FANUC America Demonstrates Distribution Order Fulfillment

FANUC America, the leading supplier of robotics, CNCs and ROBOMACHINEs will demonstrate distribution order fulfillment with the M-10iD/12 robot and the latest 3DV/400 Vision Sensor at Automate 2019 in Chicago, Booth #7540.

A FANUC M-10iD/12 robot using an overhead mounted 3DV/400 Vision Sensor picks random consumer products from a tote and places them into an outfeed tote.  Once the process is complete, the products and totes recirculate and the system repeats.  The system highlights the speed and accuracy of the new 3DV/400 Vision Sensor and its ability to detect and pick a variety of products, similar to applications found in warehousing and distribution.

FANUC 3DV/400 Vision Sensor

The 3DV/400 Vision Sensor is lightweight and can be used as a fixed or robot mounted 3D Vision camera. The 3DV/400 offers single snap 3D image acquisition enabling faster bin picking and applications such as line tracking. Compared to conventional 3D vision sensors it provides better acquisition of shiny parts.  It also offers a solution for glare caused by halation.  The 3DV/400 is part of FANUC’s iRVision system, a fully integrated and complete machine vision system for robot guidance and inspection and is available on all FANUC robots.   FANUC designs all of the hardware and software specifically for FANUC robots, providing customers solutions to meet their production needs.

FANUC M-10iD Robot Series

The M-10iD/12 and M-10iD/10L robots are the next generation of FANUC’s compact material handling robots.  The M-10iD robots are rated best-in-class for speed and repeatability.

A sleek and lightweight design features internal cable routing and a curved J2 robot arm, minimizing interference with work pieces and fixtures and allowing more productivity in the work area.  The robots also feature a long reach and stroke – even in the backflip region – making it easier for customers to apply the robot while maximizing their available workspace – including larger parts or tooling.
