FANUC introduces its CR-7iA collaborative robot providing a payload of 7 kg. This robot’s mechanics correspond to those of the company’s LR Mate series, comprising a smaller version of the six-axis CR-35iA, which has a 35-kg payload and a reach of 1,813 mm. The CR-7iA is designed for material handling without the need for a protective barrier; it is able to work side-by-side with personnel with safety functions. Applications include strenuous, routine jobs along with handling tasks at workstations with unfavorable ergonomic conditions, the company says.
