Official European launch of the autonomous, dual-arm robot, the WorkSense W-01

Epson will be unveiling the “seeing, sensing, thinking, working” autonomous dual-arm robot – the WorkSense W-01 - at this year’s automatica (stand B5-319, Messe München). This intelligent, dual-arm robot comes equipped with a large number of internal sensors such as cameras and force sensors and is designed for largely autonomous production in a number of new and different applications. The WorkSense W-01 is a fast learner that sees everything!

At automatica Epson will be showcasing its full range of robotics from the next generation of SCARA robots to six-axis precision machines, all of which have been designed to meet to the changing requirements of European businesses including the increasing demand for affordable automation by SMEs.

Epson has also invited a number of its partners to demonstrate how they’ve integrated Epson solutions into businesses, spanning sectors and geographies across Europe. This year, they’ll be joined by long-standing partners: Compar from Switzerland, MiniTec from Austria and PacTech from Germany.

Volker Spanier, Head of Robotic Solutions at Epson in the EMEAR region, explains: "As a leading technology company with over thirty years’ market experience of robots in Europe, Epson continues to expand its range of efficient, compact and precision robots that combine technological excellence with a deep understanding of customers’ needs. Our WorkSense W-01 dual-arm robot is a significant step into the future – a future of enhanced robotic intelligence and imaginative design, that fits seamlessly into the workplace of tomorrow."

Also on the stand:

T-Series SCARA

Epson is the market leader in entry-level affordable SCARA robots and has by far the largest range of products available in the market. Its portfolio will be further expanded by the introduction of the T6-SCARA, with a reach of 600mm and a payload of up to 6kg.

VT-Series. 

This new range of articulated robots has been optimised using the ‘just enough’ principle.  The VT-Series offers entry-level, no frills, affordable solutions and can be easily integrated into existing systems without the need for complicated programming thanks to the built-in controller. The VT06 is a six-axis robot with a range of 600mm and a payload of up to 6kg.

N-Series

Compact like no other six-axis robot with maximum efficiency over the smallest footprint, the N-Series is extremely manoeuvrable due to the inwardly orientated second axis. The N6 has a reach of 1000mm and handles a payload of up to 6kg.
