FANUC America, a supplier of CNCs, robotics, and ROBOMACHINEs has recently introduced the LR Mate 200iD/14L, the tenth model variation of the popular LR Mate series of tabletop industrial robots.  Since the LR Mate series was launched nearly 30 years ago, it has become one of FANUC’s biggest sellers, with over 70,000 units installed across the globe. 

The popularity of the LR Mate robot series is due to FANUC’s world-renowned reliability along with a number of unique features including its lightweight, tabletop size, which is often compared to the size of a person’s arm.  In addition, the LR Mate can process or handle parts weighing up to 14kg in the automotivee-commerce and warehousingfood and beveragemedical devicepharmaceutical, and many other industries.  Ten models include clean room and wash proof versions, each with various wrist speeds and reaches to accommodate even the most limited workspace. 

“Since it was introduced in 1992, the LR Mate robot has been deployed in a variety of traditional manufacturing and service applications. Some of the most interesting things we’ve seen this robot do include serving coffee, fulfilling orders in retail stores, and preparing fast foods,” said Carolyn Chase, product manager, LR Mate robot series, FANUC America.

How Robotic Automation Impacts E-Commerce

PB-44-Fanuc-RoboticECommerce-400.jpg

By Robert McElmurry, FANUC

As the pandemic created a “new normal” for how we live and work that no one could have imagined, the fulfillment and logistics industries experienced unprecedented growth.  A key factor driving this market growth is omni-channel fulfillment. 

Increasingly, customer demand is driving retailers, suppliers and third-party logistics companies (3PLs) to develop capabilities to deliver product through multiple channels. While the state of e-commerce made steady advancements over the past decade, the unique situation brought on by COVID caused the fulfillment sector to evolve more rapidly.

A year into the pandemic, suppliers are looking for the best methods to get product to their customers at the right place and time – no matter what order channel is used.  This increased demand is due to a significant growth in e-commerce, and a quickly growing shortage of labor.   As we examine various methods of fulfillment, it is clear that robotics are now considered necessary tools to help companies not only meet, but exceed their customers’ needs.  Let’s find out why.

When system integrators first tackle an automation project for fulfillment, it is important to understand the distribution channel, and the specific application niche the robotic solution is designed to fill. This allows the integrator to better understand the type of product, packaging, volume, and upstream and downstream processes that are likely in place.

UCEC Identifies What Makes Them a Top Notch Control Panel Builder

PBUS-27-UCEC-TopNotchPanelBuilder-400.jpg

UCEC has existed for more than sixty years by building the best control panels, period. To keep their focus on quality custom panels, they have never defined themselves as a “one-stop shop." To be all things to all people with something as complicated as a control panel should send up a red flag. When panels shops try to do everything (a “one-stop shop”), that’s when things get diluted and messy.

There is so much talent and work that goes into a UCEC panel. UCEC knows their industry thoroughly, and they wish to remain highly relevant in the field. No one gets there by being all things to all people. UCEC shares two examples of this philosophy in action.

PARTNERING WITH EXPERTS TO SERVE CLIENTS BETTER

UCEC's talented craftsmen contribute their years of knowledge of panel building to each project. Conversely, most engineering firms who try to build panels quickly learn there is more to them than meets the eye. As UCEC's President and CEO, Mark Inboden said, “Two specialized companies collaborating to solve a customer’s problem often leads to a better result for the end user.”

UCEC finds that the best results happen for their clients when they partner with other experts and this case study demonstrates exactly that.
