FANUC America’s Quick and Simple Startup of Robotization (QSSR) feature enables FANUC CNCs to control connected FANUC robots that are providing machine tending or other assistance. The QSSR G-code feature enables operators and machine tool builders to easily program robots through the FANUC CNC in ISO standard G-code format. This means that those unfamiliar with robotic programming language will no longer require additional training because the programming can be performed more easily. A reliance on a separate teach pendant for the robot is also greatly reduced with the capability of robotic programming and operation through the CNC user interface.
The QSSR G-code feature is available on FANUC CNC Series Oi-F, Oi-F Plus, 30i-B and 30i-B Plus .
