State-of-the-art robot technology from Epson

Automation is the key for maximum productivity and precision in an increasing number of industries and applications. In particular, solutions that work effectively for smaller numbers of robots are becoming very important.

You can trust a partner that knows robots inside and out, and can help you make your production process substantially more efficient. Epson is a pioneer in robotics and a full-service provider from manufacturing to sales and support. Since the launch of our first robot in 1980, we've been among the leading providers in the field of automation.

Complete automation solutions

We view ourselves as an automation provider with a flexibly upgradable product range that can integrate various optional components. We not only supply the largest range of SCARA robots for the most varied applications, but also six-axis robots, controllers, and software. All our products integrate seamlessly and are easy to operate.

Reliable and durable

Our robot systems are defined by their exceptional precision, speed, reliability and durability. A host of household names are very satisfied with the performance of their Epson robots.

Products

Robots

Modern automation solutions must meet a few simple requirements - they need to be as fast as possible, as small as possible, as inexpensive as possible. Epson can offer you a wide range of high-speed and high-precision industrial robots.

SCARA robots

Next-generation SCARA robots - compact, high-speed, high-precision with options to suit your exact requirements.

Epson robots give you more choice than ever before, so you need look no further for your next system. With a range that offers 300 different models in sizes from 175 – 1,000mm in reach, and payloads of up to 20kg, plus washdown and cleanroom models, chances are that Epson has the exact model and configuration you need for your application.

Spider robots

The robot revolution from Epson

Epson's Spider robot has a great deal to offer. It is the first and only SCARA robot with a perfectly cylindrical envelope. Thanks to that, the impressively productive Spider can reach all positions within its area of activity (100 percent) and also makes a compelling case with its short cycle times.

Six-axis robots

The precise solution for your application

ProSix six-axis robots make a compelling case through high-speed, precise travel. Standard cycle times of up to 0.37 seconds at repeatabilities of +/–0.02 mm ensure a high throughput and increase economic viability.

SCARA-Light

Simple. Intelligent.

Think industrial robots are only worth buying in large batches? Think the numbers don't add up for smaller companies? Wrong, in both cases.
Epson's SCARA-Light robots are making great steps into areas which were previously only served by very linear systems or other less flexible robots.

SCARA T-Series

SCARA T-Series with controller built in.

Automation solutions are becoming ever more intelligent, efficient and cheaper. There’s no better example of this than the T-Series SCARA robot. It is the introductory model in our comprehensive SCARA product range — ideal for simple pick-and-place applications and in areas where linear systems were previously used.

Smart Motion

We get to the point fast

Epson robots reach their end position much faster and more accurately while producing the smallest possible amount of vibration. Optimal positioning, short cycle times and higher path accuracy mean that with Smart Motion, economy of movement is guaranteed.

Because of overshooting, traditional motor controllers lead to increased deviation. This results in inaccurate positioning, poor interpolation, and longer processing times. With Smart Motion on the other hand, there is minimal overshooting. Even in the case of extreme cycle times, Epson robots are precise, gentle on the products, and quick to get to the point.

QMEMS-Technology

A first for robotics
Vibration control thanks to Epson's QMEMS sensor technology1.

They are the first of their kind:
Our robots use revolutionary QMEMS sensor technology, which drastically reduces the vibrations of the kinematics.

This makes it possible to increase production speeds while keeping a consistently quality level during assembly tasks. Even where start speeds are high or deceleration is heavy, strength lies in smoothness for performance levels that seemed unachievable until now.

What is QMEMS?

QMEMS is a combination of quartz, a crystal with excellent characteristics such as high stability and high precision, and MEMS (a microfabrication technology). We apply precision microprocessing based on quartz material to a semiconductor MEMS material, to create a quartz device that we call QMEMS, which offers high performance in a compact package.

Advantage of QMEMS

Overshoot 0.3 -> 0.1mm
Stability time (±0.05mm) 0.3 -> 0.1sec
15% shorter cycle time in actual
usage range
Degrease vibration and stability time
Improve cycle time in heavy payload range

      Design phase: easy planning and cost reduction

      During the design phase, you can plan your robot cell accurately and quickly, and easily and reliably estimate the cycle time for your application.

      This allows you to prove feasibility before a single part of the installation is manufactured. You can also prepare for later expansions in the simulation to minimise shutdowns within the live installation.

      Integration phase: reducing integration times, avoiding damage

      Prior to robot delivery, an offline program validation will be carried out. Programs can be created in parallel and even complex motion sequences can be visualised and evaluated. This helps to detect collision risks and avoid damage to the equipment.

