EPSON C3 Robots - New, Unique SlimLine Design

EPSON C3 Robots - New, Unique SlimLine DesignCarson, CA - October 23, 2009 - EPSON Robots, a global leader in advanced robotic technology, introduces the new EPSON C3 Compact 6 Axis Robots. Leading the industry with best in class cycle time, precision and motion range, EPSON C3 robots provide superior performance for even the most demanding and complex applications.

"Unique to the EPSON C3 is our new SlimLine design which provides exceptionally advanced flexibility" stated Michael Ferrara, Director of EPSON Robots. "The enhanced new slim body and compact wrist design allows for greater motion range and less mechanical restrictions. The robot can easily reach into confined and restricted work spaces from many angles with smooth motion not achievable with similar sized competitive models."

With the ability to maximize part throughput for even the most demanding cycle time requirements, C3 robots are up to 43% faster than similar sized competitor models and lead the industry with best in class cycle rates. The tight integration of powerful motors and amplifiers along with ultra high resolution feedback and superior controls provide unmatched motion performance including higher acceleration and deceleration rates as well as advanced linear interpolated motion.

Designed for maximum performance, C3 robots use ultra high quality components to achieve high rigidity in a light weight arm. All these industry leading characteristics make EPSON C3 robots the most flexible and unique compact 6 axis robots available in the market today.

Our low cost, high performance Micro PowerDrive RC180 Controller comes standard with the EPSON C3 robots which provides the ultimate experience in ease of use, compact size, and reliability. In addition to all of these great features, the RC180 controller also provides our industry leading EPSON RC+ Controls software and lots of fully integrated options such as: Vision Guidance, .Net support, Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP and much more. All this at an incredibly low price! Why choose a low performance solution when you can have a high performance EPSON C3 with Micro PowerDrive Controller?

C3 robots are ideal for small parts assembly, dispensing, lab automation, medical device assembly, machine tending, material handling, packaging, electronics and many other applications.
