EPSON Robots Posted 01/29/2019
Who: Epson Robots will be showcasing its award-winning robots, including the 6-Axis- and SynthisTM T-Series All-in-One SCARA robots at the Automation Technology show, ATX West.
What: Epson Robots are designed for maximum efficiency and productivity for small parts assembly in industries ranging from automotive and medical development, to lab automation, consumer electronics, electronic components and industrial.
Epson is the #1 SCARA robot manufacturer in the world. The Synthis T
-Series All-in-One SCARA robots offer the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions. The robots come with a built-in controller, a new technology feature that reduces space requirements and simplifies setup, and the powerful Epson RC+® development environment that is included with all Epson Robots. This innovative alternative installs in minutes and virtually eliminates any space-constraint issues. It is offered at an ultra low price, starting at $7,495.
The Synthis T6 All-in-One SCARA robot will be shown with Vision Guide demonstrating inspection as well as pick and place applications using vision guidance. The first in the T-series, the Synthis T3 All-in-One SCARA robot was awarded the Vision Systems Design 2018 Innovators Award.
Epson’s space-saving 6-Axis robots can reach in to confined workspaces from many angles with ultra smooth motion, making the C4-Series, C8-Series and N-Series some of the most flexible 6-Axis robots available in market today. Payloads range from 2kg to 8kg and reach from 450 to 1,400mm. The Epson 6-Axis SlimLine design saves on valuable factory floor space without compromising performance, speed or reach. The Flexion™ N2 6-Axis robot with the world’s first folding arm design, was awarded the Thomas Edison 2018 Innovation Award.
The C4 6-Axis robot workcell will be shown using Epson’s new Force Guide integrated solution with various application examples. Force Guide provides fast, tactile feedback to guide robots for high-precision parts placement. Powered by proprietary Epson Quartz Technology and driven by real-time servo system integration, it enables Epson robots to detect 6 axes of force with precision down to 0.1 N. Easy to configure and set up, Force Guide features a point-and-click interface with pre-configured solutions and built-in objects, reducing the development time for precision repeatability applications.
When: ATX West takes place from Feb. 5 to 7, 2019.
Where: Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Calif., Epson booth #4211
