April 13, 2017-- FANUC will introduce its R-30iB Plus robot controller at the annual FANUC Open House event on April 10-13 at its headquarters in Japan.
The R-30iB Plus controller features a iPendant with a screen resolution and processing capability. The user interface, iHMI, has an icon-based screen which provides a familiar experience with guides for setup and programming. It also includes tutorials from the main home page which has a design common to FANUC CNCs, enabling use of robots. With the help of the programming guide, first-time robot users can create a program for a simple handling task and execute it in just 30 minutes.
For those customers more comfortable with the current interface, the iPendant can revert to the previous version.
The vision function of R-30iB Plus has a camera interface which increases four times the speed for transmitting images from the camera, together with a simplified cable configuration. With improvements in the user interface, the setup of the vision system can be handled more efficiently.
FANUC invites its global customers to the annual Open House event in Japan to demonstrate new robotic, CNC and factory automation products. Customers are provided the opportunity to attend technical presentations to learn about the products from FANUC’s technical experts.
