Epson: 6-axis robots
Epson Robots introduces the new Epson C4 and C4L compact 6-Axis robots.
With faster speeds and more payload capability while keeping the SlimLine design, Epson C4 and C4L robots provide superior performance for even the most demanding and complex applications.
“Our Epson C3 robots have been well received in the industry and are being applied to a wide variety of applications in the Medical, Automotive, Electronics, Consumer Products and other industries” stated Michael Ferrara, Director of Epson Robots. “The new C4 arms extend the capabilities of the C3 by adding more speed and payload while maintaining the unique SlimLine design originally provided with the C3 arms. Also, an extended reach C4 called the C4L has been added to our product lineup providing up to 965mm of reach. As with the C3, the SlimLine design of the C4/C4L robots provides exceptionally advanced flexibility.” The slim body and compact wrist design allows for greater motion range and less mechanical restrictions. The robots can easily reach into confined and restricted work spaces from many angles with smooth motion not achievable with similar sized competitive models.
With the ability to maximize part throughput for even the most demanding cycle time requirements, C4 robots are some of the fastest compact 6-axis arms available in the industry. The tight integration of powerful motors and amplifiers along with ultra high resolution feedback and superior controls provide unmatched motion performance including higher acceleration and deceleration rates as well as advanced linear interpolated motion.
Designed for maximum performance, C4 robots use high quality components to achieve high rigidity in a light weight arm. Through Epson’s unique QMEMSTM vibration sensing technology, C4/C4L arms are able to automatically adjust to minimize vibration and maximize speed and accel/decel rates. This translates to faster cycle times even with heavier payloads as compared to other compact 6-axis models.
Epson C4/C4L robots come with our new RC700 controller and provide the ultimate experience in ease of use, power and reliability. In addition, the RC700 controller also provides our industry leading Epson RC+ Controls software and lots of fully integrated options such as: Vision Guidance, .Net support, Conveyor Tracking, GUI Builder, EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, Profibus and much more.
Epson C4/C4L robots are ideal for small parts assembly, dispensing, lab automation, medical device assembly, machine tending, material handling, packaging, electronics and many other applications.
