TM Robotics will be announcing the newest 6-axis robot from Toshiba Machine. Customers are looking for light to medium duty robots to perform tasks, without breaking the bank.

Talking AUTOMATE 2017 with TM Robotics

Contributed by | TM Robotics

 

Your company will be exhibiting at AUTOMATE 2017, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

AUTOMATE is the premier event in the robotics industry, so it’s extremely important that we be there. What’s great about this show is we can network with our partners, integrators, and potential customers all in one place.

 

What can a visitor to your booth expect to see this year?

TM Robotics will present the global launch of Toshiba Machine’s newest 6-axis robot, as well as exhibit several other robots in a variety of functional capacities. They include:

  • The TVL500 6-axis and the THL300 SCARA working together to hold a golf club and putt, demonstrating how each robot can accomplish deliberate tasks that require attention to finite details.
  • The TSVision3D software. This enables system integrators to easily automate 3D bin picking and is of great interest to industries such as food preparation, pharmaceutical, and order fulfillment.
  • The BAIII series Cartesian, which will be demonstrated with TM Robotics’ partner ECD to showcase the diversity of the range of actuators from Toshiba Machine.
  • The TH550A SCARA will be showcased with TM Robotics’ new partner, ASG, in screw driver assembly applications.

 

Any new products you will be introducing?

TM Robotics will be announcing the newest 6-axis robot from Toshiba Machine. Customers are looking for light to medium duty robots to perform tasks, without breaking the bank. Toshiba Machine’s latest series was developed with that in mind. It provides significant cost savings, without sacrificing speed, repeatability, and reliability.

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?

We’ll be looking for new peripheral automation products, such as end of arm tooling (EOAT), that will enhance our offering to the customer and make the integration of our industrial robots even more user friendly and powerful than they currently are.

 

AUTOMATE 2017 has over 100 educational sessions, is your company involved in any of them this year?

We’re not involved in any of the sessions this year, but that doesn’t mean we’re not looking forward to a great show. AUTOMATE always ensures exhibitors and presenters have the ability to showcase their robot possibilities, which in turn assists manufacturers in gaining the most from their automation investments.

 

When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

With this particular show, we have high expectations. But that’s only because of how well it’s done year after year. We come to AUTOMATE to connect with colleagues and customers, to learn from the many interesting sessions, and to demonstrate our vast robotics capabilities to all that attend.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
