Expanding and diversifying Epson’s 6-Axis robot portfolio, the Flexion N-Series provides a compact solution for applications requiring smaller robots and workcells.The Flexion N-Series features a unique tight space motion capability that keeps arm extremities out of the way, maximizing motion efficiency for faster cycle times. In addition, the folding arm reduces required workspace up to 40 percent when compared to standard 6-Axis robots. Applications that were previously unattainable due to space restrictions are now possible.

While beneficial in a large range of industries, key applications for the Flexion N-Series include micro-sized electronic, automotive, medical, and consumer goods parts assembly, managing of well plates in laboratories, and pill handling in pharmaceutical. The Flexion N-Series is available in both ceiling and tabletop configurations. Compatible and packaged with the RC700A controller, the Flexion N-Series also utilizes Epson’s user-friendly RC+ Robot Development Software and can be used with Epson’s expansive range of integrated options, including Vision Guidance, Force Sensing, Fieldbus, and GUI Builder.
