CARSON, Calif. — At Pack Expo in Chicago next week, Epson Robots plans to launch the SynthisTM T6 all-in-one SCARA robot as well as Force Guide, a high-performance, integrated, force-guidance solution. The company will also showcase various leading robots for factory automation and lead a discussion for users new to factory automation.
The Synthis T3 and new T6 all-in-one SCARA robots offer the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions, according to Epson Robots. They come with a built-in controller, a new feature that is designed to reduce space requirements and simplify setup.
The robots also include the powerful Epson RC+ ® development environment that is included with all Epson Robots.
The Synthis T3 and T6 are ideal for simple applications such as pick and place, assembly, parts handling, and dispensing, said Epson Robots.
The company added that they can be used in industries ranging from automotive and medical development to lab automation, consumer electronics,
Both robots will be shown with Vision Guide demonstrating inspection as well as pick and place applications using vision guidance.
The Flexion™ N2 6-Axis space-saving robot features the world’s first compact folding arm design that meets the increasingly high demands for efficient movement and precise placement required in advanced manufacturing.
Epson Robots said the Flexion N2 is ideal for use in production and quality assurance in the automotive, electronics, medical and laboratory equipment industries. These markets require smaller robots and workcells, it said.
