Working in partnership, TM robotics and Toshiba Machine have announced the launch of Toshiba Machine’s newest TVM 6-axis line, from the biggest robotics show in the world, Automate. The new 6-axis robots are compatible with other Toshiba Machine products, including injection molding machines and machine tools, and are a great fit for companies that have significant material handling and general machine tending needs.
The new cost-effective TVM model is a vertically articulated robot series aimed at a multitude of industries, such as automotive components, plastics, medical, packaging, and pharmaceutical, due to its high productivity in transfer and assembly and lightweight, reliable design.
Toshiba Machine has initially released three models of the TVM – all with varying specifications:
Combined with Toshiba Machine’s robot vision recognition package, TSVision3D, the TVM also supports easy implementation of bin-picking automation. With such convenience, no CAD data is necessary for model registration. Instead, the introduction of an automated system is supported with an easy calibration procedure.
In addition to the TVM launch, TM Robotics will also be featuring a number of robots and partnerships from the TM Robotics booth at Automate. They include:
TM Robotics’ Founder and CEO Nigel Smith who will be available from the Automate booth #1668 will be discussing the 6-axis robot trends, when it makes the most sense to use a traditional versus a collaborative robot and why it’s so important that a product line like Toshiba Machine’s is able to offer the full spectrum of robots (6-axis, Cartesian, and SCARA).
Smith commented: “Automate is the most important show we attend every two years and we’re thrilled to be here with so many of our partners, colleagues and customers. With all of us under one roof, it’s the perfect place to showcase what we’re doing and make business connections that count.”
