TM Robotics' SCARA robot helps ASG earn RIA Certified Robot Integrator status

April 5, 2018 - Toshiba Machine partner, TM Robotics, has supported ASG, Division of Jergens in the Robotics Industry Association (RIA) assessment to become a Certified Robot Integrator. Using a Toshiba Machine TH650A SCARA robot during the RIA exam, ASG has passed the certification process and achieved certified status. This is the first time a SCARA robot has been used for the RIA certification.

The RIA Certified Robot Integrator program was established in 2012. The program was designed to set standards for the industry and identify a quality benchmark for robot integrators to meet. To achieve certification, integrators must complete an examination process which includes an on-site audit, a practical assessment including technical robot programming and safety training.

During the practical assessment of its RIA certification exam, ASG used the Toshiba Machine TH650A SCARA robot.  The TH650A is part of Toshiba Machine’s SCARA selection. The TH series is a range of SCARA robots and TM Robotics can provide an arm to meet almost every application requirement. The smallest model, the TH180, delivers a standard cycle time of just 0.35 seconds, whereas the largest model in the series, the TH1200A, can provide a cycle time of 0.39 seconds and carries an maximum payload of 20kg.

Having initially connected with Toshiba Machine partner and distributor, TM Robotics, in September 2016, ASG chose to use Toshiba Machine’s TH650A model during the RIA certification process.

The robot is designed for end-of-line packaging and assembly tasks. What’s more, the TH650A uses a rigid gear for each axis. The rigidity is capable of rapid acceleration, increasing the lifespan of the machine.