      Operation and maintenance phase: downtime reduction

      Troubleshooting and program modifications can be comfortably carried out from the desktop Collision detection, reachability checks and robot motion can all be visualised in 3D.

      We speak a simple language

      The line-based SPEL+ script language specially developed by Epson is not just powerful but also easy to learn.
      Its range of commands enables you to program a very wide range of robot motions – from a simple pick and place applications to complex multi-manipulator line control.

      Complete high-level language

      Fast and secure

      SPEL+ is translated into robot code by a compiler. This is carried out faster than by using an interpreter, and the syntax can also be checked before the program is run.

      More flexibility

      The extensive range of comments for various applications means short programming times with far fewer errors. You can also add your own commands using the SPEL+ syntax.

      Clearly structured

      In addition to program structure commands, you can use sub-program techniques, multi-tasking and interrupt commands to write programs which are easy to read, enhance and expand.

      Communicative

      Whether for easy handling of inputs and outputs, communication via the serial TCP/IP port, or exchange data in a field bus system – SPEL+ minimises programming work.

      Intuitive to learn

      SPEL+ has no cryptic codes and uses real values.

      Simple to transfer

      SPEL+ syntax can be transferred to a variety of .Net products. It also has an interface to LabVIEW.

      Epson Vision Guide

      Our powerful integrated image-processing systems detect and position parts reliably in spite of production deviations, part-exchanging or varying lighting conditions.

        Force sensors

        Thanks to our proprietary piezoelectric quartz sensing technology, Epson's force sensors are durable and sensitive, allowing them to accurately and consistently sense minimal amounts of force in six directions. This lets users automate complex manufacturing tasks and improve productivity. Sensors are supplied with robot operation commands, to make implementation quick and easy.

        The gentle touch

        Epson’s innovative force sensors answer the need for automation of delicate or pressure-sensitive tasks, and are a significant step forward in improving the way products are manufactured by robots. The S250 series enables robots to sense force as low as 0.1N, allowing the robots to automate complex tasks such as precisely assembling delicate components. The sensors can also be used on tasks that formerly relied on human sensory perception such as polishing and deburring, freeing employees from repetitive manual work.

        Options

        Our hardware and software components provide the enhanced functionality and configuration flexibility you need for full-process automation.

        The power to customise

        Our standard automation products cover the majority of possible uses, but if you have unique requirements, that's no problem. We have a range of additional hardware and software options for Epson manipulators and control systems.

        These components will allow you to implement a bespoke production design, efficiently and flexibly.

        Manipulator options

        Enhanced functionality and configuration flexibility

        Controller options

        A wide variety of controller options can be employed to further expand the range of process tasks you can automate.

        Software options

        Epson's long experience in factory automation enables us to offer a wide array of easy-to-use software programs to help you achieve maximum productivity with minimum programming overhead.

        Solutions

        Component placement and assembly

        Manual actions during component placement and assembly can be both inefficient and error-prone. It's also a fact that the movements of the human arm are restricted by nature. Thanks to the optimal relationship between axis 1 and axis 2, Epson robots enjoy maximum mobility and can assemble the smallest components accurately every time. With their excellent dynamics, high insertion forces and rigidity values, and an excellent deadload/payload ratio, our robots are ideally suited for component placement and assembly tasks. At the same time, they are sturdy, durable and work very reliably in all conditions.

        Case studies

          Testing, measuring, controlling

          Quality controls, trial runs before serial production, data measurements are all areas where precise recording is vital. With Epson robots and a powerful integrated image processing system, these tasks can also be mastered with high clock rates. The PC-based RC620 master controller can be expanded with additional measurement and testing hardware and is easily integrated into image recognition systems or force-moment sensors supplied by other manufacturers. If a product deviates from the tolerance values set via the predefined parameters, it is rejected as faulty.

          Case studies

            Packaging and palletising

            Modern packaging requires high levels of flexibility in packaging lines. The main goal is to ensure shorter product exchange times while maintaining high standards of process safety. Epson robots have everything under control. They pack and palletise even highly fragile components. With conveyor tracking, components can also be grabbed and deposited on running conveyor belts by the robot. In the process, objects are detected by a camera or a sensor.

            Case studies

              Machine loading and unloading

              Loading and unloading of conveyor belts, pallet systems, plastic injection moulding machines or metal casting machines are only a few examples of tasks in this area, which the Epson robots can perform accurately and reliably. Work cells can be transformed into production islands, for example the fully automated process of injection moulding machines, with removal, cooling and deburring in one single operating sequence.
