Many new industrial solutions are on their way to the North American market just in time for Automate 2017
ASG, a manufacturer and provider of automation solutions for assembly, will begin distributing Toshiba Machine robots in both national and international markets. The partnership will integrate ASG’s screw feeding systems with Toshiba Machine’s SCARA robots.
In 2015, ASG expanded its three production groups of Assembly, Industrial and Precision Fastening to include ASG Automation in order to target complex applications in the automotive, aerospace, medical, electronics, energy and appliance industries.
Toshiba Machine recently announced its team-up with ASG will include also its partner, TM Robotics, which will assist customers with installation and training.
Toshiba Machine and TM Robotics have previously worked together to offer Cartesian and SCARA industrial robots for assembly, machine loading/unloading and material handling applications.
“We were introducted to TM Robotics through a mutual customer who selected a Toshiba Machine TH650A SCARA robot for the automation system that they were purchasing from ASG,” said Doug Wright, technical services manager at ASG. “Upon further research, it quickly became clear that Toshiba Machine’s flexibility and adaptability would be the perfect addition to our robotic system.”
This partnership falls in line with TM Robotics plans to aggressively expand its distributor and solution provider program in the US to double the company’s number of partners this year over last.
“ASG focuses on a particular niche of the market that we’ve been hoping to fill for quite some time,” said Nigel Smith, founder and CEO of TM Robotics. “We’re looking forward to working with their fantastic team.”
The three companies will launch the relationship from booth #1668 at Automate 2017 in McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.
