tions. Fanuc decid­ed to give work­ers a chance to improve their team­work with the robots, intro­duc­ing the Fanuc CR-35iA, one of the first col­lab­o­ra­tive indus­tri­al robots on the market.

A col­lab­o­ra­tive robot is a robot that is equipped with sen­sors that allows it to stop when it comes into the vicin­i­ty of a human work­er, pro­tect­ing the work­er from harm, and cut­ting down on the need of safe­ty fenc­ing and oth­er bar­ri­ers. While Fanuc is only one of the com­pa­nies delv­ing into this new col­lab­o­ra­tive robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy, they have pro­duced the first heavy lift­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive robot. The CR35iA has the abil­i­ty to lift up to 35kg, mak­ing it the strongest col­lab­o­ra­tive robot in the industry.

The Fanuc CR-35iA can col­lab­o­rate with work­ers on a vari­ety of repet­i­tive appli­ca­tions for a wide range of indus­tries, includ­ing the auto­mo­tive, pack­ag­ing, dis­tri­b­u­tion, and met­al­work­ing indus­tries, accord­ing to Fanuc. The robot is also equipped with Fanuc vision sen­sors and 3D area sen­sors to make it more accu­rate and effec­tive dur­ing operation.

As men­tioned above, one of the great­est things about the CR-35iA is the abil­i­ty for it to work hand in hand with human work­ers, with­out need­ing fenc­ing. Not only is the robot out­fit­ted with sen­sors to stop oper­a­tion, they also have a soft cov­er over their met­al shell. This means that even if a robot comes in con­tact with a human, the impact force will be reduced, pro­tect­ing the human work­er from seri­ous injury.

Just like oth­er robots in the Fanuc robot line, this robot also has a high lev­el of reli­a­bil­i­ty and dura­bil­i­ty, giv­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers the same qual­i­ty they expect from the Fanuc name.
