Acieta (Waukesha, WI) announced the FastARC CW, which includes a FANUC CRX-10iA/L 6-axis robot mounted on a mobile platform to move quickly between production areas.
The system is compatible with Fronius, Lincoln Electric and Miller welding units.
Intuitive software and a touchscreen interface make the FastARC CW simple to set up and operate so it can be managed by a less skilled worker.
One person can operate several FastARC cobots simultaneously.
As a collaborative robot, it has benefits over a traditional robotic welding system. People can work safely side-by-side loading and unloading parts while the cobot welds.
If the low-speed arm bumps into a person or object, the cobot stops immediately.
No safety fencing is needed, which saves on costs and floor space.
