JBM Showcasing OCTOPUZ Robotic Software at JIMTOF 2016
OCTOPUZ Posted 11/11/2016
This November, JBM will be showcasing OCTOPUZ at the 28th Japan International Machine Tool Fair. JIMTOF is dedicated to the development of industry and trade promotion through increased international transactions and technical exchanges of machine tools and their related equipment.
Visit booth E5016 at Tokyo Big Sight November 17-22nd to see the versatility of OCTOPUZ in action. JBM will have both a KUKA and a FANUC on display covering a variety of functions, all programmed and simulated with OCTOPUZ robotic software. Our special white model KUKA KR 240 R2700 will be mounted on a 4m rail, demonstrating multiple applications using wood, resin, aluminum and carbon with an ATC (Automatic Tool Changer) function.
We’re also excited to have a green cobot with us. This new FANUC CR-7iA/L specializes in safety and working collaboratively with humans. Perfect for working around people without a safety fence in applications such as pick & place, as it will stop moving if touched. Be one of the first to see it live!
