TOSHIBA ARTICULATE ROBOT
 
The TV1000
The easy to use TV1000 has a total arm length of 1000mm, a reach of 1090mm and a composite maximum speed of 9.61 metres per second. It has a maximum cycle time of 0.6 to 0.7 seconds, repeatability of ±0.03mm and a maximum payload of five kilograms. It is controlled using Toshiba Machine’s new TS3100 controller, which is programmed in SCOL, a language similar to BASIC - as are all Toshiba Machine industrial robots.
The TS3100 features a built-in Ethernet port, making conveyor and vision synchronisation simple. The controller also includes the built-in TCmini PLC, which allows control of I/O equipment, regardless of operation and program.

The TV800
The TV800 has a total arm length of 800mm, a reach of 92mm and a composite maximum speed of 8.06 metres per second. The robot has a maximum cycle time of 0.4 to 0.5 seconds, repeatability of ±0.02mm and a maximum payload of five kilograms. Like the TV1000, it is controlled using Toshiba Machine’s TS3100 controller and has the option of a teach pendant for easy access outside the robot cell.

Both six axis robots use an absolute position detection system, with a robust AC motor at its heart
