Toshiba Machine Co. America has upgraded its TH series of Scara robots.
The new TH-A series features a 20-30 percent improvement in cycle times, larger payloads and better repeatability.
Toshiba offers the new line in three models: TH650A, TH850A and TH1050A.
Standard cycle times are 0.31 second with a 4.4-pound payload on the TH650A, and 0.39 second with an 11-pound payload on the TH850A and TH1050 models.
The maximum payload is 22 pounds for the TH650A and 44 pounds for the two larger models. The TS controller can control a maximum of five axes at the same time.
Scaras are compact robots that pick up a part, then quickly spin to move the part to another location.
A rigid construction and vibration-free performance will give a longer life for the robot, said Toshiba of Elk Grove Village, Ill.
