SCARA

The widest range of Scara Robots in Europe

 

SCARA

Toshiba Machine’s range of SCARA industrial robots is believed to be the widest in Europe. Ranging from the tiny TH180, ideal for use in high precision applications, to the impressive TH1200A, which finds a home in heavy duty pick and place applications, the entire series is easy to install, program and manage.
SCARA stands for Selective Compliant Assembly Robot Arm or Selective Compliant Articulated Robot Arm – the two acronyms are both common and are entirely interchangeable. This acronym is the key to understanding the advantages of a SCARA robot.

The first thing to recognise is the robot’s parallel-axis joint layout, which is compliant in the X-Y direction but rigid in the ‘Z’ direction, hence the term ‘Selective Compliant’. This offers enormous advantages in all sorts of primary and secondary packaging applications as well as a host of other pick and place functions. Secondly, the jointed, two-link arm layout is similar to a human arm, which is why the phrase ‘articulated’ forms part of the acronym. As a result, the robot can reach into confined areas and then fold back out of the way.

Toshiba Machines’ SCARA robots are available with a host of options, including ceiling mount, IP65, conveyor synchronisation and vision.
