TM Robotics, in partnership with Toshiba Machine, has unveiled the newest in the BA Cartesian series, the BAIII.
Unlike most Cartesian suppliers, the Toshiba Machine solution is a true plug-and-play as all cables, junction boxes, brackets, motors, and controllers are supplied with the Actuators. This means there's no need for calibration between the motor and the Actuator or between the motor and the controller, which enables users to reduce their engineering costs -- saving both time and money -- and use the BAIII as soon as it's installed.
In addition to being plug-and-play, the BAIII robot offers simple programming for user-friendly operation. Other key features include:
AC Servo-motors and absolute encoders are available in all models, thus ensuring accuracy and eliminating the need to perform a home-positioning routine. The BAIII also includes a high payload capacity, which means a horizontal mass of 250Kgs with a two-axis combination is capable of carrying up to 100Kgs, and the robot can run at a speed as high as 2000mm/sec.
As users of the Toshiba Machine Cartesian range can attest, one of the benefits the line offers is that the units can be shipped assembled for usage straight from the box. In addition, the Actuators have oil free bearings, allowing for minimal maintenance requirements.
"With this new Cartesian series we're seeing more capabilities being put into the hands of our customers, reducing their need to spend engineering time up front," said Nigel Smith, CEO of TM Robotics. "As one of the only companies offering a true plug-and-play solution, Toshiba Machine has given our customers not only an immediate cost savings, it also provides them with the added autonomy they've been looking for."
