SCARA robots on show at Czech trade show

~ TM Robotics is exhibiting at the International Engineering Fair ~

Industrial robot specialist, TM Robotics is exhibiting at the International Engineering Fair (MSV) in Brno, Czech, from October 9-13, 2017. With over 1,500 exhibitors and 75,000 visitors from 59 countries worldwide, TM Robotics is set to reach out to the many attendees, demonstrating the addition of a sliding fifth axis to the THP550 SCARA robot.

The industrial robot specialist is exhibiting along with Slovakian Republic-based robot specialist, SDA.  Together they will exhibit the unique THP550 slider demonstration in the Pavilion G2 area, from stand 41.

The THP range is capable of working continuously at high speeds without rest, rivalling delta robots. Specifically, the THP550 has been designed for high-speed handling applications in food processing and end of line packaging.

TM Robotics will be showcasing the TS3000 controller alongside the THP550. This controller allows the addition of a fifth servo-driver to control external peripheral equipment. At this show, this will be a Toshiba Machine Cartesian actuator. This not only allows for extended reach, but creates a fully synchronised axis, precisely tracked by the SCARA’s movement and synchronised accurately with the Z-axis.

“Those who come along to this demonstration will see SCARA and Cartesian robots working together in synchrony at very high speeds,” explained Nigel Smith, chief executive officer at TM Robotics. “This added flexibility means end users can extend the reach of a SCARA robot or transfer products from one workstation to another easily, without human intervention.”

The in-built conveyor tracking function of the controller allows the robot to pick or place parts from a moving conveyor in high speed handling applications with speed, accuracy and synchronicity. Additionally, the TS3000 controller can be easily integrated with a vision system if required.

To see this technology first hand, visitors can register their attendance at the official MSV website, where they can also find the catalogue of exhibitors at the event. For more information on TM Robotics, e-mail or call the European headquarters on +44 (0)1707 290370.
