Introduction of Technologies

We'll introduce you the technologies employed in our robots.
Additionally, you can view moving pictures about technologies.

Servo Techniques

Servo Techniques

TOSHIBA MACHINE has developed a new LSI (V-engine, C-engine) by use of the servo technology that the company has been building for over 30 years as with the NC machines (TOSNUC) and general-purpose amplifiers (BS series), and has had it incorporated into the TS3000 series robot controllers. With the improvement in control period due to computation by hardware, settling time has been reduced and cycle time improved.

Cell Production System

Cell Production System

Picture on the left is a cell production system robot running at a manufacturing site of TOSHIBA MACHINE.
TOSHIBA MACHINE's has built this system robot from the three viewpoints, in terms of advanced technology, of power-saving, automation, and efficiency.

Using the system robot will bring about an effect not only on long-time continuous operation but on quality improvement.

Sensorless Compliance Control

In order to provide a wide range of application and achieve high productivity in production site, TOSHIBA MACHINE is engaged in the development of "intelligent robot technology" with the technical support of Toshiba Corporate Research & Development Center.

(1) Sensorless Compliance Control

(1) Sensorless Compliance Control

With this control, the robot detects external force exerted on its hands without using the 6 - axis dynamic sensation sensor to have a flexible control over arms in response to external force. Position errors of workpieces are absorbed.

(2) Active acceleration/deceleration control

Automatically changes the acceleration of the robot according to the movement pattern and load conditions. Improves cycle time and reduces the load on the robot mechanism.

(3) Collision detection function (*Under development as of April 2012)

When the robot collides against an object, this function detects it without using an external sensor to stop the robot immediately. Minimizes the damage to the hands or workpiece upon collision.
