G1 Mini SCARA Robots
EPSON Robots Posted 03/16/2010EPSON Robots, a global leader in advanced robotic technology, introduces the new EPSON G1 Mini SCARA Robots. Leading the industry with best in class cycle rates, precision assembly and motion range, EPSON G1 robots provide an ultra compact yet powerful solution for even the most demanding applications.
“Our goal is to continue our Power of Choice initiative by providing customers with the right robot for the job. While EPSON G1 Mini SCARA robots are small in stature, they are built to the same high EPSON quality and performance standards that our customers have come to know and expect” stated Michael Ferrara, Director of EPSON Robots. “G1 robots are extremely rigid and can handle higher payloads and better duty cycles with faster cycle times vs. competitive models. High rigidity construction combined with superior controls enable G1 robots to achieve industry leading speed and precision which results in more profits for our customers.”
G1 Mini SCARA robots are available in arm reaches of 175 or 225mm. They are also available in Clean & ESD compliant configurations. G1 robots lead the industry in footprint to workspace ratios. 225mm G1 robot arms can handle many applications with large working range requirements that other robots need 250mm of reach to handle, thus saving our customers valuable floor space.
Unique to the G1 Mini SCARA robots is that both 3 and 4 axis models are available. The new 3-axis models allow for superior performance for press fit screw tightening and linear dispensing applications. Designed for maximum performance in a small footprint, G1 robots are the most powerful and compact mini SCARAs available in the market today.
Our low cost, high performance Micro PowerDrive RC180 Controller comes standard with EPSON G1 Mini SCARA robots and 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 G1 with Micro PowerDrive Controller?
With the addition of G1 Mini SCARA robots, EPSON now offers 200+ G-Series SCARA robots, ranging from 175mm to 1,000mm in reach and up to 20Kg payloads. EPSON G1 robots are ideally suited for applications and industries which require high precision assembly of small components, demanding cycle times and compact production lines. Chances are that EPSON has the model and configuration you need for your next application since our G-Series lineup now gives customers more power of choice than ever before.
