TM Robotics Partners with A-Tech to Sell Toshiba Machine Industrial Robots Coast to Coast in Canada

FROM ADM BOOTH #1523 – Today TM Robotics and Toshiba Machine announced they have partnered with A-Tech Instruments Ltd., which supplies a variety of measurement and control instrumentation for research and industry, to sell and support Toshiba Machine robots in Canada. Following a dedicated search over the past year, TM Robotics executives met with A-Tech and found the company was just the partner they were looking for – focused, driven, and possessing a proven track record of customer success throughout Canada. With this new relationship, A-Tech will now be able to offer its large variety of customers a solution for any of their automation challenges with the full range of robots from Toshiba Machine, one of the only robotics companies in the world that delivers every type of robot a customer could want (Cartesian, 6-axis and SCARA).

A-Tech provides manufacturing automation, quality control, product development and product testing – the building blocks needed to achieve the measurements a customer’s application requires. It serves several industries, including automotive manufacturing and research; aerospace research and production; power generation research; structures, buildings and bridges; biomechanics research; and rail and heavy machinery, which is why a partnership that offers a variety of robotic options is so important.

“One of the key things that drew us to TM Robotics wasn’t just the power of its comprehensive line of Toshiba Machine robots, it was the stellar technical support their team provided,” said David Wilkinson, Operations Manager at A-Tech. “We feel that the combination of what our two companies offer – from automation to support – is going to be fundamental to the success of the Toshiba Machine robot business in Canada, and we’re thrilled to be a key part of it.”

TM Robotics and A-Tech are officially kicking off their relationship at the Advanced Design & Manufacturing Expo (ADM) from November 30 through December 1 in Montreal, Canada, where they will be exhibiting Toshiba Machine’s THL300 robot.

The THL300 SCARA model satisfies the growing demand for affordable, flexible automation in applications outside of the traditional robot industries. In addition, because the lightweight system generates substantially less inertia, a simplified gearbox has been used. The net result is that these robots are the most energy efficient in their class.

“Canada will play a big role in our expansion plans for North America, so we’re thrilled to finally have a driven team like A-Tech on board to sell our Toshiba Machine robots there,” said Nigel Smith, CEO of TM Robotics. “We’re looking forward to officially kicking off our partnership at ADM.”

ADM exhibition hours will run from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 30, and from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 1. For more information, visit http://admmontreal.com/en/expo.
