Robot range completed by six-axis launch

Robot range completed by six-axis launch
The new TV800 EZCell robot, launched in the UK by TM Robotics (Europe) this month, is the first six axis robot ever manufactured by Toshiba Machine. The launch is said to  represent a significant development in the automation market, with Toshiba Machine claiming it is now one of the only major players in the industry to offer a complete range of robot technologies - SCARA, Cartesian and six axis. The new robot will find uses in a host of pick and place applications.

The TV800 has a total arm length of 800mm, a reach of 892mm and a composite maximum speed of 8.06 metres per second. The robot has a maximum cycle time of 0.4 to 0.5 seconds, repeatability of ±0.02mm and a maximum payload of five kilograms. It's controlled using Toshiba Machine's new TS3100 controller, which is programmed in SCOL, a language similar to BASIC, as are all Toshiba Machine industrial robots, and has the option of a teach pendant for easy access outside the robot cell. 

"The TV800 completes the set for Toshiba Machine and for us," explains Nigel Smith, managing director of TM Robotics. "We now offer the widest range of SCARA robots on the market, a Cartesian solution that can be configured in literally hundreds of ways and a six axis robot that can be compared with the very best in its class. Coupled with the ability of our IP65 SCARA robot to compete, on an equal footing, with flexipickers in industries such as food and pharmaceuticals, our range now feels whole."
