Robot Series Eliminates Calibration Steps for Time and Cost Savings

TM Robotics, in partnership with Toshiba Machine, has announced the BAIII, newest in Toshiba Machine's BA Cartesian series. "Unlike most Cartesian suppliers, the Toshiba Machine solution is a true plug & play as all cables, junction boxes, brackets, motors and controllers are supplied with the actuators. This means there is no need for calibration between the motor and the actuator or between the motor and the controller, which enables users to reduce their engineering costs - saving both time and money - and use the BAIII as soon as it is installed," said a company spokesperson.

In addition to being plug & play, the BAIII robot offers simple programming for user-friendly operation. Other key features include:

  • Length of actuator: Extensive range from 50 mm to 4,450 mm
  • Availability: Large range of combinations from single- to 2-, 3- and 4-axis meet many requirements and applications
  • Applications: Transfer, inspection, palletizing, assembly and sealing.

AC servomotors and absolute encoders are available in all models, providing accuracy and eliminating the need to perform a home-positioning routine. The BAIII also includes a high payload capacity, which means a horizontal mass of 250 kg with a 2-axis combination is capable of carrying up to 100 kg, and the robot can run at a speed as high as 2,000 mm/sec.

The units can be shipped assembled for usage straight from the box. In addition, the actuators have oil free bearings, allowing for minimal maintenance requirements.

"With this new Cartesian series we are seeing more capabilities being put into the hands of our customers, reducing their need to spend engineering time up front," said Nigel Smith, CEO of TM Robotics. "As one of the only companies offering a plug & play solution, Toshiba Machine has given our customers not only an immediate cost savings, it also provides them with the added autonomy they have been looking for."
