TOSHIBA Industrial Robot

The customer can choose a robot that meets the target processes and needs from a lineup of four products. A wide variety of our products bring complete customer satisfaction.

TOSHIBA SCARA Robots
These industrial robots are most suitable for automating assembly and inspection, for instance.Appropriate arm length and model can be selected to suit the customer's application from a wide variety of choices.

THL Specifications

TOSHIBA Vertically Articulated Robots
Vertically articulated robots feature superior high speed and outstanding light weight design, and are equipped with functions including collision detection and active acceleration/deceleartion control.

TOSHIBA TSAssist Robot program creation support tool - A 3D-model simulator function is provided to enable offline checking of the operation range, operation time, I/O, and other parameters.

Servo Techniques
TOSHIBA MACHINE has developed a new LSI (V-engine, C-engine) by use of the servo technology that the company has been building for over 30 years as with the NC machines (TOSNUC) and general-purpose amplifiers (BS series), and has had it incorporated into the TS3000 series robot controllers. With the improvement in control period due to computation by hardware, settling time has been reduced and cycle time improved.
Cell Production System
Picture on the left is a cell production system robot running at a manufacturing site of TOSHIBA MACHINE. TOSHIBA MACHINE's has built this system robot from the three viewpoints, in terms of advanced technology, of power-saving, automation, and efficiency.

Using the system robot will bring about an effect not only on long-time continuous operation but on quality improvement.
Sensorless Compliance Control
In order to provide a wide range of application and achieve high productivity in production site, TOSHIBA MACHINE is engaged in the development of "intelligent robot technology" with the technical support of Toshiba Corporate Research & Development Center.
(1) Sensorless Compliance Control
Picture on the left is a cell production system robot running at a manufacturing site of TOSHIBA MACHINE. TOSHIBA MACHINE's has built this system robot from the three viewpoints, in terms of advanced technology, of power-saving, automation, and efficiency.

Using the system robot will bring about an effect not only on long-time continuous operation but on quality improvement.
(2) Active acceleration/deceleration control
Automatically changes the acceleration of the robot according to the movement pattern and load conditions. Improves cycle time and reduces the load on the robot mechanism.
(3) Collision detection function (*Under development as of April 2012)
When the robot collides against an object, this function detects it without using an external sensor to stop the robot immediately. Minimizes the damage to the hands or workpiece upon collision.
Robots with Special Specifications
TOSHIBA MACHINE has a lineup not only of SCARA Robots and Vertically Articulated Robots but also of Robots with Special Specifications for partner companies.

In many cases, one and the same system is supported by every type of robot. However, please note that those robots have different speed and accuracy for each robot type and that we will be able to offer our robots at a low price depending on the robot type.

SCARA type, vertically articulated type and Cartesian coordinate type each have their area of speciality. This is our policy: first let us customer's request in terms of cost, installation area, use, and the system the customer wants to implement and so on, and then allow us to suggest an optimum system that meets the customer's request.
