Assembly Line Robots

Robotic assembly is likely one of the first images people have when they think of industrial robots. Automotive manufacturing – essentially the first industry to standardize on robotic automation – utilizes heavy-duty six axis robots to increase capacity and improve quality in their manufacturing processes.

Today, assembly line robots stretch far beyond automotive, as we see more and more opportunities for high-speed robotic assembly of small intricate parts. Assembly line robot processes provide the speed and precision manufacturers require without sacrificing quality and accuracy. The flexibility of assembly line robots allows manufacturers to optimize workflow, increase capacity, and easily produce a wider range of products because they can perform multiple value-added processes, eliminating the need for expensive fixed automation. Intelligent features like integrated 2D and 3D iRVision and Force sensing enhance the assembly process.

Intelligence Feature: FANUC’s Integrated iRVision

Robotic vision allows the robot to “see” and pick up a component from a conveyor or tray, reducing the need for extensive programming. In addition to part location, iRVision can assist with inspection, gauging, detection and error proofing. FANUC designs all of the hardware and software specifically for FANUC robots, providing customers solutions to meet their production needs.

Six-axis Robots

You can check the box for small to large assembly applications including using multiple robots coordinated to work together to assemble large components. In the small category, the LR Mate series is a popular favorite.

Available with different reaches and wrist speeds, this human-arm sized robot is your best compact solution for fast handling and processing parts up to 7 kg across a wide range of industries including food or metal. The versatile M-10iD series, M-20iB and M-20iD series offer payloads from 12-35kg with compact footprints and all direction installation.


Collaborative Options

Robots can tackle complicated tasks too small or intricate for a person to handle with ease.  However, if your application requires a person to assist – our CR Series collaborative robots and our all-new CRX Series cobots will stop on contract or can be programmed to operate at a reduced speed when a co-worker is present and back to high speed when the person exits.


Intelligence Feature: FANUC Force Sensor

Force sensing is often needed in part assembly operations for processes like insertion, drilling, tightening or screw driving, giving the robot controller feedback about how well parts are going together or how much force and torque is being applied. Together, these sensing technologies make a robot assembly line cost effective for even relatively short production runs.

Discover the Many Benefits of Using Robotic Automation for Assembly

Assembly process can be strenuous for employees –heavy lifting, repetitive motions can cause injuries and the repeatable nature of the task can lead to boredom and job dissatisfaction.  Robots can handle the workload quickly and accurately and can be easily redeployed when products change.
