Epson Robots has expanded its VT6L-Series lineup with the VT6L-DC All-in-One 6-Axis Robot and increased the functionality of its “no-code, easy-to-use” Epson RC+ Express programming software.
A DC-powered version of the VT6L, the new VT6L-DC All-in-One 6-Axis robot delivers next-level technology and is ideal for mobile solutions, says Epson.
Now, an industrial-grade, 6-axis robot can be mounted to an AMR (autonomous mobile robot) for warehousing applications or on a mobile platform to easily transport between workstations. The VT6L-DC offers the same powerful features found in Epson’s high-end robots, at an exceptional value.
With a built-in controller, reach of up to 900 mm and a payload of up to 6 kg, it enables high throughput and operational flexibility in a space-saving design. The VT6L-DC comes equipped with two powerful development environments – Epson RC+ for full-featured, easy-to-learn programming and Epson RC+ Express for no-code programming.
Ideal for automation novices with little to no programming experience, Epson RC+ Express offers a simple, visual-based teaching environment, an easy-to-follow, block-style format, ready-to-use templates, and other time-saving features to get Epson SCARA and 6-Axis robots up and running fast.
Previously available on select Epson robots, the intuitive software now works with hundreds of Epson SCARA and 6-Axis robots, from the All-in-One Series to the highest-performance GX- and C-Series.
The software is equipped with time-saving features such as Epson proprietary Focus Assist technology with autogenerated fields for quick and easy setup, and a built-in 3D simulator to help visualize and fine-tune applications.
Scott Marsic, group product manager, Epson Robots, says: “As more businesses implement automation to address workforce challenges, Epson recognizes that more users require not only easy-of-use applications but also the flexibility to be mobile.
“Epson is committed to providing a simplified automation experience. Solutions like the VT6L-DC empower warehousing, logistics and machine tending operators to move a traditional 6-Axis robot from place to place rather than mounting it in a single, stationary location.
“And, with simple, visual-based programming software like RC+ Express, users can get their robotic automation solutions up and running quickly.”
