Tomorrow’s Manufacturing Technologies Today

Overview

EPSON robotics is a division of the $10B Seiko EPSON Corporation. The robotics division of EPSON has been well known in the robotics industry for years specializing in robotics products where high speed and accuracy are required. Recently, EPSON has been adding products with greater reach, payload, and economy as well as more integrated options for solutions such as vision guidance, force guidance, flex feeding, and co-bot safety scanners. EPSON robot products are very easy to use and based on the highly evolved software programming. They offer a wide product range in robot sizes, duty cycles, and price ranges as well as integrated options.

What Do Epson Robots Do?

EPSON robots are used in a wide variety of applications and settings to help in production and QC while lowering overall production costs. EPSON robotics has hundreds of different lines of robots that come in all shapes and sizes for any sized production facility. Due to this massive amount of configurable and programmable robot lines, EPSON is considered the #1 SCARA robot manufacturer in the world.

EPSON Automation helps companies focus on the bottom line with steady production and higher QC metrics than a normal labor force. EPSON Automation has over 30 years of experience in the manufacture of automation robots and through this experience, EPSON is continually innovating for future production needs. EPSON works with companies to solve tough production issues and achieves their aims through their popular 6-Axis and SCARA all-in-one lines.

Uses and Applications for Epson Robots

EPSON robotics have been in use throughout many trades and production projects. The packaging industry utilizes the reach and payload capacities of EPSON robot arms to pack products into containers and QC the product for any defects. The solar panel industry is rife with delicate materials that go into their finished product. EPSON robots have been handling solar panel materials with kid gloves for many years within the production arm of the industry. The food industry also uses EPSON for fast disinfecting of product and visual QC as the product speeds along the line at high speeds.

The Phlebotomy industry utilizes EPSON robots to handle pipettes and blood analysis among many other uses within the trade. Industrial uses for EPSON robots span the gamut from battery manufacture to producing smoke detectors on a line. A host of consumer goods are also produced with the help of EPSON robots such as light bulbs, computer hard drives, and other goods.

Speaking of computers, the very chips and semiconductors that go into those computers are all produced with the help of EPSON robots. EPSON is also well-known within the medical industry for its automation solutions in the production of contact lenses, pacemakers, and other items. Perhaps, the most well-known and oldest use of EPSON robots has taken place within the Automotive industry. Nearly every major car manufacturer uses some form of robotics to help in the production of their cars and trucks.

EPSON Robotics Brought To You By Schneider & Co.

Schneider & Co. and EPSON have a long partnership in delivering quality automation solutions for their customers. Schneider & Co. has solutions for any kind of production work or space needed. When it comes to maximizing production quantities, minimizing production costs, and producing higher-quality products, the quiet and helpful arm of EPSON robots is a hard act to follow.

Integrated Products


Inteli-Flex

Epson Inteli-Flex

Intelli-Flex Feeder-Powered by Epson Robots, IntelliFlex software and Vision Guide, the IntelliFlex Parts Feeding System delivers a powerful solution to accommodate a wide variety of parts. Simplify setup, improve flexibility and receive comprehensive service and support directly from Epson.

Vision

Epson Vision

For more than 10 years, Epson Vision Systems have been used to allow Epson Robots to see. Our vision guide software leads the industry in ease of use with a point-and-click development environment filled with high-performance vision tools.

Force Guidance

Epson’s high-performance Force Guide takes robot automation to the next level with superior precision and outstanding rigidity. Powered by proprietary Epson Quartz Technology, it enables Epson robots to detect six axes of force with precision down to 0.1 N. Driven by real-time servo system integration, Force Guide delivers fast, tactile feedback to guide robots for high-precision parts placement. Easy to configure and set up, Force Guide features a point-and-click interface with pre-configured solutions and built-in objects, reducing the development time for precision repeatability applications.

Schneider Robot Accessories- EPSON VT6L & IGUS Dresspacks

The EPSON VT6L Robot requires an external dress pack for cable management for this reason we developed three kits which include our designed robot mounting plates which will receive either 30 or 40 Series of Brackets and includes appropriate length of IGUS Tri-Flex tube cable management and detailed instructions including link counts between brackets to allow the robot full range of motion without impingement.

Schneider Robot Accessories - SCARADRIVER

Schneider Robot Accessories - SCARADRIVER

SCARADRIVER II is a tooling adaptation to an EPSON SCARA robot which was designed and built for Schneider Company. SCARADRIVER II allows the user to drive screws to high torque values (up to 40NM) without damaging the robot joints from the torque reaction. There are a few different models available based on mounting and application details. The first SCARADRIVER I systems were installed in 2008 and are still running well with many shift years of production experience. In 2018 the product was redesigned tighter and lighter with more configuration options. in 2019 we developed the T3 SCARADRIVER which is an economical and smaller screw robotic system for applications under 2NM.
