Epson to showcase its latest robots at Pack Expo

Epson Robots will be showcasing the latest 6-axis and SCARA robots as well as its integrated parts feeding solutions at Pack Expo Las Vegas.

Epson will also lead a discussion on how to plan and implement automation projects.

6-axis robots

Thanks to their SlimLine design, Epson 6-axis robots can save on valuable factory floor space and fit where other robots cannot – with no compromise to performance, speed and reach.

The 6-Axis robots can reach into confined workspaces from many angles with ultra-smooth motion, making them ideal for packaging applications.

The VT6L All-in-One 6-axis robot, the latest entry level offering with a 6 kg payload and 900 mm reach, features groundbreaking technology at an ultra-low cost of $13,900.

It is ideal for simple applications such as load/unload, packaging and parts assembly.

The award-winning N-series 6-Axis robots feature the world’s first compact folding arm technology providing the optimum in motion and workspace efficiency.

The N-series demos will show expertise in material handling and fulfillment center package processing.

Integrated parts feeding solution

Shown with a high speed Epson RS3 SCARA robot, the IntelliFlex Feeding System, powered by Epson Robots’ IntelliFlex Software and Vision Guide, delivers a simplistic and affordable feeding solution and is an innovative alternative to bowl and flexible feeder solutions available in the market today.

The IntelliFlex System will be demonstrated in a high speed kitting flexible feeding application.

SCARA robots

The T3 All-in-One SCARA robot will be shown in a vision-guided pick and place / sorting application.

At the low price of $7,495, it’s the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions.

It features a unique All-in-One design with built-in controller and power for end-of-arm tooling.

Designed for heavy payload applications, the new LS10-B SCARA robot will show how well it performs automotive quality inspection.

As a refresh to the current LS-series, it offers notable new and improved features including faster cycle times, a lower cable duct profile, ideal for hard to reach work cell layouts, built-in camera cable for easy vision system setup, new top-of-arm layout for enhanced usability, and a batteryless encoder to minimize downtime and reduce overall cost of ownership.

Epson Robots will be at booth LS5989.
