Dayton, Ohio — The high-speed EPX2050 robot provides versatility and superior performance in standard industrial, automotive and aerospace coating and dispensing applications. The six-axis EPX2050 is ideal for painting contoured parts such automotive car bodies and plastic component parts, agricultural equipment and aerospace parts. The EPX2050 robot features a Factory Mutual (FM) Class 1, Div. 1 intrinsically safe (explosion-proof) rating for use in hazardous environments.
It has a 15 kg (33.1-lb) payload capacity, 2,054 mm (80.9’‘) reach, and ±0.5 mm (±0.02’‘) repeatability. The compact, highly flexible EPX2050 robot can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted to provide layout flexibility. The EPX2050 robot is available with a hollow wrist that has a 50 mm (1.97’‘) diameter. A hollow wrist facilitates mounting of spray equipment and interference between the hoses and parts/fixtures is avoided, ensuring optimum cycle time and robot reach/access.
The EPX2050 and other EPX-series robots use a special NX100-FM controller with a Factory Mutual (FM) Class 1, Div. 1 intrinsically safe (explosion-proof) rating. The controller features a robust PC architecture, Windows® CE programming pendant, and easy-to-use INFORM III programming language.
