FANUC America, a supplier of CNCs, robotics, and ROBOMACHINEs has recently introduced the LR Mate 200iD/14L, the tenth model variation of the popular LR Mate series of tabletop industrial robots.  Since the LR Mate series was launched nearly 30 years ago, it has become one of FANUC’s biggest sellers, with over 70,000 units installed across the globe. 

The popularity of the LR Mate robot series is due to FANUC’s world-renowned reliability along with a number of unique features including its lightweight, tabletop size, which is often compared to the size of a person’s arm.  In addition, the LR Mate can process or handle parts weighing up to 14kg in the automotivee-commerce and warehousingfood and beveragemedical devicepharmaceutical, and many other industries.  Ten models include clean room and wash proof versions, each with various wrist speeds and reaches to accommodate even the most limited workspace. 

“Since it was introduced in 1992, the LR Mate robot has been deployed in a variety of traditional manufacturing and service applications. Some of the most interesting things we’ve seen this robot do include serving coffee, fulfilling orders in retail stores, and preparing fast foods,” said Carolyn Chase, product manager, LR Mate robot series, FANUC America.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
