The uptick in automation continues as companies seek to update manufacturing processes to meet production demands while improving value, managing costs and ensuring employee safety.
As new entrants and seasoned experts search for the right automation solutions, Epson Robots, has announced new updates to its T-Series line with the T3-B and T6-B all-in-one SCARA robots.
The new T3-B and T6-B all-in-one SCARA robots offer high-quality and high-performance at an exceptional value. They aim to simplify both complex and simple automation applications such as packaging, pick and place, dispensing, and inspection. These all-in-one industrial robots include the same intuitive software, powerful features and reliability found in Epson’s high-end robots, while keeping total cost of ownership low in industries spanning automotive, medical development, lab automation, consumer electronics, electronic components, and industrial.
“Ease of use in robotics is more important than ever. The new T-B Series SCARA models bring exceptional value without compromise to both new entrants and advanced manufacturers,” said Scott Marsic, group product manager, Epson Robots.
“Epson strives to simplify automation for all users and the new T3-B and T6-B are designed to provide uncomplicated solutions with productive outcomes. Paired with the no-code Epson RC+® Express software, users can add the robots to automation systems in no time.”
Epson’s new SCARA robots tout an all-in-one, space-saving design that includes a built-in controller housed in the robot’s base with power for end-of-arm tooling.
T3-B and T6-B are compatible with Epson’s suite of integrated options including vision guidance, IntelliFlex™ parts feeding, teach pendants, and field bus master and slave interface boards. Additional updates include an improved form factor design and updated motion control for smoother, faster cycle times.
Designed for ultimate ease of use, they come equipped with the feature-packed Epson RC+ and no-code Epson RC+ Express industrial automation development software. Ideal for novice and advanced users, Epson RC+ is an easy-to-learn programming language that offers a powerful set of tools to redefine automation efficiency. An intuitive, visual-based teaching environment, Epson RC+ Express is designed for users with little-to-no programming experience to easily and efficiently develop simple, powerful robotic programs.
These new robots are easy to install, thus promote fast integration. They can be installed in minutes, unlike complex linear-slide systems, and require less time and money for system integration.
They tout value without compromise as they include the same intuitive software, powerful features and reliability found in Epson’s high-end robots while helping to keep the total cost of ownership low.
These robots are equipped standard with 110V and 220V power, thus promotes low wattage and power consumption. They require no special panel or plug.
A built-in power for end-of-arm tooling eliminates the need for an external power source.
No battery is required for encoder, thus minimizes downtime and reduces overall cost of ownership.
Other integrated options are also available, like teach pendant, field bus master and slave interface boards, including EtherNet/IP and add on instructions for easy integration with Allen Bradley PLCs.
