Epson Solutions Showcase: Booth #1110
Epson C4L Long Reach 6-Axis Robot
The C4L provides a slimLine design for maximum flexibility along with long reach and up to a 4Kg payload. It includes a compact wrist pitch design to allow easier access into tight work areas.
The C4L robot workcell will show battery pack testing using Epson’s Force Guide product, which provides integrated high precision force feedback. The robot will test rotational torque values for assembled lug nuts and linear force values through wire pull testing. Proper connection of wires to batteries is critical for proper battery power in automobiles and other devices. Integrated testing as a part of the assembly process can catch quality issues early in the manufacturing process.
The C4L is ideally suited for the lab automation, medical, consumer, food, automotive, electronics, PC peripheral, semiconductor, plastics, appliance and aerospace industries where it can be used for a wide variety of applications such as part load/unload, pallet and tray transfers, kitting, assembly and many more.
When: The Battery Show takes place from Sep. 11-13
Where: Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, MI
