ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL --- TM Robotics, in partnership with Toshiba Machine, announce the newest in Toshiba Machine’s 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:
• Length of Actuator: Extensive range from 50mm to 4450mm.
• Availability: Vast range of combinations from single- to two-, three- and four-axis meet many requirements and applications.
• Applications: Transfer, inspection, palletizing, assembly, and sealing.
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.
SMASHsolar, a California-based company that preassembles frameless photovoltaic (PV) modules with a patented snap-mounting system, is among the first to implement the BAIII on its production floor. The company was looking for not just a robotics partner, but also one that could scale as it grew.
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.
