EPSON ceiling mount 6-axis robot applies special tamper proof, serialized factory seal to boxes. A loss prevention tool, the end user wanted to stop counterfeiters from removing the end user’s high quality product with a low, cost poor quality substitute. When the tape is removed the factory seal is destroyed which indicates that the box was opened prior to arrival at its final destination.
EPSON Scara robot unloads electronic key fobs from a tray and loads them onto a dial index table. When the assembly is completed the robot picks up the part and places it on an finished parts tray.
A very impressive demonstration of a single point of control with multiple robots. A single RC520 PC-based controller is operating 13 axes of motion including a 6-axis Pro Six robot, a 4-axis E2S Scara robot mounted to a linear slide and a 2-axis cartesian EZ Module.
Two EPSON scara robots load & unload electronic circuit devices into test fixtures. Tested parts are sorted PASS – FAIL. Parts that FAIL are sorted by failure type.
This machine built by Huf Tool measures, records and arranges the results for six different key types for the manufacturing company Carl Eduard Schulte GmbH. In cooperation with fully integrated Epson vision processing, an Epson six axis robot runs the whole management of the supplied keys within the cell.
EPSON scara robot applies postage & tracking labels to products moving on a conveyor. Because there are thousands of different items being processed a robot was needed to position the labels so they are placed on the correct location.
EPSON Pro Six robot mounted to the stationary platen reaches into a horizontal injection molding and unloads the parts. The next step is taking the parts to a secondary post molding operation that inserts o-rings. The final step is dropping the parts into a box.
Three different types of small, wafer-like workpieces are running together on a conveyor. EPSON Vision Guide detects the type, location, and rotational position of each workpiece. Robot #1 sorts the workpieces as it places them on a second conveyor. Robot #2 packs the workpieces in trays. No other positioning device or loading pallet are necessary.
EPSON scara robot picks up blank knife blades and loads them into a grinding machine. The operation starts with the robot placing side A in a fixture. After this side is ground, the robot transfers the part to a different location where side B is machined. Upon completion of both sides the robot places the finished part in a bin.
EPSON scara robot uses force sensing feedback to place a lid on a plastic bottle. The force sensing is used to make sure that the lid does not exceed a predetermined rotational torque value. This is important because the manufacturer wants ti make sure that the bottle is tightly sealed but still can be easily opened by the consumer.
