The TM5 Collaborative Robot

The UK's first COBOT with integrated vision as standard.

The TM5 Cobot is the only collaborative robot available with integral vision, allowing a true hand and eye intelligent solution. 

With CE certification and safety approved robot features +/-0.05mm point repeatability and easy to use software and servo assist teach modes. 

Solutions can be realised in 5 minutes as opposed to weeks and the robots can operate without safety fences in co-operation with machine operatives.

Simple Collaborative Robots


With it's powerful built-in vision system and TM flow™, the TM5 can see, think and work like a human.

Smart Collaborative Robots


Users can use the hand-guiding function to teach the TM5 every pose and point in the task. An all-graphic flow chart based HMI allows people to use the TM5 with ease.

Safe Collaborative Robots


TM5 complies with the ISO/TS15066 human-robot safety requirement.

Revolutionary User Interface

You can implement your automation task with our revolutionary simple- to-use TMflow™. In combination with TM Robot hand-guided teaching and the built-in intelligent vision system, users without coding experience of industrial robots can complete a visual pick & place teaching in 5 minutes. 

Techman robots reduce your time-to-production and save your total cost in automation.

Easy Collaborative Robots


Random Selection Pick Example

The Eye-in-hand camera can be used to automate tasks without the requirement for complicated jigs. The example video demonstrates the identification of the shape and orientation of an object using the camera, and quickly and accurately picking the object from a random position.

The vision task is executed in less than a quarter of a second and therefore allows for optimised cycle times. Programming on the vison job is completely integrated into the TM Flow programming environment and the example in the video was achieved with only a few minutes of programming effort. 

TM Plug & Play Solution

With the help of TM Plug & Play, the TM5 Cobot can connect to multiple robotic peripheral products available on the market.

TM Plug & Play is available as standard allowing users to easily integrate third party perpherals to the robot.

Starting TM5 in Safe Startup Mode

Safe Startup mode should be used when you don't wish the robot arm to move during it's initialisation in order to avoid a potential collision. The robot will boot without moving and then robot arm can be manually manipulated to avoid hazard.

Start with the Control Box powered off

Press the E-Stop button on the Robot Stick, then press Power button on the Robot Stick, the 3 status LED's on the Robot Stick will flash

Wait for LED ring on robot arm to blink in light blue, robot arm can now be manipulated manually using the Free button

(Note that servos will not be powered in this state and therefore manual manipulation will require more effort than normal)

To exit Safe Startup Mode, release E-Stop button on Robot Stick

My USB memory stick is not recognised

A USB memory stick can be used for import and export of objects such as programs, components and TCP

In order for the control box to recognise the USB memory stick you must ensure that it is configured as follows:

1. Device name must be set to TMROBOT

2. Device must be formatted with file system type NTFS
