The new CRX-10iA weighs significantly less than Fanuc’s CR series, where the lightest model was 48kg. The manufacturer did not specify the exact weight of the new generation of cobots. According to Fanuc, the new, lighter industrial robots can be used as handling units for driverless transport systems , amongst other uses.
The CRX-10iA can pick up loads of up to ten kilograms and is available in two versions, one with a reach of 1,249 mm and one with a reach of 1,418 mm. The cobot’s teach pendant can be programmed simply using a tablet computer. Additionally, the robots can be equipped with a vision system, making them suitable for autonomously loading and unloading containers or shelf systems.
