Assembly, IREX and ATX Exhibitions

Toshiba Machine Industrial Robots on tour

Dear *|FNAME|*,

It’s been a few months since the Assembly show in Rosemont where we exhibited our extensive range of Cartesian, SCARA and 6-axis robots.

Toshiba Machine and TM Robotics have been very busy since the Assembly Show launching even more new products. We are excited to inform that if you are attending the ATX West show in Anaheim next month where you will have the chance to see the launch in North America of the newest Toshiba Machine SCARA, the THE400.

This exciting new robot, as well as the new 6-AXIS LINE FROM Toshiba Machine, the TVM series, was showcased at the International Robot Exhibition (IREX) 2017 in Tokyo, last December.

If you are unable to visit the ATX West show next month then the THE400 demonstration is available to view on the TM Robotics YouTube channel and more detailed product information can be downloaded from the TM Robotics website.

Sincerely,

Ryan Guthrie

Meeting cycle time demands with the THE400

Increasing time-to-market pressures are creating a growing demand for fast-cycle automation. At IREX, Toshiba Machine demonstrated precisely how its SCARA model, the THE400, can help manufacturers deliver these high-speed cycle times at lower costs.

Demonstrated with a standard 2kg load, the machine delivered an impressive cycle time of just 0.39 seconds, retaining continuous operation while performing at its maximum speed.

The THE400 SCARA model is designed for applications where precision is key — think electronic equipment, automotive components and general assembly and inspection processes. At IREX, the THE400 demonstration exhibited the machine completing insert movements, as well as circular and linear interpolation movements, all while retaining a fast pace.

A video of the demonstration is available to view on the TM Robotics YouTube channel.

 
 

The next generation of robot programming software

The show also provided an opportunity to demonstrate Toshiba Machine’s TSAssist robot programming tool. The software provides powerful assistance to all phases of automation, from planning to installation and enhancement.

Its easy operation was demonstrated in action at IREX 2017, showing its initiative screen design and ribbon interface with customize-able operator panels — even absolute beginners find TSAssist easy to understand and more experienced robot users can use TSAssist for customisation.

The TSAssist datasheet can be downloaded here and more information can be found on the TM Robotics website.

 
 

6-axis automation using 3D vision systems

Toshiba Machine’s TVM range, part of its 6-axis offering, was also on display at the show. IREX’s demonstration included the TVM1200, the mid-sized model in the TVM range. The TVM1200 is capable of achieving a maximum reach of 1418mm, against a 15kg maximum payload.

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 bin-picking application.

Requiring no CAD data, the TSVision3D software is ideal for picking non-uniform parts. To download a whitepaper on how the software can be used for bin-picking applications, click here.
