CARSON, CA., – June 26, 2018 – Epson Robots, the #1 SCARA robot manufacturer in the world, today announced it was recognized by Robotics Business Review (RBR50) as one of the 50 leading robotics companies in 2018 for the fifth time. A designated panel of judges, including the RBR editorial team and industry experts, evaluated this year’s submissions. They were looking for the most innovative, successful, and influential companies in their respective areas.
Companies were evaluated on novel technology, understanding of customer needs, and on ecosystems of developers and integrators. Other factors for success included investor support, components that are improving in capability and price, and a growing market that has room for competition.
“End users expect systems that can perceive their surrounding, maneuver in dynamic environments, and interact with objects and one another, for greater efficiency and productivity,” said Eugene Demaitre, senior editor at Robotics Business Review. “Epson has a proven track record in all of the above, so it’s no surprise they made the RBR50 list again this year.”
“Robotics Business Review delivers insightful and actionable business intelligence to a global robotics audience,” said Gregg Brunnick, director of product management for Epson Robots.
“We strive to offer the most innovative and highest quality robotics solutions along with excellent customer service, and are delighted to be part of the RBR50 leading robotics company list.”
For seven years, the RBR50 list has been one of the most prestigious collections of industry leaders in robotics, artificial intelligence, and unmanned systems. We’ve researched multiple companies and their applications, reviewed numerous submissions, and identified this year’s top 50 companies worth following. https://www.roboticsbusinessreview.com/download/2018-rbr50-lists-leading-robotics-companies-year/
