EPSON Robots Debuts New High Speed Robots
Carson, CA. --- September 9, 2002 --- The Factory Automation Robotics Division of Epson America, Inc. will unveil its new E2 Robots at the upcoming Assembly Technology Exposition (Booth # 28065). The E2 Robots incorporate the latest technology in high speed, high precision SCARA robots.
"0.38 second cycle times! 0.008 micron repeatability! 0.12 Kgm² moments of inertia! Table top, side wall, shelf top, shelf bottom and ceiling mounts! Class 10 Cleanroom and ESD compliant! 32 different models available! UL Listed! It's pretty obvious that once again Epson is demonstrating its leadership in SCARA robots," said John Clark, the National Sales Manager of Epson America's Factory Automation Robotics Division. "A couple of years ago we asked our customers, as well as our competitors' customers, to describe their ideal SCARA robot. They told us that they wanted it to be faster, more repeatable, have stronger moments of inertia and the ability to mount almost anywhere. They also wanted easy to use programming software running on a compact, open architecture, PC based controller." John concluded, "The E2 Robot is exactly what they described."
With more than 17,000 installed units worldwide and offices in Asia, Europe and North America, Epson Factory Automation Robotics is a leading supplier of robots, controllers and vision guidance products.
