Epson Robots, a global leader in Scara robot technology, have introduced the new Epson RS3 Robot, featuring all the benefits of a typical Scara plus more. The unique new design of the Epson RS3 clearly puts it ahead of other robots in its class with superior cycle times and larger work envelope access thus opening up new application possibilities.
“Unique to the Epson RS3 is our new work space design which maximizes work envelope usage” stated Michael Ferrara, Director of Epson Robots. “No other robot vendor offers a 350mm Scara arm featuring the largest working quadrangle greater than that of a typical 750mm Scara arm. Since there is no dead space in the center of the work envelope, the Epson RS3’s largest working quadrangle is 494mm2, which up till now has only been possible with a much larger Scara robot. With the ability to manoeuvre back under itself for the shortest movements possible instead of having to move around itself, the Epson RS3 delivers superior cycle rates. This means more parts processed in less time, while using a fraction of floor space which results in more profits for our customers.”
The Epson RS3 is literally a zero footprint robot, thus saving customers valuable floor space. It is also capable of easy integration into compact assembly cells. Furthermore, the unique work envelope allows for unprecedented design flexibility with over 360 degrees of axis rotation for omni directional access. All these exclusive features make the Epson RS3 robot the most versatile and unique Scara available in the market today.
The Epson RS3 is perfect for lab automation and other process heavy applications where large quantities of parts are presented to process or testing stations.
The high performance Micro PowerDrive RC180 Controller comes standard with the Epson RS3 robot which provides the ultimate experience in ease of use, compact size, and reliability. In addition to all of these great features, the RC180 controller also provides Epson RC+ Controls software and lots of fully integrated options such as: Vision Guidance, .Net support, Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP and much more.
