FANUC is launching a new robot controller, which will facilitate the integration of automation and robotics processes, at this year’s Interpack in Germany. The controller, known as the J-30iB, uses core FANUC robot technology to provide an easy-to-operate system that can increase productivity and decrease downtime for manufacturers.

The J-30iB is able to coordinate multiple machine axes operating simultaneously, helping to facilitate complex project engineering and servo axis positioning integration tasks. The controller’s flexibility means it can be applied to any automation or robot integration requirements, while providing a consistently high level of precision and control. It is also compatible with existing software functions of FANUC robots, including industrial field bus systems.

FANUC’s newest controller will be available in three standard configurations. It can also be configured for individual automation requirements.

Thomas Schneider, Product Manager, Material Handling and Vision at FANUC, says: “The J-30iB controller will help manufacturers improve their business agility and productivity due to its complete motion control and flexibility of application.”

Andrew Armstrong, sales and marketing manager at FANUC UK, adds: “All FANUC controllers operate on the guiding principles of precision, control and ease-of-use, and the J-30iB model will be no different. In addition, it also offers manufacturers the flexibility to use it on any existing automation or robotics systems, while simplifying complex, multi-axes machine motions without the need for extensive programming.”

FANUC will be exhibiting at Interpack in Düsseldorf, Germany, from the 4th – 10th May in Hall 6, Stand D79. Follow the link for more information on FANUC’s automation and robotics products.
