            Toshiba Machine has developed the new high-speed SCARA robot, the THP550, which has been designed specially for high-speed handling applications in the food processing and pharmaceutical packaging fields. 

            The THP550 has an arm length of 550mm and a maximum payload of 2kg. The main new features include a lighter body weight and low inertia of the second arm. The first arm is made from solid aluminium for higher rigidity, but the robot achieves extremely fast cycle times of 0.29 per seconds (1kg). The durability of the body structure has remarkable resistance under frequent acceleration and deceleration. 

            The THP550 is equipped with the newly developed controller, the TS3000E, which has built-in Ethernet/USB ports as standard. The new controller has the capability to share a vision system on multiple robots, so it makes conveyor and vision synchronization effortless and affordable. It also provides easy maintenance for programming data input/output.

            Additionally, the built-in PLC function allows easy connection with HMI, touch screens and control of I/O equipment, regardless of the robot operation and program. Options such as IP65 and clean-room specifications are available for this model.

                          • VISION SYSTEMS

                          • Adding a vision system to our industrial robots

                            Adding a vision system to a Toshiba Machine industrial robot is a simple and cost effective way to build on its already impressive functionality and versatility.

                            Our SCARA, six axis and Cartesian machines can be used with almost any vision software or cameras and there are installed examples across Europe using equipment from the majority of the major vision suppliers.

                          • SOFTWARE

                          • Software that makes system design and installation easy

                            Toshiba Machine’s wide range of easy to use robot software makes programming and control simple, even for engineers who are embarking on their first industrial robot project. When combined with TM Robotics training options the end result is a simple, cost effective and easily controlled installation.
                        • Options

                            • CLEAN ROOM

                            • All Toshiba Machine robots have clean room options available. When applied, this can save the significant cost of a human going in and out of the clean room. The human cost can be found in the protective suit, the time it takes to put the suit on and take it off and counteracting the potential for contamination each time a person steps over the threshold.

                              Specifications:
                              • Applications such as semi-conductor & pharmaceuticals
                              • TH-CR series extends to clean room class 10
                              • Operating speeds of Axis 2 and 3 are restricted to 80 percent
                            • CEILING MOUNT

                            • Ceiling mount capabilities make the Toshiba Machine range of SCARA robots much more versatile. They save space in the robot cell, allowing valuable manufacturing real estate to be put to other uses.

                              This function has always been available as an option on the entire range of SCARAs (except the TH250). However, since 2008 Toshiba Machine has gradually introduced catalogue versions on many of its models, which saves engineering time for the end user and the integrator.

                               Specifications:
                              • Can be suspended from the top of the work area
                              • Makes the best possible use of the available area
                            • IP65

                            • Industrial robots benefit hugely from the versatility offered by IP65 ingress protection, which allows them to be become part of the manufacturing process in food and pharmaceutical applications, rather than being limited to end of line packaging.

                              Many of the SCARA robots in Toshiba Machine’s range are produced in ‘off the shelf’ IP65 versions. Those that aren’t can take advantage of the company’s IP65 ‘hoods’, which provide similar advantages and can be retrofitted to existing robots.

                              Specifications:

                              • Applications such as semi-conductor & pharmaceuticals
                              • In case of Z-axis 400mm, the height of the robot tool flange is located 10mm lower than the standard type and Z-axis stoke becomes 390mm

                            • EXTENDED Z SHAFT

                            • Every application is unique and occasionally the need arises to position the robot some distance from the product it is handling. On these occasions, the capability to extend the z-axis stroke of a SCARA robot can be invaluable, allowing the user to opt for this cost effective technology in place of more expensive, but larger, six axis machines.

                              That this can be achieved without significantly reducing the payload, repeatability or speed of the machines simply demonstrates the versatility of the Toshiba Machine SCARA range.

                              Specifications:

                              • TH450/TH550 Z-axis stroke can be extended up to 300mm
                              • TH650/TH850/TH1050 Z-axis stroke can be extended up to 400mm
                              • Larger margin for upward or downward movement
                              • Vital in long workplaces
                            • JACKET & BELLOWS

                            • Ideal when using the robot in a hostile environment, to protect from splashing or abrasive material, a jacket and bellows combination can be a more cost effective option than full IP65 ingress protection.

                              However, this option would only normally be recommended for applications where there is no chance of contaminating the manufactured product but where the robot itself needs to be protected.

                              The hood alone is normally used in dry but dirty environments to protect the ball screw, while the bellows are ideal for wet, dirty environments.

                              Specifications:

                              • Applicable to all SCARA models
                              • Ideal when using the robot in a hostile environment.
                              • Protects from liquid splashing and abrasive materials.
                              • In the case of the Z-Axis 400mm, the height of the robot tool flange is 10mmlower than the standard model, so the z-axis stroke becomes 390mm.
                            • CONVEYOR SYNCHRONISATION

                            • Conveyor and vision synchronisation is simple with Toshiba Machine's range of industrial robots. As a result, the end user can cut costs by ‘sharing' a single camera between all of the robots on a conveyor.

                              Furthermore, the resultant, perfectly synchronized, automation reduces the incidence of damage to the conveyed items.

                              The net effect is greater efficiency and productivity, combined with savings in vision technology in asingle easy to implement package.

                              Specifications:

                              • The robot traces the conveyor’s movement
                              • Allows continuous handling of workpieces
                              • Allows supply of workpieces to a moving pallet
                              • Rotational synchronisation available
