Reconditioned Fanuc M16i for Thermal Spraying

Project Summary

This particular supplier was looking for the right robot model to thermal spray aerospace industry parts. The robot had to meet specific payload, reach, and speed requirements.  

Application Goals:

  • Installation Versatility: Conserved floorspace with ceiling installation. Flexible 6-axis capability can accommodate many different shapes - concave, convex, angles, etc.  
  • Increase Speed: Industrial robot capable of spraying 30" per second (1800 surface inches per minute).
  • Work Envelope: This particular thermal spraying application required the robot to handle a part measuring at least 60".
  • Reliable Strength: Required load of 30lbs to accommodate the spray gun and hoses.
