Toshiba Machine has developed the new high-speed SCARA robot, the THP550, which has been designed specially for high-speed handling applications in the food processing and pharmaceutical packaging fields.
The THP550 has an arm length of 550mm and a maximum payload of 2kg (4.4lb). The main new features include a lighter body weight and low inertia of the second arm. The first arm is made from solid aluminum for higher rigidity, but the robot achieves extremely fast cycle times of 0.29 per seconds (1kg). The durability of the body structure has remarkable resistance under frequent acceleration and deceleration.
