?The New G-Series SCARA robots are the latest component of our Power of Choice company philosophy which gives customers a choice of robots, controls and other automation solutions to best fit their applications? stated Michael Ferrara, Director of EPSON Robots. ?With over 168 models to choose from, the G-Series lineup gives customers a wide variety of models ranging from 450mm to 1000mm in reach. Equally important are the performance improvements achieved with the new G-Series arms. With speed and payload improvements of over 20-100% vs. our previous generation SCARA models, the EPSON G-Series represents significant performance improvements that will result in more parts processed and more profits for our customers.?

EPSON?s original smart motion control technology is combined with a new high rigidity arm design to achieve ultra-high speed, ultra-high precision, and low vibration and put EPSON G-Series Robots in the top class of the industry. The G-Series SCARA robots have greatly improved their speed over current models and are able to carry out high speed operation, short and long moves and transport light or heavy payloads with the ultimate performance results. All G-Series robot arms are available in standard, Class 10 Clean, or IP54/65 configurations. They are available in tabletop, wall or ceiling mount configurations as well.

By utilizing the easy to learn and use EPSON Micro PowerDrive Controller, even first-time users can easily build systems that offer outstanding performance at a low cost. With integrated options such as Vision Guidance, DeviceNet, Profibus, Ethernet IP, Active X and .Net Controls, development time is significantly reduced by allowing developers to focus more on the application at hand.

EPSON Robots is the global leader in PC controlled precision factory automation, with an installed base of over 18,000 robots and a product line of hundreds of models of easy to use SCARA, Cartesian and 6 axis robots based on a common PC platform. Building on a 21 year heritage, EPSON Robots today delivers robots for precision assembly and material handling applications in the aerospace, appliance, automotive, biotechnology, consumer product, electronics, food processing, medical device, pharmaceutical, plastics, semiconductor, and telecommunication industries.
