Tue, 08/17/2010 - 7:06am

Toshiba Machine (Elk Grove, IL) has developed TH-A Series rigid gears for its SCARA 6-axis robots, providing quicker acceleration/deceleration, a longer life span, and easier maintenance. With the new gears, axis one and two of the TH-A combine to provide a near 360° working area. The TH-A’s arms are constructed of aluminum casing, and span from 650mm to 1,200mm. Additional features include:

  • Available payloads from 10 to 20kg.
  • A deflection in the TH850A and TH1050A of less than 1mm when handling the maximum payload (20kg).
  • A longer robot life, according to the company.
  • Flexible piping positions, which can be easily changed by the end-user, plus internal wiring harnesses that reduce wear and tear.
