Sustainable by nature.
Reliable from the heart.
Visit us at K-Show in Düsseldorf
from 19th to 26th October 2022
Another 3 years have passed since the last K Show in 2019. The next K Show is almost upon us and we are really looking forward to seeing you, in Düsseldorf, between 19th and 26th October. We therefore cordially invite you to visit our booth in Hall 14 Stand A50 to view our exhibits and discuss your future requirements.
Our focus in 2022 is about enhanced Technology, Connectivity, Automation, & Sustainability. To that end, we would like to share some highlights to hopefully gain your interest.
We look forward to your visit and an exciting professional exchange and demonstrating how FANUC can help increase your production efficiencies!

FANUC Highlights at K-show 2022
Full electric technology
FANUC ROBOSHOT is full electric IMM with more than 38 experience of it. It takes state-of-the-art CNC precision technology from turning and milling and applies it to electric injection moulding. The results are greater acceleration, ultimate precision of movement and extremely short cycle times to produce large quantities of consistently high-quality parts.
Outlining the reliability of FANUC technology, the MTBF for the company’s CNC systems is more than 41 years, while for robots it is over 47 years. Any maintenance requirements are simple to perform. The FANUC Panel iH Pro multifunctional display can highlight impending issues prior to failure, even providing a video or image that outlines how rectification can take place in-house to minimise downtime.
Sustainable, reliable, low-cost production
FANUC’s superior servo technology and intelligent energy recovery reduce ROBOSHOT’s energy consumption by 50 –70 % compared to hydraulic machines and by up to 10 –15 % compared to other manufacturers’ electric machines. Given very low maintenance costs, very high levels of uptime, fewer components and less wear, FANUC ROBOSHOT provides the lowest Total Cost of Ownership on the market.
FANUC ROBOSHOT standard medical package is optimised for cleanroom environments. On K-show FANUC will demonstrate a PETEK laminar flow box for class 8 cleanroom use. Filtering particulates from the air, the flow box is located within a laminar flow hood that pushes clean air towards the moulding zone. Further features include bush-less tie bars for enhanced cleanliness in the mould area (less lubricant requirement), FDA-approved grease, high-gloss paint for easy cleaning and rust-proof linear guides.
To demonstrate FANUC’s compatibility with the latest sustainable workpiece materials, visitors to K 2022 can view a ROBOSHOT S100iB (100T capacity) injection moulding machine producing 8-cavity coffee capsules from a bio-compostable plastic. Fully configured to process this innovative material, the ROBOSHOT machine at the exhibition will have an Inmex 26mm barrel with integrated heater featuring insulation and cooling for energy-efficient operation.
LSR moulding in action
Today, liquid silicone rubber technology is being used whether for rain sensors or light guides in the automotive sector, optical lenses and medical products. The application range for LSR moulded parts is increasing. FANUC as a pioneer of high precision moulding machines combine adapted LSR plasticising units and process specific options into an outstanding system for LSR moulding solutions.
Elsewhere on the booth, visitors can view FANUC’s extensive IoT capabilities, including the potential to connect to FANUC machines using EUROMAP 77/OPC40077. The spotlight will also fall on ROBOSHOT-LINKi-2, a production and quality information tool that can monitor the entire moulding process, schedule upcoming jobs, analyse and evaluate historical data, create customised reports, and issue downtime notification emails.
Another highlight will be a connection from a FANUC ROBOSHOT machine to the UMATI booth at K 2022.
Everything on view from FANUC at K 2022 is available from a single source thanks to the ONE FANUC approach. A single, common, easy-to-integrate platform encompassing machines, robots and software provides complete flexibility for customers seeking an easy pathway to optimised production.
