hello, this is my first post 🙂
I'm a student and u study robotis, but we are working with ABB IRC5 controllers, so i have no clue about FANUC rovots/controllers. And not my teacher also.
I'm looking for a cuting robot for smal thing cnc style.
I have an offer for an old FANUC ARC Mate 100 with R-J controller for 150$. Its for a hobby to learn more. But what pros and cons is there? I dont like to buy 500kg of metal.
To the questions,
how do i start it? ( there is not a lot of youtube videos out there).
And controll it?
Menory of the controller? Backup? (No memory = dead)?
Computer software to of offline?
How do i send files?
Is there an CAM/CAD that you use? (RoboDK?)
What to look for? Std bad things.
Is it a GOOD Robot?
One of the problem is, is hard to find any information about R-j controller, most is for newer versions of controllers.
Please help what to do. Or is it beter to say with ABB controllers?
