The FANUC 710ic-50 is a fast and accurate medium payload robot (50kg x 2050mm) suitable for all handling applications, palletizing, and machining. It has a wrist flange and base mounting that is standard for the series, allowing for seamless backwards compatibility and a leaner manufacturing process. The 710iC/50 can lift a 50kg payload and reach 2050mm horizontally. It is coupled with the state of the art R-30iA controller, which requires less than 1 minute to start. In case of power failure, the robot program restarts much quicker than with any PC-based program, and the resume hotstart function allows restarting safely and continuing production after power failure. The unique resume tolerance check prevents unexpected movements and collisions, and increases up-time (robot availability).
