Epson Robots (www.robots.epson.com) has introduced the latest addition to its RS-Series SCARA portfolio — a zero footprint, long reach robot that offers more than the typical SCARA — the EPSON RS4 Robots.
“Unique to the EPSON RS4 arm is our new workspace design which maximizes work envelope usage” said Michael Ferrara, EPSON Robots’ Director. “The unique arm structure of EPSON RS-Series robots utilizes the entire workspace underneath the arm, defeating the “old” SCARA design limitations so there is no dead space in the center of the work envelope.”
“No other robot vendor offers a 550mm SCARA arm capable of working on pallets as large as 778mm x 778mm. A pallet size this large would normally require a 1,200mm SCARA arm in a 2.4m enclosure which is double the size. EPSON RS4 robots allow our customers to reduce their work space requirements in half while providing industry leading work envelope usage.”
Instead of moving around itself, the EPSON RS4 has the capability to maneuver under itself for the shortest possible movements delivering optimum cycle rates. Thus, more parts are processed for a shorter period of time at a fraction of floor space. A zero footprint robot, it can be easily integrated into compact assembly cells. Providing over 450 degrees of axis rotation for omni directional access, the EPSON RS4’s flexible design eliminates dead space in the work envelope.
Ideal for lab automation and other heavy applications process, EPSON RS4 provides EPSON customers 550 mm and 350 mm RS-Series SCARA Robots.
