New cobots in FANUC's CRX series

FANUC has expanded the CRX series of collaborative robots by adding the new CRX-5iA, CRX-20iA/L and CRX-25iA to the existing CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L models.


The first models of cobots CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L have a payload of 10 kg and their reach is 1249 mm and 1418 mm respectively. The new cobots CRX-5iA, CRX-20iA/L and CRX-25iA have a useful load capacity of 5 kg, 20 kg and 25 kg respectively and a maximum reach of 994 mm, 1418 mm and 1889 mm.

The new cobot models complement FANUC's existing product line of CR and CRX collaborative robots, which currently includes a total of 11 models ranging in weight from 4 to 35 kg. This is the most extensive range of cobots currently available on the market.

FANUC's CRX series cobots are safe, easy to use, reliable and a versatile solution for a wide range of applications including inspection, machine loading/unloading, packaging, palletizing, grinding, welding and more. All models of the CRX series are standard with IP67 degree of protection /protection against dust and water ingress/, so that they can be used even in production areas with severe operating conditions. CRX cobots stop safely on contact with a person or object. This technology allows the CRX to work safely alongside humans without the need for expensive safety enclosures.

Most cobots have a lightweight and compact design, but FANUC's CRX cobots offer much more, including a high degree of applicability in industrial environments and no technical support for up to eight years. In addition, interactive programming allows users to train the cobots to specific points using manual guidance with drag and drop icons via the TP Tablet. The CRX cobots can use a standard 100V/240V power supply, incorporating energy-saving equipment with a power consumption of about 400W (at a payload of 25kg). The series supports several of FANUC's advanced features, including iRVision, and represents an ideal solution for any company that wants to achieve higher efficiency, even for those who have not yet implemented their first robot.
