Used FANUC Welding Robots
FANUC robots are integrated into thousands of plants around the world. For over 25 years the FANUC Arcmate Series robots have been the optimal choice in robotic arc welding for robotic integrators, automative plants, and production facilities. As such, used FANUC welding robots are common in the used robotic marketplace and offer a great option to automate an arc welding application. Some of the benfits of used FANUC welding robots include:
- Welder Integration - Most used FANUC welding robots already have the welding supply, wire feeder, and torch integrated to them. Thousands of FANUC Arcmate 120ib and FANUC Arcmate 100ib models have been used in production lines of large production facilities since FANUC began to manufacture them. In order to perform their necessary application they were integrated Lincoln welders such as the Lincoln Powerwave 455M. Later FANUC arc welding robots such as the FANUC Arcmate 120ic and FANUC Arcmate 100ic were integrated with the Lincoln Powerwave i400 welder.
- Additional Axis Integration - Most used welding cells that perform various robotic arc welding application also include additional axis in the form of a servo driven positioner. Servo controller positioners allow the robot to interact and rotate the welding table or positioner increasing efficiency and decreasing cycle time. There are many forms of positioners including ferris wheel style, tilt/rotate, 180 degree turn tables, and headstock/tailstocks.
- Commonality In The Market - Most used FANUC welding cells are some of the most commonly used robots in the world. There are many benefits to using common robots even if they are not the best fit. Trying to obtain a direct replacement or parts in the event of a breakdown is much easier if the robot is common in the market.
- Knowledgable Work Force - The high use of FANUC robots in the world has led to a high demand for FANUC trained operators. As such, getting technical support and hiring operating personnel with experience operating FANUC welding robots is much easier than a less popular brand.
