October 31, 2018 – Omron has announced the global launch of the TM series collaborative robot family, which includes 12 robots.
Arm lengths range from 900 mm to 1,100 mm to 1,300 mm with payloads of four kg, six kg, 12 kg or 14 kg.
As part of the TM series launch, Omron will release a “mobile-compatible” model, which will integrate into the LD series autonomous mobile robot. By integrating the mobile-ready TM series with the LD series, users can take automate more complex tasks such as pick-and-place onto a tray or into a container, and flexibly automate by connecting processes with autonomous mobile robots.
The flowchart-based, intuitive programming interface and easy teaching requires little to no previous robot programming experience.
The TM series comes with built-in vision and integrated lighting, allowing the user to capture products with a wide viewing angle. Equipped with image sensing functions such as pattern matching, bar code reading, and colour identification, this robot system is ideal for inspection, measurement and sorting applications.
The TM series conforms with all safety standards that enable cooperation between humans and machines and can be safely operated around people without industrial safety fencing traditionally required for industrial robots, greatly reducing the installation time. The series conforms to safety requirements for industrial robots ISO10218-1 as well as safety requirements for collaborative industrial robots ISO/TS15066.
