Stäubli Robotics’ TS series of high speed SCARA robots are designed for speed, rigidity and precision. The line includes the TS40, TS60 and TS80 with a range of 400-, 600- and 800-mm reach and a payload of 8 kg.

The robots feature four degrees of freedom, a hardened plastic external housing and electric servo-driven motors for reliability. The robots utilize the CS8C controller, which features a compact lightweight design and is suited for applications that require complex process control. The controller utilizes the VAL3 programming language, which is adapted to robotics and features numerous possibilities to communicate with the outside world. These include several different Fieldbus options, Ethernet, ModBus and an offline programming software package (SRS) for ease of integration and use.

According to the company, the robot series is adaptable and well-suited for a variety of high speed, precision applications including pick-and-place, material handling, packaging, assembly, loading, testing and dispensing. They increase productivity and throughput without giving up floor space, making them suited for the food, pharmaceutical/medical device, PV, automotive, electronics and other industrial market segments.

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
