Duncan, SC -- Stäubli Robotics, manufacturers of innovative and technologically advanced industrial and cleanroom robots, announces today the introduction of a new heavy payload robot; the TX200. The TX200 and TX200L are the next generation of standard and long reach high-performance material handling robots featuring impressive speed, rigidity and load capacities ranging from 100kg to 130kg and a maximum reach of 2194mm to 2594mm.

These new robots have six degrees of freedom, a fully enclosed structure for easy cleaning, and impressive 12.5 m/sec high speed motion. The robots are suitable for a wide variety of industrial and cleanroom applications including material handling, palletizing, pick and place, and machine loading/unloading.

All Staubli robots come equipped with the CS8 controller, the industry's most technologically advanced robot controller ideally suited for applications requiring complex process control. The CS8 controller utilizes the VAL3 programming language which is perfectly adapted to robotics and features numerous possibilities to communicate with the outside world including Fieldbus, Ethernet, and ModBus.
 
 “We have high expectations for the TX200 which will make its US premiere at the Assembly Technology Expo in Rosemont, IL on September 23-25, 2008. This new robot will be a great complement to our robot line in the 100 kg payload range as its very fast, precise, compact and reliable. The TX200 will find great acceptance in the automotive, semiconductor / photovoltaic, food, plastics, machine tending, and medical device markets”, says Mr. Manfred Hübschmann, World Sales Manager at Stäubli Robotics.
 
Today, Stäubli offers the widest range of 4 and 6 axis robots from 1kg to 250kg payloads and from 220mm to 3200mm reach, all controlled from the CS8 control platform.
