MEDIA ALERT: LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 16, 2019
Who: Epson America, Inc., will be participating in the upcoming Pack Expo show in Las Vegas with two booths to demonstrate its leading technology solutions for the packaging market.
Robots Showcase, booth # LS-5989
Thanks to their SlimLine design, Epson 6-Axis robots can save on valuable factory floor space and fit where other robots cannot – with no compromise to performance, speed and reach. The 6-Axis robots can reach into confined workspaces from many angles with ultra-smooth motion, making them ideal for packaging applications.
The VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot, the latest entry level offering with a 6kg payload and 900mm reach, features groundbreaking technology at an ultra-low cost of $13,900. It is ideal for simple applications such as load/unload, packaging and parts assembly.
The award-winning N-series 6-Axis robots feature the world’s first compact folding arm technology providing the optimum in motion and workspace efficiency. The N-series demos will show expertise in material handling and fulfillment center package processing.
Integrated Parts Feeding Solution
Shown with a high speed Epson RS3 SCARA robot, the IntelliFlex™ Feeding System, powered by Epson Robots’ IntelliFlex Software and Vision Guide, delivers a simplistic and affordable feeding solution and is an innovative alternative to bowl and flexible feeder solutions available in the market today. The IntelliFlex System will be demonstrated in a high-speed kitting flexible feeding application.
The T3 All-in-One SCARA robot will be shown in a vision-guided pick and place/sorting application. At the low price of $7,495, it’s the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions. It features a unique All-in-One design with built-in controller and power for end-of-arm tooling.
Ideal for heavy payload applications, the new LS10-B SCARA robot will show how well it performs automotive quality inspection. As a refresh to the current LS-series, it offers notable new and improved features including faster cycle times, a lower cable duct profile, ideal for hard to reach work cell layouts, built-in camera cable for easy vision system setup, new top-of-arm layout for enhanced usability, and a batteryless encoder to minimize downtime and reduce overall cost of ownership.
