Dec. 8, 2016 – TM Robotics and Toshiba Machine have partnered with A-Tech Instruments Ltd., which supplies measurement and control instrumentation for research and industry, to sell and support Toshiba Machine robots in Canada.
With this new relationship, A-Tech says it will now be able to offer its “large variety” of customers a “solution for any of their automation challenges,” including Toshiba Machine’s full line of Cartesian, six-axis and SCARA robot systems for automation and materials handling needs.
TM Robotics and A-Tech officially kicked off their relationship at the Advanced Design & Manufacturing Expo (ADM) in Montreal, Que., last month where they showed off Toshiba Machine’s THL300 robot.
“Canada will play a big role in our expansion plans for North America, so we’re thrilled to finally have a driven team like A-Tech on board to sell our Toshiba Machine robots there,” said Nigel Smith, TM Robotics CEO.
“One of the key things that drew us to TM Robotics wasn’t just the power of its comprehensive line of Toshiba Machine robots, it was the stellar technical support their team provided,” added David Wilkinson, operations manager at A-Tech. “We feel that the combination of what our two companies offer — from automation to support — is going to be fundamental to the success of the Toshiba Machine robot business in Canada, and we’re thrilled to be a key part of it.”
