TMRobotics logo 400July 21, 2020

Following several years of development, TM Robotics has released the new TS5000 robot controller. The new controller forms a launch pad for the next generation of industrial robots from Shibaura Machine — formerly known as Toshiba Machine. Boasting faster position control, the TS5000 improves robot precision and shortens cycle times. 

The TS5000 robot controller has been engineered by Shibaura Machine’s experts in Japan. Compared to previous controllers, the TS5000 provides improved synchronisation and control. Its position cycle is three times faster than previous models, allowing more control during fast movements. Combined with an automatic adjustment function for acceleration, these features reduce vibration and stress.

Communication functions of the TS5000 have also been enhanced. The controller enables real-time data transmission between the robot and controller, allowing manufacturers to integrate the system into a smart factory environment. This improved communication also enables vibration analysis for predictive and preventative maintenance.TMR297 TS5000 controller 400

The new TS5000 also has dedicated ports for status feedback and control, allowing additional ports for priority communications such as vision interfacing and control. For non-protocol communication, the TS5000 boasts eight ports — a four-fold increase on the previous TS3000 model.

As well as improved communication, the TS5000’s physical features have also been upgraded. Achieving a 33 per cent smaller footprint than previous controllers and weighing just 10kg, the controller has minimal impact on factory footprint. This compact design also allows for easy installation.

Alongside the new controller, TM Robotics has released the new TP5000 teach pendant as an optional add-on. Sometimes referred to as a ‘teach box’, a robot’s teach pendant is used to control the robot manually. This addition is important for maintenance and troubleshooting purposes, as well as fine tuning the robot after installation.TMR297 TP5000 teach pendant 400

The TS5000 controller is the latest robotic technology from the team at Shibaura Machine” explained Nigel Smith, President and CEO of TM Robotics. “As Shibaura Machine’s primary distribution partner, TM Robotics will be providing this new controller and its accompanying teach pendant to users in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australia, as well as North and South America.

The controller boasts huge improvements in usability compared to previous models and will provide the baseline controller for the next generation of robots from Shibaura Machine in Japan. This includes the most recent THE600 SCARA model, which is available to order now.

Cybersecurity and Manufacturing – Keeping Critical Information Safe From Attackers

JAE AutomationWe all know that we’re supposed to back up our data and secure our devices against attack. But too often we put it off until it’s too late. We’re busy, and we’ll get to it another day. And then, one day, we turn on our device, look for a file, and realize something is wrong. We’ve been hacked.

The thought of losing our files, pictures, and data is scary. Scale that up to an entire company and the consequences can be severe. Think about the amount of critical and sensitive information the typical manufacturing facility has access to. Sensitive customer records, design and engineering data, intellectual property, and industrial control systems for high risk manufacturing processes – there’s a lot to lose.
