Epson to Showcase its Latest Robots Solutions for Real World Automation Application Needs at ATX West
EPSON Robots Posted 02/04/2020
Who: Epson Robots, the #1 SCARA robot manufacturer in the world, will show how its latest robots meet the needs of high-performance precision parts automation applications in simulated demos at the Automation Technology show, ATX West.
What: Robots Showcase
All-in-One 6-Axis and SCARA Robots
The latest entry-level, low cost ($13,900) award-winning VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot comes with a built-in controller, a 900mm reach and payload of up to 6kg, and offers 110 V and 220 V power. This robot will show a simple pick-and-place operation illustrating how it can handle larger end-of-arm tooling for dual pick applications. Whether it's loading and unloading, packaging or parts assembly, this space-saving robot is the perfect solution for simple parts transfer automation.
The T-Series robots offer the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions. The latest low cost ($9,495) T6 All-in-One SCARA robot will demonstrate simulating an automation cell for dispensing adhesives. Featuring a space-saving built-in controller and power for end-of-arm tooling, it has a reach of 600mm and a payload of up to 6kg.
Innovative Parts Feeding Solutions
Epson’s IntelliFlex™ Feeding Systems deliver simplistic and affordable feeding solutions that are innovative alternatives to the bowl and flexible feeder solutions available in the market today. The integration of Epson robots, feeder and vision system into a single development environment dramatically reduces development time, giving manufacturers operational efficiency with quick part changeovers. The line up now includes two versions, the IntelliFlex 240 (support parts from 5 to 40mm) and IntelliFlex 530 (supports parts from 30 -150 mm).
Show attendees can test their parts at the IntelliFlex Feeding System interactive station.
The IntelliFlex 240 Feeding System with ultra-low cost ($7,495) T3 All-in-One SCARA robot will demonstrate easy part set up and changeover.
The IntelliFlex 530 Feeding System with the G6 SCARA robot will demonstrate a high speed palletizing flexible feeding application. The IntelliFlex Feeding System also accommodates two feeder single robot applications as shown by the RS3 SCARA robot using two IntelliFlex 240 Feeding Systems in a high-speed kitting flexible feeding application.
Force Guide with C4 6-Axis Robot
The flexible and compact C4 6-Axis robot will be shown with Epson Force Guide, an intuitive robot force guidance system that is easy to set up featuring a point-and-click interface with pre-configured solutions and built-in-objects, helping to reduce the development time for precision applications. With outstanding flexibility, the C4 robot is ideal for big jobs in tiny spaces and can be used for a wide variety of applications ranging from blood sample handling to DNA testing, or from instrument panel assembly to medical instrument kitting.
When: ATX West takes place from Feb. 11 to 13, 2020
Where: Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Calif., Epson booth #4211
