Manufacturing can be a very dirty industry — in the most literal sense. Dust and grime can cling to machines in different areas, and that can cause mechanical problems and malfunctions. When manufacturers choose robots like the Fanuc R‑2000iB/210WE, these dust, dirt, and water issues become a thing of the past.
The R‑2000iB/210WE is designed to work in harsh conditions, which means this robot is perfect for you if your application has anything to do with water or wash processes. With an IP67 rating, meaning the robot arm is dust-proof and wash-proof, with the ability to withstand immersion in water up to 1m, and can still perform at high levels, even in the dirtiest of conditions. And, it can do so while maintaining a high level of reliability. The R 2000iB/210WE is typically used for high-payload applications, like spot welding, cutting, palletizing, and machine tending, to name a few. However, the R 2000iB/210WE can also be fitted with arc welding torches and other tooling to make it versatile enough to perform welding and material removal.
The R‑2000iB/210WE uses the R‑30iB controller, which allows for lower energy consumption and higher productivity. With the ability to outfit the R‑2000iB/210WE with all the accessories available through Fanuc, like iRVision software, the iR line of tooling software, Force Control to improve the robot’s path programming, and Learning Vibration Control to help the robot improve its productivity, there is no reason your company won’t be successful if you decide to invest.
