New Delhi [India], Apr. 12 (ANI): TAL Manufacturing Solutions, a subsidiary of Tata Motors Ltd. on Tuesday launched its much-awaited TAL Brabo robot in two variants, with payloads of two and 10 kilograms, priced between Rs. Five to seven lakhs.
Indigenously developed, the TAL Brabo is a 'Made in India' solution, developed to cater to micro, small and medium enterprises, as well as for large scale manufacturers who require cost-competitive automated solutions in manufacturing.
Designed and styled in-house at TAL Manufacturing and Tata Elxsi respectively, Tata AutoComp manufactured some of the critical components of the robot. Conceptualised to complement human workforce and perform repetitive, high volume, dangerous and time consuming tasks, the TAL Brabo robot, can be deployed across industries.
Having successfully tested the TAL Brabo in over 50 customer work streams so far, TAL Manufacturing is ready to supply these robots to several sectors including automotive, light engineering, precision machining, electronics, software testing, aerospace and engineering, among others, simplifying industrial manufacturing, improving quality and productivity.
"It is clearly a positive outcome from a well thought out vision and a meticulously planned and executed task, a result of focused innovation, targeted primarily at micro, small and medium enterprises, where not only large but businesses of all sizes can upgrade their operations by deploying robots, complementing their respective work forces. We call it 'Robolution', because of its power to revolutionise industrial manufacturing," R S Thakur, Non-Executive Director and Chairman - TAL Manufacturing Solutions Ltd.
"I am proud to announce a new partnership with R.T.A Motion Control Systems, a leading Italy-based group, for critical components in the TAL Brabo robot. As we move forward, we will further collaborate with R.T.A Motion Control Systems to further indigenise the TAL Brabo robot and churn out newer variants and applications for various applications across industries," he added.
The TAL Brabo is an innovative new concept, developed from an industrial user perspective to automate enterprises. Designed indigenously the TAL Brabo can be used to bring in efficiencies right from raw material handling, until packaging of finished products, and can be programmed to operate 24/7 in all situations, for continuous production, with a high degree of flexibility and even perform complex functions cost effectively.
The TAL Brabo can be used for varied applications for tasks like pick and placement of materials, assembly of parts, machine and press tending, as a sealing application, camera and vision based jobs etc. The TAL Brabo can also complement human workforce by taking over dull, dangerous and monotonous jobs.
