January 3, 2018 - TM Robotics has assisted in the launch of Toshiba Machine’s THE400 SCARA robot, which was unveiled at the International Robot Exhibition (IREX) 2017. The biennial show was held on November 29 to December 2, at the Tokyo Big Sight in Japan. Alongside the new SCARA model, Toshiba Machine demonstrated its robot programming tool, 3D vision software and models from its 6-axis range.
IREX 2017 saw the launch of Toshiba Machine’s THE400 SCARA model — a robot designed to help manufacturers meet increasing time-to-market pressures. Toshiba Machines demonstration showcased the machine’s fast-cycle automation using a live action display of the robot completing insert movements, as well as circular and linear interpolation movements.
The THE400 is one of Toshiba Machine’s range of SCARA robots. The company also exhibited two industrial robots from the TH-A selection, which is specifically marketed for heavy payload applications. The TH1050A and TH1200A, the two of the largest in this model type, were on show demonstrating how they could support a 20kg payload and communicate with each other to avoid collisions.
The company’s THL500 SCARA model was also on display.
The vertically articulated robot was combined with Toshiba Machine’s latest 3D vision system, TSVision3D — the combination of the passive imaging system with the 6-axis robot demonstrates the systems capabilities as an automated 3D bin-picking application.
TM Robotics will continue to support Toshiba Machine’s robot launches and demonstrations in 2018.
