New 6-Axis Robot

Toshiba Machine's TVM1500/TSL3200E has a reach of 1,715 mm and payload of 10 kg.

TM Robotics, in partnership with Toshiba Machine, announced the launch of Toshiba Machine's newest TVM 6-axis line at Automate 2017. The new 6-axis robots are compatible with other Toshiba Machine products, including injection molding machines and machine tools, and suited 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:

  • TVM900/TSL3200E; Reach 1,124 mm, Payload 20 kg
  • TVM1200/TSL3200E; Reach 1,418 mm, Payload 15 kg
  • TVM1500/TSL3200E; Reach 1,715 mm, Payload 10 kg.

Combined with Toshiba Machine's robot vision recognition package, TSVision3D, the TVM also supports 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," said a company spokesperson.

In addition to the TVM launch, TM Robotics also featured a number of robots and partnerships at Automate. They included:

  • New partnership with ASG. The TH550A SCARA was demonstrated with ASG to showcase screwdriver assembly applications.
  • The TVL500 6-axis and the THL300 SCARA. Working together to hold a golf club and putt, demonstrating how each robot is designed to deliberate tasks that require attention to finite details.
  • The TSVision3D software. Enables system integrators to automate bin picking and is suitable for industries such as food preparation, pharmaceutical and order fulfillment.
