Old Robots: Fanuc Robotics

Posted in Robots by J Sager on November 21, 2009

Mid 1990’s Fanuc Robots sold by Reliable Tools in 2006:

Every once and a while you come across some great photos on ebay. Being that I am always looking for surplus industrial parts I happen to see a lot of robot listings. The originality of these robots becomes apparent when you realize that typical robots manufactured by Fanuc are entirely yellow. These somehow ended up with specialty paint jobs. Also, most robots that end up on the used market have their specialty grippers at the end of the arm removed.
