With built-in vision and a user-friendly, plug-and-play programming interface, the TM-series collaborative robot from Omron Automation is designed to work seamlessly with human workers to enhance productivity and ensure safety. Easily transportable, the robot complies with safety requirements for human-robot collaboration specified in ISO 10218-1 and ISO/TS 15066, and so requires no guarding. It can be trained to perform almost any repetitive task in any location thanks to a manual teaching function enabling operators to apply hand guidance instead of code.

The robot reduces installation and setup times compared with traditional industrial robots thanks to a flowchart-based programming interface and intuitive teaching. No prior robot programming experience is necessary.

Integrated on-arm vision system further reduces setup time. Built-in vision and integrated lighting captures parts with a wide viewing angle. Image sensing functions include pattern matching, barcode reading, color identification and more.

The introduction of the new collaborative robot is geared toward manufacturers seeking to boost production and reduce employee fatigue by automating repetitive tasks such as machine tending, loading and unloading, assembly, screw driving, gluing, testing or soldering.
