In 2023, TM Robotics will launch a wide range of SCARA robots to the European market, including the latest THE800 and THE1000 models.
The industrial robotics robot, TM Robotics, Shibaura Machinery’s main distribution partner, will send the full range of SCARA robots to the European market in Automation 2023.
From the 27th of June to the 30th in Munich, Utomatica is the largest robot event in Europe. TM Robotics will exhibit under the name Shibaura Machines in Hall B5, Booth 406.
Shibaura Machinery, formerly known as Toshiba Machinery, is a leading Japanese manufacturer of industrial robots. Having been designing robots for over 40 years, Shibaura Machinery is globally regarded as an automation expert. In 2023, TM Robotics will launch a wide range of SCARA robots to the European market, including the latest THE800 and THE1000 models available.
THE800 has an arm length of 800mm and offers precision, a defined path of movement and high speed operation. As the second largest robot in the world, it has a payload of 20 kg and a maximum cycle time of 0.41 seconds.
The largest of the THE1000 series offers the same payload and can be used in processes that require a longer distance, due to the one meter arm length. As with the entire range, both new additions are compatible with the Shibaura TS5000 machine controller to make programming the robot easier.
These two models add to the existing robots in the environment. The smallest option, THE400 shows the way of movement precisely with the speed of operation with a cycle time of 0.39 seconds. This is specifically designed for precision assembly and inspection applications in the electronic equipment and automotive component industries. THE600, with a 600mm arm length, offers the same high speeds, but with improvements in synchronized control and precision tracking.
All models in this range are compatible with the TS5000 robot controller, the latest controller from Shibaura Machines. This technology is designed to comply with Industry 4.0 and provides a launching pad for the next generation of Shibaura Machine robots. The controller is 33 percent smaller than previous models and weighs just 10kg, keeping the factory footprint to a minimum.
“The range offers quality and efficiency and, in conjunction with the TS5000 controller, provides a formidable automation solution,” explained Nigel Smith, Managing Director of TM Robotics. “Anyone looking to increase manufacturing productivity or looking to work with TM Robotics as a distributor, end user or system integrator should come to visit our booth at 406.”
