The TH550 and TH850 scara robots are engineered with high-speed operations, high-payload capacities, and compact bodies. The TH550 reaches composite speeds of 6.21 m/sec, and the TH850 accelerates to 8.03 m/sec. Three-axis speeds for both reach 2,000 m/sec. Positioning repeatability is ±0.015 mm for the X-Y plane of the TH550 and ±0.03 mm for the TH850. Both include a full-function TS controller. Toshiba Machinehttp://rbi.ims.ca/4911-604
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
