This is an industrial robot make by FANUC that can be programmed, generally to perform repetitive motions. The robot is actually a collection of 3 systems:

  1. The controller which plans motion, collects signals and causes the robot to move
  2. The robot arm, which mechanically performs the motion
  3. The teach pendant, which acts as a human-machine interface to the robot, allowing the operator to type commands and generally configure, program and run the robot.


  • Total payload cannot exceed 11 lbs
    • Total payload = mass of end of arm tool + mass of anything the robot lifts or moves under its own power
  • The robot should not directly touch food or anything else requiring sanitation
    • This is not a "cleanroom" type robot
  • The robot should not be exposed to chemicals or caustic substances
    • This is not a robot rated for chemical, oil or caustic substance exposure
  • Use common sense
    • Just because this is a low payload robot does not mean it can't or wont cause harm should someone do something stupid with it


  • Before starting any project with the robot it's important to have a plan for how it will be used
  • Know what the robot is going to be doing
  • Are there going to be people working with and or alongside the robot?
  • Make sure the task is safe to do before doing it
  • Have you designed a tool? Will it be lifting something? Have you checked the payload to see if the robot is capable of lifting it
    • only can lift 11lbs at the wrist

Maintenance Info


  • Are there mechanical drawings of the robot?
    • Yes, check the link in the documentation


  • Move the controller to the bottom of the cart
  • Cable routing & cleanup

This was put in the CNC shop because it is controlled numerically by a computer... is this the right space?
