Omron Launches TM Series Collaborative Robot Accelerating The Harmonization of Humans and Machines

Omron announced the global launch of the TM series collaborative robot family in 40 countries in order to realize an innovative manufacturing environment where humans and machines work in harmony. With its various vision functionalities and simple, intuitive programming environment, Omron will further enable safe, flexible, and collaborative manufacturing between human and machine.

As changing consumer trends continue to shorten product life cycles, manufacturers are increasingly looking to quickly and flexibly set up production lines to meet frequent product change-overs. In addition, as labor shortage becomes more "real" manufacturers are striving to automate the simpler and monotonous tasks, making it increasingly necessary to create a workplace where people can contribute with more creative tasks.

Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot

Omron's TM series provides a unique solution to easily install a robot to automate applications such as picking, packing, and screwdriving which, although traditionally performed by humans, can be challenging to easily automate. As part of the TM series launch, Omron will release a "mobile-compatible" model which will seamlessly integrate into the market leading LD series autonomous mobile robot. By integrating the mobile-ready TM series with the LD series, users can automate more complex tasks such as pick and place onto a tray / into a container and flexibly automate by connecting processes with autonomous mobile robots.


Three Key Features of Omron's TM Series Collaborative Robot

Intuitive programming interface reduces programming time
Reduced installation and setup times compared to traditional industrial robots. The flowchart based intuitive programming interface and easy teaching requires little to no previous robot programming experience.

Integrated on-arm vision system reduces setup time
The TM series comes with built-in vision and integrated lighting, allowing the user to capture products with a wide viewing angle. Equipped with image sensing functions such as pattern matching, bar code reading, and color identification, this robot system makes inspection, measurement and sorting applications extremely easy to set up out of the box.

Conforms to all human / machine collaborative safety standards reducing installation time
The TM series conforms with all safety standards that enable cooperation between humans and machines and can be safely operated around people without industrial safety fencing traditionally required for industrial robots, greatly reducing the installation time. (Conforms to safety requirements for industrial robots ISO10218-1 as well as safety requirements for collaborative industrial robots ISO/TS15066)

12 Robots in the TM Series Collaborative Robot Series

Omron will introduce 12 robots in the TM series with a combination of the following specifications.

Arm length: 900 mm, 1100 mm, 1300 mm
Payload: 4 kg, 6kg, 12kg, 14kg
Power supply: AC, DC
Conforming or not conforming to SEMI S2 Safety Guidelines
