Robots from fanuc for Flexible convertible fixturing

The F-200iB is a six degrees of freedom servo-driven parallel link robot designed for use in a variety of manufacturing and automotive assembly processes. The F-200iB is engineered for applications requiring extreme rigidity and exceptional repeatability in a compact, powerful package.

F-200iB, the Solution for:

■ Sub-compact robot welding
■ Pedestal welding
■ Part loading/positioning
■ Nut running
■ Vehicle lift and locate
■ Flexible/convertible fixturing
■ Material Removal
■ Dispense


■ Provides flexibility and convertability – the ability to reprogram the F-200iB
facilitates rapid and costeffective model changeovers.

■ Reduces capital expense – F-200iB process solutions take less time and money to process and design. They also reduce tooling and build costs.

■ Lowers operating expense – using the F-200iB reduces tooling complexity, resulting
in less maintenance and down time.

■ Optimizes use of floorspace – the sub-compact F-200iB can fit in spaces too cramped for serial link robots.

■ Makes it feasible to perform more welds per station, thus reducing the number of
stations per system.

■ New process possibilities – the F-200iB opens the door to new process solutions not
available with current tools.



■ Six degrees of freedom
■ Simple, robust, lowmaintenance
■ Electric AC servo motors
■ Precision gear drives
■ Fail-safe brake on each leg
■ Components protected from
weld flash, grease, chemicals
and water

Multi cut threading macro program example using G76

Multi cut threading macro program example using G76

Custom Macro – Using variables for the Programming :

Ideal application for the use of Variable programming (i.e. Custom Macro Programming) on a CNC Lathe :

As such the usage is covering very vast application area. You name it and it can be coded using macros. But, by and large following are the core application areas :

1) Threading applications like variable lead threading, Multi start threading,

Square and Trapezoidal threading, circular form non-standard type

threading ;

2) Multi-start worm cutting ;

3) Face and radial grooving of non-standard type;

4) Design one’ s own cycle of any type.

Example : Carrying out 4 start threading of the size – M16 x 2.0 mm pitch. Write a custom Macro “A” Program for the same. Use Multi-cut threading cycle – G76. Use following data :

Data :

i) O. D. = 15.8 mm
ii) δ1 = 30.0 mm
iii) δ2 = 5.0 mm
iv) 1st cut depth = 0.3 mm
v) Lead = Pitch x no. of starts = 2 x 4…
