Enhanced control and software functionality

  • Large, high-resolution display

    The unique AWF3 technology provides fast, reliable automatic threading in just 10 seconds under non-submerge condition . It allows automatic wire feeding up to 500 mm under submerge conditions depending on the machine configuration.

  • Easy maintenance

    FANUC iH Pro can highlight impending issues prior to failure, even providing a video or image that outlines how rectification can take place in-house to minimise downtime. Furthermore, the inclusion of a hardened workpiece table as standard, prevents any potential for scratches to develop.

  • Faster injection rates

    In support of the faster response times provided by the PANEL iH Pro HMI, notable machine performance enhancements include increased injection rates of up to 350 mm/s, helping customers to boost productivity. Among further performance-related improvements are higher standard injection pressures, expanded screw diameter availability and the potential for up to four-axis servo-core control.

  • Lifetime machine support

    Thanks to a comprehensive Europe-wide network of service centres, FANUC can offer lifetime support for its machines, providing complete peace-of-mind for customers in the rare event of an issue.

  • Great Reliability

    More than 35 years of experience and passion for highest precision results in high reliability. FANUC is very proud to produce high quality products that will work perfectly for a long time, supporting the customers to work effectively and to increase their productivity.

  • Sustainable Approach

    We started our green journey more than 35 years ago with our first ROBOSHOT fully electric injection moulding machine.

  • Lowest energy consumption

    FANUC’s superior servo technology and intelligent energy recovery system reduce ROBOSHOT’s electricity consumption by 50-70% compared with hydraulic machines, and by 10-15% in comparison with competitor electric machines. With its exceptionally low maintenance costs, very high levels of uptime, fewer components and less wear, FANUC ROBOSHOT provides the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) on the market.

  • Increase your automation flexibility

    Users can enjoy easy connection between ROBOSHOT and FANUC robot using the versatile FL-Net field bus system.

  • Enhance your mould shop planning with the IoT

    FANUC LINKi2 is a product and quality information management tool that oversees up to 1000 ROBOSHOT machines in real time. You can access LINKi2 remotely via the web browser on your PC or tablet, or run it on the split-screen display of the new SiB series. LINKi2 can operate as a stand-alone tool or interfaced via Euromap 63 or 77 to permit data exchange with ERP or MES systems, thus meeting all of your future IoT requirements (up to 120 months of logged data).

Impressions on using FANUC ROBOSHOT

Improved production and low maintenance costs | Flaro Prod S.A

“Some of the remarkable benefits we get from using FANUC ROBOSHOT include lower energy consumption (50% less than hydraulic machines), and lower costs for both maintenance and spare parts. Having reliable machines leads to no breakdown costs and no costs for replacement components. We are also very satisfied with FANUC’s technical support.”

Production stability and a future-proof technology | Deplast

“A major advantage of FANUC is that it has been manufacturing electric machines and servo motors since the 1970s. The company has accumulated great experience in these technologies. And what makes FANUC’s attitude extremely pleasing is the fact that they are always here to help us, whatever the issue.”

Flexible and efficient manufacturing | VL Robotix

“The AI Precise Dosing function recognises a change in closing behaviour as well as any wear of the mechanical non-return valve by measuring the return flow, comparing the dosing volume with the set-point and adjusting the switchover point for each individual shot. This ensures that the cavities always fill evenly. The advantage for the manufacturer is obvious: more consistent component weight and more stable processes.”

High quality and efficiency | TESY

“We chose FANUC mostly because of its unique machine technology, which has no comparison among the rest of the world’s manufacturers in this class of machine. Very important in our final purchase decision was the fact that we were given the opportunity to test the machines with our own material and staff, which convinced us of the excellent qualities, functionality and efficiency of the machines.”

High reliability, good repeatability and high accuracy | Pepperl+Fuchs

“We want injection-moulding machines to offer high reliability, good repeatability and high accuracy, with low costs for maintenance and operations. In 2008, based on statistics and official data, our management team decided to buy FANUC machines. After acquiring our first two machines and seeing their high performance levels, we decided to buy more FANUC machines. We are very satisfied with them.”

Energy efficient and environmentally friendly | Poloplast

“Our decision to choose FANUC as a partner was made in 2005, with a view to saving energy and being more environmentally friendly. Poloplast has 35 production lines and, as early as 2010, we had already started to introduce our first biodegradable product lines. This type of material is currently in high demand and we have 60 biodegradable product lines to date. Thanks to the versatility of FANUC injection-moulding machines we didn’t need to alter anything on the production lines. We managed to completely change the lines over quickly and easily.”
