FANUC products at Fakuma 2017

News 10.10.2017

In recent years, injection moulders have clearly shown an increasing interest in all-electric injection moulding machines with particularly economic energy balance as well as in fully automatic production systems. FANUC will exhibit three of its all-electric ROBOSHOT injection moulding machines at Facuma 2017 (Friedrichshafen, Germany), which will take users’ current requirements seamlessly into consideration.

A 150-ton ROBOSHOT Alpha-S 150iA in a fully automatic production cell shows precision parts with light conductor in a two-component injection moulding process. Visitors can also get information regarding economic production of moulded parts in LSR on a 130-ton version supported by an M-10iA – M-20iA FANUC robot. The third exhibit, a 30-ton ROBOSHOT Alpha-S 30iA with a M-1iA robot, produces Smartphone precision connectors in LCP in a highly economically way.

On a FANUC ROBOSHOT Alpha-S 150iA with vertical SI-20iA injection unit automotive parts with light conductor are produced in Macrolon PC in a Weber two-cavity turntable mould. Part removal is carried out by a FANUC LR-Mate 6-axis industrial robot, combined with a linear axis as well as an iRVision integrated visual control station. The result is 100 percent assured double-sided part control, consistent component weight and a total cycle time of only 57 seconds.

The 130-ton is a turnkey system with a Nexus ROBOSHOTLSR, bringing premium performance to elastomer injection moulding. The associated injection mould, made in the in-house tool shop, with TIMESHOT cold-runner control is supplemented by the integration of two SERVOMIX dosing systems with unique SPLITNEX technology and the new NANOSHOREMIX LSR application. The turnkey system is made up of FANUC NEXUS ROBOSHOT LSR injection moulding machine Alpha-S 130iA, FANUC robot M-10 – M-12, NEXUS LSR NANOSHOREMIX (dosing system SERVOMIX E200 Premium Edition + LSR dosing system SERVOMIX E20 Eco), NEXUS LSR 16-cavity injection mould with TIMESHOT valve gate cold-runner system, Packing and printing including conveyor belt.

FANUC ROBOSHOT ALPHA-S 30iA produces LCP Smartphone precision connectors in a four-cavity mould supplied by SAYAMA, four parts every two seconds. Those products must meet the strictest quality standards. Consequently, these parameters require very high process stability and reliability of the machine. The all-electric FANUC ROBOSHOT fully complies with these conditions providing innovative unique servo control functions. Cavity-dependent component sorting is enabled via the M-1iA robot, equipped with iRVision for optical recognition. The state-of the-art high precision miniature connector boasts a pitch of merely 0.35mm – with a precision factor within the µ range. With less than 2 seconds, the cycle time is remarkably short.

The FANUC Corporation is one of the worldwide leaders in factory automation for CNC control systems, robots and production machinery (ROBODRILL, ROBOCUT and ROBOSHOT). Since 1956, FANUC is the pioneer in the development of numerically controlled machines in the automation industry. With more than 252 FANUC subsidiaries worldwide and more than 6,500 employees, FANUC offers a dense network in sales, technical support, research & development, logistics and customer service.
