Epson America

Epson America, Inc. is a global technology company at the forefront of technological revolutions in imaging, robotics, precision machinery and electronics.

Epson America, Inc. is the U.S. affiliate of Japan-based Seiko Epson Corporation, a global technology company at the forefront of technological revolutions in imaging, robotics, precision machinery and electronics. Epson offers an extensive array of award-winning image capture and image output products for the consumer, photographic, business and graphic arts markets. The company is also a leading supplier of value-added point-of-sale (POS) printers and transaction terminals for the retail market. Founded in 1975, Epson America Inc. is headquartered in Long Beach, California.

EPSON Robots are well known for leading the industry in ease of use, performance and reliability. Our RC520 Controller was one of the first PC based controllers introduced by a robot manufacturer and we were the first to offer Active X Controls (now .NET support) to allow easy integration of 3rd party products into robot workcells. Our focus has been to keep things simple and easy to use and just one demo of our EPSON RC+ Software shows we are on the right track. Our SCARA robots are 2nd to none in terms of performance and reliability due to our never ending push to build and offer next generation products. Our 2 tiered controls approach offers a value oriented "low end" yet high performance controller and Open Architecture PC based controller with advanced power and capabilities required for even the most complex applications. Most recently we introduced our next generation PC based controller that gives more performance than ever before. We also recently introduced a new type of SCARA robot that we call SCARA+ or RS-Series and leads the industry in cycle times, small footprint, maximum work envelope usage and much more. Our G-Series SCARA robots are now up to over 200 models including table top, Multi-Mount, and Clean/ESD versions and sizes from 175mm to 1000mm in reach. On top of that, we also have lots of integrated optional products such as Vision Guidance, Force Sensing, GUI Builder, Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, Security/Audit Log and of course our .Net controls along with others.

G1 Mini SCARA Robots

Epson Robots started the Compact class of SCARA robots about 10 years ago with the simple understanding that "smaller is better". Now 10 years later, once again Epson Robots is leading the way with the same "smaller is better" priciple applied to our G1 series robots. Epson G1 175 and 225mm arms are Mini SCARA arms with the same high performance you've come to expect from all EPSON Robots. G1 cycle times lead the industry and the best part is that they not only beat competitive models in speed tests, they do it while handling larger payloads as compared to competitive models. Also, with repeatabilities down to 0.005mm G1 arms can handle many of the high precision jobs that used to require high precision XY arms which take up lots of factory space with their large footprints.EPSON G1 Mini SCARA robots are the robot of choice for super high precision, high speed applications where performance AND low cost are required. They are ideal for applications such as hard drive assembly, lab automation, electronics assembly, medical device assembly, photonics, semiconductor, telecommunications, solar, and many others.
