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.
An EPSON 6-axis robot picks up steel blanks and feeds a stamping press. The robot automation work cell increased production 300% over the previous manual operation. In addition the robot removed an operator from a potentially hazardous work environment.
The end user designed and installed the complete robot work cell and has plans to implement more robot automation.
