Epson Robots showcases robotics solutions for factory automation at ATX East

Epson Robots showcased its range of robotics solutions in factory automation at the Automation Technology show, ATX East.

At its booth was the new Synthis T3 All-in-One SCARA robot. It comes with a built-in controller, a new technology feature that is designed to reduce space requirements and simplify setup.

It offers an easy-to-install and fast integration solution perfect for simple applications such as pick and place, assembly, parts handling and dispensing, says the company. It is said to be ideal for customers looking to automate their factory without using complex slide-based solutions.

The C4 6-Axis robot with Force Guidance is a small, powerful robot with high repeatability and fast cycle times, says Epson. It is ideal for demanding applications requiring 6-Axis dexterity.

Featuring a unique compact wrist for efficient motion in tight spaces and a slim body elbow design for optimum workcell layout, this robot has a wide range of motion, so parts can be accessed from virtually any angle.

Integrated Force Guidance helps drive placement precision to even higher levels. The robot is able to “feel” its way into areas with high precision placement requirements.

ATC Automation, provider of custom automated assembly and test equipment, showed Epson’s Flexion N2 6-Axis Robot, which features the world’s first patented compact folding arm design that is changing the scope of robot-based automation.
