Epson to Showcase the Latest Robots for the Packaging Industry at Pack Expo
EPSON Robots Posted 09/15/2019
Who: Epson Robots will be showcasing the latest 6-Axis and SCARA robots as well as its integrated parts feeding solutions at Pack Expo, the largest packaging event of the year. Epson will also lead a discussion on how to take the plunge in automation.
What: Robots Showcase
Thanks to their SlimLine design, Epson 6-Axis robots can save on valuable factory floor space and fit where other robots cannot – with no compromise to performance, speed and reach. The 6-Axis robots can reach into confined workspaces from many angles with ultra-smooth motion, making them ideal for packaging applications.
The VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot, the latest entry level offering with a 6kg payload and 900mm reach, features groundbreaking technology at an ultra-low cost of $13,900. It is ideal for simple applications such as load/unload, packaging and parts assembly.
The award-winning N-series 6-Axis robots feature the world’s first compact folding arm technology providing the optimum in motion and workspace efficiency. The N-series demos will show expertise in material handling and fulfillment center package processing.
Integrated Parts Feeding Solution
Shown with a high speed Epson RS3 SCARA robot, the IntelliFlex™ Feeding System, powered by Epson Robots’ IntelliFlex Software and Vision Guide, delivers a simplistic and affordable feeding solution and is an innovative alternative to bowl and flexible feeder solutions available in the market today. The IntelliFlex System will be demonstrated in a high speed kitting flexible feeding application.
The T3 All-in-One SCARA robot will be shown in a vision-guided pick and place/sorting application. At the low price of $7,495, it’s the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions. It features a unique All-in-One design with built-in controller and power for end-of-arm tooling.
Ideal for heavy payload applications, the new LS10-B SCARA robot will show how well it performs automotive quality inspection. As a refresh to the current LS-series, it offers notable new and improved features including faster cycle times, a lower cable duct profile, ideal for hard to reach work cell layouts, built-in camera cable for easy vision system setup, new top-of-arm layout for enhanced usability, and a batteryless encoder to minimize downtime and reduce overall cost of ownership.
Educational Track: The Starting Point for Robot Automation: A Beginner’s Tour, takes place on Monday, Sep. 23 from 10 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at the Innovation Stage 3 (C-1041).
Presenter-- Rick Brookshire, Director of Product Development, Epson Robots: This presentation will serve well as a starting point for those new to automation. Attendees will come away with a good understanding on how to get started with robotics in automation and the key aspects to consider.
When: The conference takes place from Monday, Sep. 23 through Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Where: Las Vegas Convention Center, 3150 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, Nev.: Epson Robots booth # LS5989
