TM Robotics Exhibits New Toshiba Machine Robots for First Time in Canada at Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show

Demo shows off Toshiba Machine’s cost-effective TVL500 6-axis and THL300 SCARA solutions

TORONTO--CMTS BOOTH #2763

TM Robotics, partnered with Toshiba Machine, will demo Toshiba Machine's new TVL500 6-axis and the THL300 SCARA robots at this year's Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) from September 28 through October 1. Both robot series are part of Toshiba Machine's new cost-effective line and feature added energy efficiency and easy integration.

Although launched first in Europe, this will be the first time TM Robotics has exhibited the TVL500 6-axis robot in Canada. Its unique design allows for easy extensions with further generations of the model, based on the same concept, and it is an easy-to-program option that's attractive to the automation engineers. The TVL500 was also recently named a Special Committee Award winner at the 45th Machine Design Awards in Japan, based on the product's function, operation, and design. The awards are sponsored by technical newspaper Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun.

Also recently released, the THL300 SCARA robot continues to grow in popularity due to its lightweight, a benefit to system integrators, and low-energy consumption, a bonus for end users. These robots are ideal in stand-alone applications, but their ease of integration maximizes their appeal to machine builders and integrators, too.

In the short time since the launch, TM Robotics has sold thousands of the TVL and THL line in Europe and Asia. The core demand has been from EMS companies in Asia and high-precision assembly houses in Europe that are looking for a high quality, cost-effective product. In addition, other companies have been using the line for general handling and machine loading/unloading applications. In North America, this technology provides additional flexibility to machine builders and system integrators who need to customize robotics applications for specific verticals and manufacturers' footprints.

"We're looking forward to showing both attendees and fellow exhibitors how great this new range of robots is," said TM Robotics CEO Nigel Smith. "With a look and feel that's different from anything on the market today, these robots give users more cross-functional capabilities, extending the robots' shelf life longer than ever before."
