The RS3 is showing how it allows for multiple pallets to be spread across the entire work envelope, maximizing the use of valuable floor space. It demonstrates high speed transfer using shortest movements possible. We are demonstrating the ability to shuttle in multiple components in pallets to assemble a single part. The base design allows for additional processing stations to be bolted up to the system. Not shown but included would be a screw driving system, a pressure testing system and a labeling system. The robot is using vision guidance to determine the exact location of the sub-components for assembly….
Two EPSON robots show off their capabilities at the 2010 Lab Automation Show in Palm Springs, California. The ISO 3 cleanroom C3 Compact six-axis robot uses Vision Guide to pick up pipettes from a conveyor belt and place them into a rack. The G1 mini-scara is doing a liquid filling simulation.
EPSON PS3L long reach 6-axis robot picks up a copper valve blanks out of a pallet and loads them into a machine tool. The same robot unloads a machined part and places it into the pallet. Using a robot eliminated the risk of operators being injured loading & unloading the machine.The cell is designed to run unmanned on 24 hour shifts.
This video shows a C3 six axis robot connected to a 110VAC power supply. The ability to run off 110VAC power eliminates the need for a step-up transformer making the C3 robot a perfect choice for many labs and schools.
EPSON Robots Vision Guide package is a simple well integrated machine vision product that reduces the need for expensive part fixtures and gives you the flexibility needed for rapid product changeovers.
EPSON RS-Series robots are the most unique and flexible SCARAs available in the market today. The RS4 is a zero footprint robot. It is capable of easy integration into compact assembly cells. The RS-Series’ unique design improves cycle time vs. other “old” SCARA designs – With the ability to maneuver under itself for the shortest movements possible instead of having to move around itself, EPSON RS-Series deliver superior cycle rates. This means more parts processed in less time, while using a fraction of floor space which results in more profits for our customers.
Look no further for your next SCARA robot as EPSON gives you more power of choice than ever before. With 200+ models available in sizes from 175 – 1,000 mm in reach and payloads up to 20kg, chances are that EPSON has the model and configuration you need for your next application.
Like modern robots, machine vision is a technology that has also benefited greatly by the advances in computer hardware and software. Linking robots and vision systems together, gives users the ability to inspect a workpiece and guide the robot based on the machine vision feedback. Rather than re-inventing existing technology, EPSON’s philosophy is to make use of “Best in Class” automation solutions. Our challenge is then to integrate them with our robots in a seamless and easy to use fashion. Vision Guide 6.0 is EPSON’s state-of-the-art solution for robot guidance and inspection.
Unique to the EPSON RS3 is the new workspace design which maximises work envelope usage. The unique arm structure of the EPSON RS4 robot utilizes the entire workspace underneath the arm, defeating the “old” SCARA design limitations so there is no dead space in the center of the work envelope.
EPSON S5-Series robots provide superior performance along with industry leading PC based controls. They are high speed, mid range 6 axis robots with a small footprint and advanced flexibility for even the most demanding application. S5-Series robots are ideal for applications where 6 axis dexterity is required such as small parts assembly, dispensing, lab automation, machine tending, material handling, medical device manufacturing, packaging, food handling and may other applications requiring speed, precision and/or smooth motion.
The benefits and characteristics of the Epson mask robots, its multiple mounting options, easy programming, greater precision, quality and speed, make it the best option for your application. Models with protection IP54, IP65 and clean room, are ideal for applications of difficult environmental conditions.
EPSON C3 compact 6-axis robot loads packets of butter into a shipping carton. The workcell works 24 hours a day; providing local hotels, restaurants, airlines etc with needed single serve portion packs of butter for use by their customers. The robot packaging system is a joint project of Technofoods, a Chilean builder of automation systems, and Quest Group, the local EPSON Robots distributor.
