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.
