Epson releases low-TCO industrial robot range


Epson has expanded its line-up of industrial SCARA (selective compliance assembly robot arm) robots with the launch of its new T-series robots that claim to offer a lower total cost of ownership.

Industrial robots are used in the electronics, automotive, food, and medical industries to transport objects, assemble parts and products, package goods, and perform countless other precision and repetitive tasks. Modern factories depend on robots, and the demand will continue to escalate in both developed and emerging countries.

Epson is the global market share leader in SCARA robots – horizontally articulated and often called four-axis: left, right, and some vertical movement. The other style of six-axis can mimic the actions of a human arm and can be used in dual configurations with finger dexterity.

Epson has added technologies including force sensing systems, motion detection, and image shape and orientation recognition – robotic vision.

The new T3 is designed primarily for material handling applications, such as test machine loading/unloading. It can free operators from repetitive and non-creative tasks such as transporting components. In this use case, the cost of robotics can now be lower than the labour costs.

T3 is also able to replace multiple single-axis robots, reducing cost and floor space and increasing efficiency.

Key product features:

  • A built-in controller – no external box - saves space and simplifies robot set-up and redeployment.
  • A battery-less motor unit reduces maintenance and factory downtime.
  • An end-effector I/O port and a short, stable cable conduit simplify cabling work.
  • Runs on a low supply, single-phase, voltage (100-240VAC), using .66KVA – 30% less power than comparable Epson robot systems.
