Toshiba Machine’s TH Series has been upgraded to the TH-A Series of extreme performance Scara Robots.

Consisting of three models, the TH650A, the TH850A and the TH1050A, these robots offer a 20 to 30 per cent improvement in cycle time (with higher payloads) compared to previous models.

Standard cycle times are 0.31 seconds with a 2-Kg payload for the TH650A, and 0.39 seconds with a 5-Kg payload for the TH850A and the TH1050A.

The rigid construction and vibration-free performance of the TH-A Series result in a longer robot life. The TH-A Series features a sealed labyrinth structure as standard. Piping positions are flexible, and may easily be changed by the end-user. And because two harnesses are in the robot arm, it’s easy to replace them.

Other features of the TH-A Series include lower profiles, reduced noise levels and easy maintenance.

Maximum payload mass for the TH650A is 10.0 Kg and maximum composite speed is 7.52 m/s, while the TH850A and TH1050A can each carry 20.0 Kg (TH850A maximum speed is 8.13 m/s and TH1050A reaches up to 9.15 m/s).
