Techman Robot – collaborative robots

Techman Robot are a pioneering manufacturer of collaborative robots. Based in Taiwan, Techman combines the two words “Technology” and “Human”. Techman’s vision is to apply technology to enrich human life, which directly applies to the definition of a collaborative robot – people working in man-machine collaboration on the production line, away from the messy, dangerous and stressful work environment and greatly increasing production efficiency. While the world is bracing for Industry 4.0 to take full effect and the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing is coming, Techman are focused on advancing automation development through extensive R&D. Their R&D process utilised hundreds of industry experts and academics to help develop the TM Robot family in just 4 years. This commitment to excellence demonstrates Techman’s vision to enhance the development of automation, in the hopes that collaborative robots can become a valued tool in this new age.

Vision System

Techman Robot collaborative robots are fitted with a vision system that has quickly challenged the stereotype of a traditional industrial robot. This built-in intelligent vision system utilises a 5MP camera and is a huge technological breakthrough for TM Robot, producing the perfect integration of the vision system with the collaborative robot hardware and software. You no longer have to face complicated visual components like before, nor waste time spent in researching an unfamiliar robotic field such as vision, or by trying to integrate an expensive, external camera. Now, all you need is a TM Robot, which can do everything for you. The TM Robot vision system has received recognition from many robot vision manufacturers. The functions it provides include totem pairing, object position, image enhancement mode, bar code and QR identification, text identification and colour differentiation. These diversified functions have all been integrated in the control system of TM Flow. Programming is simply and by defining these steps, you can easily design the robot’s vision tasks and with a little practice, you can complete visual pick & place teaching in 5 minutes.

In combination with TM Robot manual teaching and the built-in intelligent vision system, you can complete pick & place teaching in only 5 minutes. You don’t even need to have an extensive programming background to successfully programme a TM cobot.

Simple and Safe

TM-Flow has made each tool module simple to use. Operate and programme TM Robots via a tablet, computer or smartphone. This makes for painlessly start-up, quick learning and the ability to create a genuine main-machine collaborative environment.

A 150N Force Limiting cobot. TM cobots comply with the safety requirements for collaboration of humans and robots as specified in ISO 10218. When the robot collides with an object and has been detected by the sensor, it will immediately stop to protect personal safety.

6 Collaborative Robots in the range

With 6 different cobots in the product line, ranging from 4kg to 14kg payload and 700mm to 1300mm reach, Techman has a collaborative robot to suit virtually any cobot task.
