The system also incorporates FANUC's new LR Mate 200iD Robot for the loading and unloading of the FANUC ROBODRILLs. The six-axis LR Mate 200iD is the lightest mechanical unit in its class. Its slim arm makes it ideal for machine load and unload applications where minimal interference in peripheral devices and the ability to work in narrow spaces is required. Integrating the robot with the ROBODRILLs in this way creates an overall small system footprint.
Here, the FANUC LR Mate 200iD is loading and unloading injector nozzles from two FANUC ROBODRILLs, one on each side. A very unique system feature is the ROBODRILL's Servo Doors. These integrated servo-controlled doors are opened and closed by the robot's extended axis, synchronizing the robot and the ROBODRILL with coordinated motion. This allows the doors to be opened and closed at amazingly fast speeds for quick load and unload of the ROBODRILLs. The system also uses FANUC Machine Tool Connection software for fast transfer of data via Ethernet between the FANUC robot and ROBODRILL to the FANUC CNC, providing easy operation and a streamlined execution.
