Epson says its “robust” SCARA lineup now offers “even more robots for more applications”
Epson Robots, the global leader in SCARA Robots, expands their SCARA robot lineup with the introduction of 3 new robots – the LS20, LS6-500 and LS6-700.
Built to carry heavy objects at high speeds, the LS20 offers a maximum payload of 20 kg and arm lengths in 800mm and 1000mm. Both arm lengths feature a 420mm Z-Axis length.
Notable features include high speed cycle times, superior accel/decel rates with smooth start/stop motion and reduced vibration due to Epson’s proprietary QMEMS vibration sensing technology.
Epson says the LS20 is “extremely useful in industries ranging from automotive and appliance to industrial”.
The company adds that the machine is ideal for applications that require a longer reach, larger payload or increased tooling size such as heavy parts assembly, material handling, large area dispensing, and packaging.
The LS6-500 featuring 500mm of reach and LS6-700 featuring 700mm of reach join the existing LS6-600 to add varied arm lengths to the 6 kg payload LS6 models.
Michael Ferrara, director of Epson Robots, says: “For the last several years, Epson’s LS-Series robots have been the robot of choice for high quality, low-cost automation.
“Now with the addition of 3 new models, we’re able to offer cost-effective solutions for an even larger variety of applications.”
All LS-Series robots come with Epson’s RC90 controller which provides users with the perfect combination of ease-of-use, power and reliability.
Also included is Epson’s user-friendly RC+ 7.0 Development Software which features a multitude of options including Vision Guidance, DeviceNet, Profibus, EtherCat, Microsoft .NET support, GUI Builder and much more. The LS-Series robots are available in standard and ISO 4 Clean models.
