Product Portfolio
  • Epson Robots

  • Modern automation solutions must meet a few simple requirements: as fast as possible, as small as possible, as inexpensive as possible. Epson offers you a wide range of unique high-speed and high-precision industrial robots.
     
      • Spider Robots - The Epson Robot Revolution

      • Thanks to its unique construction, the Epson Spider robot is not only extremely compact and incredibly fast. It also uses the maximum working range of its arm lengths 100% without the otherwise usual dead zone of classical SCARA robots!

        Extremely compact, flexible, and ideal for narrow production cells

        The Epson Spider is a new species of SCARA robots. These 4-axis robots designed like a human arm work on horizontal planes and are ideal for fast pick-and-place applications and assembly processes.
        Apart from that, the Spider combines all advantages of the high-performance Epson SCARA robots. Among them are outstanding cycle times and joining properties, high insertion forces and rigidities, superb repeatability and an excellent deadload–payload ratio.

        It is the first and only SCARA robot with a perfectly cylindrical envelope. Thanks to that, the impressively productive spider can reach all positions of its area of activity (100%) and also convinces with short cycle times 

          • Epson Spider RS3

          • Cylindrical Workspace

            Payload: 1/3 kg
            Reach: 350 mm

          • Epson Spider RS4

          • More Arm Strength

            Payload: 1/4 kg
            Reach: 550 mm

            The Epson Spider RS4 has more “arm strength” and a wider operating range than its little brother RS3. As a result, the Epson Spider RS4 is able to carry heavier loads and is optimally suited for applications with a larger envelope.

        • SCARA Robots

        • The next generation SCARA Robots
          Compact, high Speed, high Precision and wide Variety

          Look no further for your next SCARA robot as Epson Robots give you more Power of Choice than ever before. With 300 models available in sizes from 175 – 1.000mm in reach and payloads of up to 20KG, washdown models and cleanroom models, chances are that Epson has the model and configuration you need for your application. 

            • Epson SCARA G1

            • Our mini — compact power

              Payload: 0.5/1 kg
              Reach: 175 /225 mm

              The solution for tasks in most confined spaces: the Epson G1 series — developed as a micromanipulator, transfer unit or high-performance feeder for larger robots. Designed for work where a hundredth of a millimetre matters, such as for electronic manufacturing or precision-mechanical work processes. Ultralight due to its high-strength aluminium design and at the same time compact and powerful.

            • Epson SCARA G3

            • It's all about the curve

              Payload: 1/3 kg
              Reach: 250 /300/ 350 mm

              A high percentage of all assembly work is performed in the same arm position. Therefore, Epson SCARA-G3 are available with a left-curved first arm (sine) or a right-curved first arm (cosine). The patented arm geometry allows considerably reduced movement cycle times, since time-consuming swivelling to change arm positions is obsolete in most cases. The G3 is also available with a straight arm. The devices are particularly suitable for use in confined spaces as they are common in medical engineering and automated component manufacture, for example.

            • Epson SCARA G6

            • The new efficiency level

              Payload: 3/6 kg
              Reach: 450 /550/ 650 mm

              The new design of the G6 series offers maximum work envelope at very compact dimensions. The robots can carry out tasks with an arm length of e.g. 550 mm when usually 600 mm would be required. The G6 series is the ideal solution for applications in which high speed at maximum precision is required — such as the production of mechanical and electrical parts, pick-and-place applications, equipping with small parts, dosing and feeding.

            • Epson SCARA G10

            • Fast and strong

              Payload: 5/10 kg
              Reach: 650 / 850 mm

              Ultrafast speed and higher payload? A combination that Epson SCARA robots of the G10 series can perfectly handle due to the high arm rigidity. G10 are fast in every sense of the word — for assembly and configuration as well as for handling with multi-grippers. They use all their advantages particularly in applications such as the assembly of heavy parts, packaging and palletising as well as loading and unloading. Since there are no tubes, the design is very compact.

            • Epson SCARA G20

            • Long arm with high strength

              Payload: 10/20 kg
              Reach: 850 /1000 mm

              Manipulators of the G20 series are particularly suitable for high payloads such as heavy parts or packaging units (up to 20 kg). Since the arm of the G20 is up to 1,000 mm long, the work envelope is large. Due to the high moment of inertia of the U joint, heavy loads can be handled fast and reliably without any vibration of the robot arm as is the case for many models with a similar arm length.

          • Controllers

              • Epson RC180

              • Works According to Instruction

                The Epson RC180 can be used equally for SCARA robots and 6-axis robots. Moreover, the option units designed as a modular system provide further interfaces and technology modules.

                With a base area only slightly larger than an A4-sheet, the RC180 is incredibly small and yet extremely powerful. The small smart one of extremely good value was mainly designed for slave network operation. It is particularly flexible since the compact slave controller can be used for SCARA as well as for 6-axis robots.

              • Epson RC620

              • PC-based master controller

                The compact RC620 is designed as a central controller for several robots in one cell; it can control up to 20 axes. Of course you can also use the RC620 as slave — the controller is as flexible as required.

                The compact RC620 is designed as a central controller for several robots in one cell; it can control up to 20 axes. Of course you can also use the RC620 as slave — the controller is as fl exible as required.

                Due to its open system design — a Windows-based industrial PC with standard interfaces such as USB, Ethernet, RS-232C as well as standard PCI and special slots — it can be smoothly integrated into existing production processes and can easily be combined with individual expansion cards and software.

              • Epson RC700-A

              • One for all

                The new Epson RC700-A controller is a universal genius and can demonstrate its ability as a stand-alone or integrated system. Compact. Powerful. And flexible as you need to meet your demands.

                Compact. Powerful. And as flexible as you need to meet your demands. The new Epson RC700-A controller is a universal genius and can demonstrate its ability as a stand-alone or integrated system. If it is extended to create a multi-manipulator controller, the Epson RC700-A can control several robots and various peripherals in a complex system.

                The RC700-A controller can be expanded with various image processing systems to meet your requirements. It is also designed for the new generation of robots featuring Epson QMEMS® sensor technology.
