Shibaura Machine to unveil new SCARA features at Automate 2024

Pioneering Japanese industrial robotics manufacturer Shibaura Machine will be exhibiting at Automate 2024 alongside American distributor TM Robotics. Taking place May 6 to 9 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, Automate brings together professionals from diverse industries including aerospace, automotive, electronics, manufacturing, and more. Shibaura Machine is a leading name in robotics, with over 40 years of experience in designing and manufacturing innovative ranges of products to meet the requirements of a range of industries. It will be showcasing its market-leading THE SCARA range of industrial robots, powered by TM Robotics, at booth 661 at the show and unveiling new features to enhance its product offerings.

Organised by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), Automate offers industry professionals the chance to see first-hand the latest innovations and advancements in automation. Attendees can expect to see over 800 exhibitors from a huge range of sectors and will have the opportunity to attend various networking and education events throughout the show.

Shibaura Machine will be displaying its full range of THE SCARA robots, along with a selection of its Cartesian and six-axis robots. Visitors will be able to see the two newest models in the THE range, the THE800 and THE1000, in action at the show at its booth managed by TM Robotics, its distribution partner in North, Central and South America,.

The THE800 is designed to excel in assembly and inspection processes where precision and payload capacity are crucial factors. With a maximum payload of 20 kg and improved accuracy and precision, the THE800 offers high-speed operation with a maximum cycle time of 0.41 seconds.

The THE1000 has an impressive reach of one metre, making it ideal for assembly and inspection processes requiring larger components. It also has a maximum payload of 20 kg and high-speed operation with a maximum cycle time of 0.44 seconds. The THE100 will be working at full speed and handling its maximum payload at the show, highlighting its potential in industrial applications.

Not only will Shibaura Machine be demonstrating it’s THE range in a display powered by partner TM Robotics, the company will also be unveiling a new suite of optional extras that end-users will be able to add to their robotic solutions later this year. This includes ceiling mounting, IP65 ingress protection allowing them to become part of the manufacturing process in food and pharmaceutical production lines, and clean room options. This significantly enhances the versatility of the THE range and broadens the spectrum of potential applications for these robots.

Shibaura Machine will also be displaying a THE400 SCARA and a TVL700 six-axis robot working collaboratively with a SICK vision system for handling and inspection applications, demonstrating how harnessing the synergy between robots and advanced systems can help to optimise industrial operations.

"Our robots are engineered to meet the demands of modern manufacturing and automation processes, delivering precision, speed, and reliability, said Nigel Smith, CEO of TM Robotics. “Our demonstrations at Automate 2024 in collaboration with Shibaura Machine will showcase how industrial robots can drive efficiency and productivity in a huge range of production applications.  The new range of optional extras for the THE models will also offer our users an even wider scope for incorporating robotics into their operations — ultimately saving time, cutting costs and building smarter production lines.”
