FANUC CRX 10iAL 400x275FANUC America, which provides CNCs and robotics to manufacturers, announced the launch of a new e-learning website aimed to educate the industry about its CRX collaborative robot. The new site provides online training models, a deep dive into several peripheral device and tooling partners, and the latest product information on its CRX cobot lineup.

The new CRX e-Learning training modules will help customers get their employees quickly up to speed, FANUC said. Three online tutorials cover a product overview with features, unboxing and setup, and a programming course. The company said it will offer additional learning modules in the next few months.

The CRX is available in two models, both with 10kg payloads, including the CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L long-reach version. A new tablet teach pendant with icon-based drag-and-drop control enables anyone to program the robot – no programming robot knowledge is required, the company said. In addition, the new CRX series offers customers eight years of maintenance-free operation. Its light construction allows operators to mount the CRX on a mobile platform in order to glide the cobot to different work areas. A new simplified gripper connection makes it straightforward to change end-of-arm tools for new tasks. An IP67 rating means the cobot can work in harsh environments.

“When it comes to cobots, the CRX is an exceptional choice for companies – even for first-time robot users,” said Eric Potter, director of FANUC’s general industry and automotive engineering segments. “Like all of FANUC’s robots, the CRX offers our proven industrial quality and reliability.”
