Epson: Compact 6-axis robots
The EPSON C4 compact 6-Axis robots continues the tradition of setting new standards for small sized 6-axis robot performance.
As the leader in compact 6-Axis robots, our new EPSON C4 design includes a unique compact wrist pitch as well as a slim body elbow design. With outstanding flexibility, EPSON C4 robots were made for big jobs in tiny spaces. Our goal was to build a robust robot in a compact shell capable of meeting EPSON's high performance standards. The new EPSON C4 improves on the C3 by now allowing payloads up to 4Kg while maintaining fast speeds and cycle times like the C3.
The EPSON C4 cycle times are 0.37 seconds which is faster than many competitors SCARA models. All 6 joints on the C4 are on average 32.4% faster than equivalent competitor models in its' class. The C4's footprint to motion range ratio is in a class by itself and the outstanding flexibility allows EPSON robots to do jobs that other small 6 axis arms simply cannot do (or that take much more cycle time to complete).
Our slimline body and compact wrist design enable greater motion range and less mechanical restrictions than comparably sized models. In addition larger motors and superior servo controls allow for fast yet precise motion control which means smoother motion for your next application. In addition EPSON acceleration/deceleration rates due to our high performance Epson proprietary servo system provide fast motion on a smooth path.
