ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Automation–FANUC CORPORATION, the world’s leading supplier of robotics and factory
automation will demonstrate its evolving smart, connected Industrial IoT
manufacturing technologies at IMTS 2018 in Booth #338919.
“We are inviting IMTS attendees in search of solutions to improve their
manufacturing operations to spend some time with us at IMTS,” said Mike
Cicco, president and CEO, FANUC America. “Our technical experts are
ready to demonstrate FANUC’s latest automation technologies designed to
help manufacturers increase their productivity and improve their
FANUC’s IMTS exhibit includes:
Industrial IoT Solutions: the FANUC Intelligent Edge Link and Drive
(FIELD) system and Zero Down Time on ROBOT-LINKi (ZDT).
FIELD system offers customers an open platform that collects machine
data and monitors the operating status of their manufacturing equipment
in real time. Third-party application developers can create and sell
FIELD applications that improve the efficiency of equipment, production
throughput, process quality and more using an industrial API interface
to access the data and perform analytics. FANUC’s FIELD system will be
connected to more than 300 machines from 144 companies at the show.
ZDT on ROBOT-LINKi offers either a cloud-based or
on-prem solution available to manufacturers who purchase FANUC robots.
ZDT offers predictive analytics that can prevent unexpected downtime by
identifying component failures in advance, and recommend proper
intervals for routine equipment maintenance activities. This allows
plant managers to schedule regular production downtime for maintenance
and mechanical hardware replacement rather than lose valuable time and
money performing unscheduled repairs or maintenance. Plant managers can
monitor the manufacturing process using a web portal and have a clear
picture of device health, equipment utilization, and energy consumption.
ZDT data can also help customers reduce overall life cycle costs. Today,
nearly 18,000 robots in industry are operating with ZDT’s cloud-based
New advanced features in CNC and motion control products will include:
- Improved, high-resolution 3D model machining simulation that supports
5-axis and compound machining functions.
- FANUC Series 0i-MODEL F Plus, the next generation of the Series
0i CNC. The FANUC 0i-F is now more powerful and even
easier to use than ever before.
- Connecting FANUC robots and CNCs has been made even easier with the
Quick and Simple Startup of Robotization (QSSR) feature.
FANUC will also demonstrate a wide range of robotic and ROBOMACHINE
- 18 unique robotic cells demonstrating various applications such as
material handling, laser/arc/spot welding, bin picking, painting,
deburring, assembly, and dispensing.
- New SCARA robot series and a new mid-range CR-15iA
collaborative robot. FANUC’s collaborative robot demonstrations will
feature a new Hand Guidance option and unmanned order fulfillment.
- New 3D Vision Sensor and Deep Learning capabilities that helps
maximize throughput and productivity.
- The latest ROBOMACHINEs offering the ultimate in speed, power and
FANUC will also have a strong presence at the Smartforce
Student Summit featuring interactive displays and for the first time
ever, Learning Labs for educators.
Since 2010, FANUC has lead the effort to address the critical challenge
caused by a shortage of skilled workers, and helped change the
perceptions of careers in manufacturing. Its new industry-leading
certifications provide students and companies with measurable skill sets
aligned with today’s advanced automation technologies, increasing
workforce readiness at all levels.
FANUC will be featured in the following conference Sessions:
- Enhancing Shop Floor Productivity – Mon. Sept. 10 | 1:15-2:10 | W192-B Register
