Epson’s long reach G20 SCARA robot handles a 4 player Craps table. Each player uses a touch screen to place bets. The robot control takes that information and places the bets on the selected locations. Next, the robot rolls the dice. After reading results of the roll, the robot clears the table of all the losers, deducting the bets from each loser’s account and credits each winner’s account.

The new compact 6-axis robot from Epson. The C3 robot provides best in class repeatability and speed. It’s perfect for applications that require lots of motion flexibility and use very little space. Typical applications are pick & place, machine tending, small part assembly, dispensing plus many others.
Three EPSON RS3 robots are used in an the test & assembly of an electronic device. The video shows the 3 cells interlinked together handling a generic part as a proof of concept. The advantage of this system is that conveyors are removed from the system and the parts are moved by the robot or small fixed stop transfer stations. The result is reduced cost, improved floor space efficiency and faster throughput.
EPSON Pro Six robot uses Vision Guide to find a loose printed circuit board on a conveyor. After finding the PCB the robot picks up the PCB and moves it over to a Keyence inspection camera. The Keyence system inspects for overspray of a conformal coating.
EPSON G20-A01SR ceiling mount scara robot grabs cases of liquids and re-orients them in the correct direction for a downstream palletizing operation.
EPSON Robots display at MOTEK ’09. The display shows G1, G3, G6 & G20 scara robots working with a RS3 spider robot and a C3 6-axis robot.
EPSON G6-653 scara robot is used to load, cut, perforate and score proof sheets used by the graphical printing industry. These proof sheets are run in small batches so that the graphics company can show their customer what a finished product will look like. The robot is equipped with Epson Vision Guide to locate & pick up the sheet. The robot motion was created by converting CAD data into robot points.
EPSON C3 ceiling mount, 6-axis robot simulating the transfer of laboratory well plates between 3 different stations.
Two EPSON G3 scara robots use vision to locate parts on a continuously moving conveyor. When the parts move into their work envelopes, each robot picks parts off the conveyor. Both robots use EPSON’s Vision Guide Conveyor Tracking option available on the RC620 PC-based controller.
EPSON E2C351S scara robot loads parts into a machining fixture. The non-fixtured parts are presented on a moving conveyor requiring use of EPSON’s Vision Guide Conveyor Tracking option to find the parts, pick them up and place them into a machining fixture.
Two EPSON scara robots work in a loss-prevention cell. The robots apply UV-cured adhesive to the outside edges of a plastic package. Upon leaving the robot workcell the plastic container enters a PartnerPak UV-Light tunnel that cures the adhesive and seals shut the package. A sealed package provides outstanding loss-prevention protection for the high-value contents.
The EPSON G1 Mini-scara robot is the newest member of the EPSON G Series robots. With a reach of 176 or 225 mm and repeatabilities down to 5 microns, the G1 is ideal for applications that require high precision and/or a very small footprint. Both G1 models have an outstanding range of horizontal motion.
