Six-axis robot range caters for all industries

The vertically articulated robot series is available in three models, each with varying reach and payload specifications. Compared to previous ranges, the improved TVM six-axis robot series also provides a longer arm length in each of its three models. The largest model, the TVM1500, provides a maximum reach of 1715mm, the TVM1200 can reach up to 1418mm and the smallest model, the TVM900, provides a maximum reach of up to 1124mm. In addition to three distinctive arm lengths, the operating range of each model can be expanded by mounting the robot on an optional linear actuator.

Even though the robot body has been reduced in weight, the six-axis TVM range can still manage payloads of up to 20kg, with the TVM900 model. The smaller models, the TVM1200 and TVM1500 can each manage 15kg and 10kg respectively. 

The robots also provide complete hardware compatibility with other Toshiba Machine equipment, including the company’s robot vision recognition package TSVision3D. What’s more, all three models are compatible with the same robot controller, Toshiba Machine’s TSL3200. As with all Toshiba Machine industrial robots, the controllers are programmed in SCOL, a programming language similar to BASIC.
