Standing for Selective Compliant Articulated Robot Arm, SCARA robots were originally created to automate assembly or loading and unloading tasks with speed and precision. One of the more compact types of industrial robot, they feature a two-link arm designed to mimic the action of a human arm.

SCARA robots are ideal for industrial operations such as food processingpharmaceutical, electronics manufacturing and automotive applications where effective pick and place, inspection, assembly and packaging functionality is essential.

With a Shibaura Machine SCARA robot, components can be picked, placed, moved, packed and unpacked with ease by a robot that keeps its factory floor footprint to a minimum. We can even mount them to the ceiling.

Their speed and efficiency also makes our SCARA models an excellent choice for robot machine tending and materials handling applications.

Adding one or more Shibaura Machine SCARA robots to a production line is one of the more affordable ways to increase production speed and deliver payback on your automation investment, something that is increasingly important to remain competitive in Industry 4.0.

A cost-effective option suitable for users and system integrators, the THE series is the perfect tool for fast-cycle automation.

The well-established TH range has an arm to meet every application requirement. The range extends from 180mm to 1200mm and is capable of handling up to 20kg.

The THP range was designed to be low weight and have low inertia levels. The durable range offers a fast cycle time of 0.3 seconds, 120 cycles per minute as well as being able to operate continually for 24 hours. The THP550 has an arm length of 550mm and a maximum payload of 2kg, making it ideal for fast-paced functions in food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

The THL low energy series is a good choice for businesses looking for a cost-effective automation solution. With a payload up to 10kg, the range includes the THL500THL600 and THL700, which have arm lengths of 500mm, 600mm and 700mm respectively and all of the machines in this series offer a Z-axis rotation of 360°. The THL1200 is the largest robot machine in the range, offering a wider working envelope for a wider operational area.

Shibaura Machine also offers Cartesian and 6-axis robot models.
