Six Axis Technology
TV Series vertical articulated robots

Toshiba Machine's range of 6 axis robots offers our customers the additional flexibility required in certain applications. The technology is based upon the clean, quick and high performance level of the SCARA but with the full movement of 6 axes. The TV Series six axis robot uses an absolute position detection system, with a robust AC motor at its heart.
  • 6-Axis Vertically articulated arms 
  • Available in 800, and 1000mm arm lengths
  • Up to 10kg payload
  • Ideal for machine loading/unloading and assembly applications
  • Supports cleanroom design and waterproof design (-IP)
Hiwin Rail and Blocks 
Cut to length for quick delivery

Hiwin linear guideways provide a type of linear motion that utilizes re-circulating rolling elements between a profiled rail and a bearing block.
Rankin Automation stocks standard rail and blocks, and each series features different options for sizes, loading capabilities and accuracies.  Our in-house cutting capabilities means that we can cut rail to your specific length and ship on the same day.
