TM Robotics, in partnership with Shibaura Machine, announced it has teamed up with ASG, a certified manufacturer, provider, and service center focused on products and automated solutions for assembly. ASG will offer Shibaura Machine robots in both national and international markets. With many projects that require vertical down driving of screws, ASG was looking for a robotic partner that offered high speed, robust solutions, with advanced functionality that is also cost-effective. This partnership will give ASG customers countless opportunities to integrate ASG screw feeding systems with Shibaura Machine SCARA robots.

A division of Jergens, Inc., ASG is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, with subsidiaries in Shanghai, China, and Mumbai, India, and sales offices in Mexico and Europe. The company offers a complete line of torque control screwdrivers, workstation accessories, production aides, and precision fastening equipment. In 2015, ASG expanded its three product groups of Assembly, Industrial and Precision Fastening to include ASG Automation – providing custom solutions for complex applications. Its target industries include automotive, aerospace, medical, electronics, energy, and appliance.

“We were introduced to TM Robotics through a mutual customer who selected a Shibaura Machine TH650A SCARA robot for the automation system that they were purchasing from ASG,” said Doug Wright, Technical Services Manager at ASG. “Upon doing further research, it quickly became clear that Shibaura Machine’s flexibility and adaptability would be the perfect addition to our robotic system. We’re looking forward to showing our customers the power of the Shibaura Machine SCARA series.”

In addition to being a good value for the functionality, another reason ASG partnered with TM Robotics is its stellar customer service. By having a live person on hand to answer questions and walk partners and customers through installation, issues get solved in a timely manner.

“We’re continuing the aggressive expansion of our distributor and solution provider program in the United States, with plans to double the amount of partners this year over last year,” said Nigel Smith, founder and CEO of TM Robotics. “ASG focuses on a particular niche of the market that we’ve been hoping to fill for quite some time. We’re looking forward to working with their fantastic team.”
