6 Reasons to Implement a FANUC CRX Into Your Manufacturing Line

Last year, Zeta Group Engineering became one of the first companies in North America to receive the recently released FANUC CRX-10iA/L collaborative robot (cobot). This new advancement in collaborative technology by FANUC boasts some incredible features which provides lean integrators like Zeta Group important advantages. After working with this robot for a few months now, we have compiled a list of 6 reasons to consider implementing cobots, specifically the FANUC CRX, into your manufacturing line.

1. Safety

  • The CRX comes standard with safety rated sensitive contact detection
  • It can be used in applications with additional safety sensors, scanners, and fencing for an extra level of safety

2. Easy Installation

  • Plug and play installation
  • Self-contained
  • No need for crane or lifting equipment when installing

3. Fanuc Customer Service

  • Quick response time – FANUC Technical Support Call Center is available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week
  • Access to FANUC’s CRC (customer resource center) website
  • Large inventory of spare parts all within the US

4. Increased Flexibility

  • Easy to make mobile by placing on a mobile robot cart
  • It can be moved to other lines and used for different applications fairly easily

5. Small Footprint

  • Fits easier into smaller spaces than larger industrial robots
  • Easier to mobilize for multiple line usage

6. Cobots Help in the Shortage of Workers

  • Collaborative robots are able to work with existing employees
  • It has been estimated that the skills gap may leave about 2.4 million positions unfilled through 2028, cobots may help with that
