Keywords: Robots, Assembly
Intertronics has announced a new variant of the Fisnar TMB100 SCARA robot – for pick and place applications (see Plate 7). It is designed for placing and removing components from a variety of assemblies with the use of a wide range of vacuum and mechanical grippers.
The TMB100 can carry a maximum weight of 5kg with repeatability of ±0.02mm. Maximum point-to-point movement is 1,500mm/sec. An on-board 32-bit processor allows fast interpolation of lines and arcs. whilst a secondary processor provides PLC functions independently of the motion control system, enabling fast and easy integration with other devices.

Programming is easy using a teaching box or from a PC via RS232 interface. Software features include palletising functions for easy setup of pick and place applications, block editing commands, conditional branching, labels and loops. With direct teaching, point locations can be programmed simply by moving the robot's arm to the desired positions.
