Meet the TM Cobot Series

The TM Cobot Series are safer, simpler to program, and easier to integrate with other equipment.

What makes TM robotic arms different is their Robot Vision. They are the only cobot on the market with a built-in vision system that allows them to sense their environment. By giving them cobots eyes to see, it creates a world of difference in how they can perform.

Benefits of Cobot Automation

Did you know collaborative robots or cobots were specifically built to work alongside humans in a collaborative workspace and to perform routine or repetitive tasks, like placing products into boxes or polishing parts. And perform dirty or dangerous jobs, like sanding furniture or sorting trash for recycling.

The cost of a cobot is much less than the large industrial robot you see in automotive manufacturing. A collaborative robot is significantly less. As an example, the TM5 cobot from Omron starts at around $38,000 (and it’s the only cobot on the market with a built-in vision system). The actual cost will depend on your application, payload and reach requirements, and the end-of-arm-tool (EOAT) you’ll need.

Because cobots have a light frame, they use smaller components and motors, which costs less to build and keeps the price down. And because the actuators are smaller, it also means less power consumption.

Because of their affordability, businesses of any size can realize the benefits of automation.

Cobots are simple to program and require no previous experience. Even the most inexperienced user can quickly learn to program a cobot – in a matter of minutes instead of days.

Collaborative robots are safe. They can work right alongside human workers and are equipped with sensors that stop the robot’s movement when a person or obstacle enters their workspace.
