Epson Intros New SCARA Robots
Next generation SCARA robot.
Carson, CA — Epson Robots has introduced its G-Series, the next generation, high performance SCARA robots for its Micro Power Drive Controllers. According to the company, the new SCARAs provide the ultimate high speed, high precision performance results even with high payloads. Combined with the powerful Epson Micro PowerDrive Controller, the new G-Series Robots reportedly provide best-in-class performance.

The new robots are the latest component of the Power of Choice company philosophy which gives customers a choice of robots, controls and other automation solutions to best fit the application. With over 168 models to choose from, the G-Series lineup gives customers a wide variety of models ranging from 450mm to 1000mm in reach. Equally important are the performance improvements achieved with the new G-Series arms. With speed and payload improvements of over 20-100 percent vs. the previous generation SCARA models, the G-Series represents significant performance improvements.

The company's original smart motion control technology is combined with a new high rigidity arm design to achieve ultra-high speed, ultra-high precision, and low vibration. The robots have greatly improved their speed over current models and are able to carry out high speed operation, short and long moves and transport light or heavy payloads. All G-Series robot arms are available in standard, Class 10 Clean, or IP54/65 configurations. They are available in tabletop, wall or ceiling mount configurations as well.

By utilizing the easy to learn and use Epson Micro PowerDrive Controller, even first-time users can easily build systems that offer outstanding performance at a low cost. With integrated options such as Vision Guidance, DeviceNet, Profibus, Ethernet IP, Active X and .Net Controls, development time is significantly reduced by allowing developers to focus more on the application at hand.
