The new FANUC ROBOCUT α-C600iC
Lyndsey visits Fanuc in Coventry to speak with Anthony Biggs about this new machine that’s recently been launched. The compact new models build on their predecessors, incorporating an updated casting design for greater rigidity, stability and accuracy. Offering unparalleled levels of speed and accuracy in metal fabrication by way of carefully controlled rapid current discharges, the α-C400iC has a footprint of just 1970 x 2120mm, while the α-C600iC stands at 2070 x 2650mm.
The α-C400iC is able to process workpieces of up to 500kg with an X/Y/Z-axis capacity of up to 730 x 630 x 250mm, offering significant versatility for a number of applications. The α-C600iC can handle workpieces up to 1000kg and 1050 x 820 x 300m, making it ideal for larger projects. The Z-axis of the α-C600iC can also be extended to 400mm on request, to facilitate working with particularly thick workpieces.
