Uchimura Robotics has joined the TM Robotics distributor network. The company says it has made the move in part to fulfill growing demand for high speed, high payload robots. TM Robotics is the authorized partner of Shibaura Machine, supplying the company’s six-axis, Cartesian and SCARA robots. The partnership allows Uchimura Robots to add traditional robot models to its product offering.

Uchimura Robots has traded in collaborative robots since the company’s inception in 2019. Uchimura Robotics is a distributor of collaborative and mobile robotics components.

Shibaura Machine, which rebranded from the Toshiba Machine name in April 2020, manufacturers a range of industrial robot types, including the largest range of SCARA models on the market. Outside of Japan, this range is exclusively supplied by members of the TM Robotics distributor network, of which Uchimura Robotics joined officially on April 1. Uchimura Robotics’ offering now includes the latest industrial models from Shibaura Machine, including the newly released THE600 SCARA model.

"There’s no denying the potential of collaborative robots," said Nigel Smith, CEO and president at TM Robotics. "In fact, Shibaura Machine launched its own highly anticipated cobot at the International Robot Exhibition (IREX) in Japan last year, which we will be bringing to the market in the near future. Despite the potential, there are some applications where a cobot just won’t suffice and a traditional machine is required."
