"Epson is overcoming automation barriers by eliminating the perceived difficulty of programming a robot,” said Rick Brookshire, director of product management and product development, Epson Robots. “Our existing Epson RC+ software is widely known for its ease of use and power. The new Epson RC+ Express delivers the next level of simplicity by allowing new robotics users to build simple applications quicker and easier than ever before—without needing to learn any programming language.”
Developed for Epson T-Series All-in-One and LS-B Series SCARA robots, Epson RC+ Express features a simple, visual-based teaching environment that integrates an easy-to-learn, block-style format with the power and flexibility of a scripted-text programming language. Ready-to-use templates are included, allowing users to quickly create common pick-and-place, palletizing and depalletizing applications.
Epson RC+ Express includes a simple-to-navigate visual user interface, making it easy to learn and manage key functions like jogging, gripper control and motion. The software is equipped with time-saving features such as Epson proprietary Focus Assist technology with auto generated fields for quick and easy setup, and a built-in 3D simulator to help visualize and fine-tune applications.
