Material Handling

Revolutionize your manufacturing processes with material handling

As programmable manipulators, robots are the ideal tool for moving anything from point A to point B, over and over and over, saving your team from the repetition and danger of material moving. Whether it’s loading and unloading a turning center, transferring stampings between presses or picking candy from a conveyor and placing it in a box, a FANUC material handling robot is the way to go.

Material Handling Robots In Action

Material handling robots cut costs because they do the kind of arduous work humans aren’t suited for. They’ll lift massive payloads — the largest FANUC robot can tote more than 2,866 pounds (1300kg) at one time — and place them to within a few thousandths of an inch all day and all night.

Lifting is a leading cause of workplace injuries, and it costs employers millions each year. Automating material handling tasks with robotic material handling systems, such as bin-picking robots, creates a better environment for workers and protects employers against compensation claims.

When thinking about a robot for automated material handling, the primary considerations should be payload and reach. Together they dictate the size of robot needed, although it’s often worth over-specifying because robots are easily reassigned to new tasks as the mix of orders through a shop ebbs and flows. The more tasks that an automated material handling system can handle, the more effective it will be.

Advantages of Material Handling Robots:

  • Superior repeatability resulting in lower quality-related costs, like scrap, rework, complaints and more consistent product.
  • Reduced expenditure on consumables — tools wear at a lower and more predictable rate.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) costs fall
  • Reduced repetitive strain injuries
