At Irex Tokyo, Toshiba Machine presented the High-Speed Scara Robot THE 400, connected to the TSL3000E controller, which can be used for assembly, testing, handling and packaging operations, with applications in the electronics, automotive and food industries. With a linear speed of 7000 mm per second and a payload of 2 kg, the robot guarantees an adept cycle of 0.3 seconds and can carry up to 5 kg weight with reduced dynamics. Excellent performance thanks to a new joint-movement mechanism, new trajectory management algorithms and parameterization of servo amplifiers. A suspended version of the robot will follow with ceiling-mounted mode.
The described new Toshiba robot is marketed and serviced by Tiesse Robot.
