Epson to launch new robotic solutions at Automate

Epson Robots will be showcasing its award-winning line of SCARA and 6-axis robots at Automate, as well as introduce three new robotics solutions.

In addition, the company will lead a discussion for users new to factory automation.

Epson has more than 300 robot models, including its SCARA robot lineup – the G-Series, LS-Series, RS-Series and T-Series All-in-One. 

Epson claims to be the leading SCARA robot manufacturer in the world.

Starting at $7,495, Epson SCARA robots provide payloads up to 20 kg and reaches ranging from 175 to 1,000 mm.

Available in a variety of configurations, Epson says the robots deliver “extraordinary cycle times and extreme precision with repeatability down to 5 microns”.

Epson adds that it will expand its award-winning SCARA lineup and demonstrate a new model at Automate.

6-axis robots

Epson’s space-saving 6-Axis robots, including the C4-Series, C8-Series and N-Series, enable a remarkable range of motion with few mechanical restrictions.

With its SlimLine design, Epson 6-Axis robots can reach into confined workspaces from many angles with ultra smooth motion, making these robots some of the most flexible 6-Axis robots available in the market today.

Epson will continue its heritage of innovation by introducing a groundbreaking ultra-low cost 6-Axis robot at Automate.

Integrated solutions

Epson provides high precision robotic guidance, enabling developers to quickly build applications and reduce overall development time and cost.

Force Guide takes automation to the next level by delivering fast, tactile feedback to guide robots for high-precision parts placement.

Both solutions have an easy to use point-and-click setup and are fully integrated within the Epson RC+ development environment for easy configuration.

Epson will add to its solution portfolio by unveiling a revolutionary integrated parts feeding solution at Automate.
