Rosemont, IL – October 22, 2019 –Today at the Assembly show, Epson Robots, the #1 SCARA robot manufacturer in the world, announced it is expanding its IntelliFlex™ product line with the IntelliFlex 530 Feeding System. Following the IntelliFlex 240 (announced in April), which can accommodate parts from 5 to 40 mm in size, the IntelliFlex 530 offers a new feeder size that can support parts from 30 -150 mm in size.  Available now, it will be showcased at the Assembly Show, Donald E Stephens Convention Center, booth #431 in Rosemont, IL.

 

Powered by Epson Robots’ IntelliFlex Software and Vision Guide, the IntelliFlex Feeding Systems deliver simplistic and affordable feeding solutions to accommodate a wide variety of parts for applications in medical, consumer, automotive, electronics and more.

The new IntelliFlex 530 is ideal for handling plastic, rubber and metal parts and is particularly well suited for applications such as mechanical and electronic assembly, kitting, palletizing and tray loading and material handling.

 

“We are expanding our IntelliFlex Feeding Systems product line to meet a growing need for high mix low volume parts singulation,” said Gregg Brunnick, director of product management for Epson Robots. “The integration of Epson robots, feeder and vision system into a single development environment dramatically reduces development time, providing manufacturers operational efficiency with quick part changeovers. Adding a solution that can accommodate a wider range of part sizes, gives our customers more options to meet their particular application needs.” ​
