Epson announces launch of low- TCO SCARA Robots in India

Epson, a leader in digital imaging and printing solutions today announced the expansion of its line-up of industrial SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm) robots. The new model – T3 robot will offer an amazingly low total cost of ownership (TCO) for those looking at basic automation applications.

The T3 Robot is designed primarily for simple material handling applications, such as test machine loading/unloading in industries spanning across manufacturing, packaging, industrial automation, machinery and machine tools.It provides companies with the opportunity to free operators from repetitive and non-creative tasks such as transporting components, which to date have not been performed by robots due to financial concerns. Manufacturers who automate tasks by combining multiple low-cost single-axis robots will find that they can replace these with T3 robots. Doing so will enable them to reduce or eliminate troublesome single-axis robot maintenance work and save money over the long run. T3 robots are compact in size, easy to set up/install, easy to maintain and offer outstanding efficiency. Deploying T3 robots in automotive, electrical & electronics, pharma & medical, food & beverages segments will enable factory owners to automate manual workmore efficiently and productively.

Key features

  • A built-in controller saves space and simplifies robot setup and redeployment:Epson was able to integrate all the controller components into the robot arm meaning that customers do not need a controller box.
  • A battery less motor unit reduces maintenance and factory downtime: Factoryowners do not need to exchange batteriesbecause the T3 is able to record the back-up status of its motors by using a simple mechanical system with the latest motor technologies.
  • An end-effector I/O port and a short, stable cable conduit simplify cabling work: Epson has provided an I/O communications port closer to the end-effector. This port makes it easier to connect cables to the end-effector and supply power to it. There is no longer any need to route a long cable to the controller. The cable conduit, which contains pneumatic hoses as well as electrical cables, is shorter than in previous models. The shorter design gives it stability while the robot is moving, making it easier to route cables outside the conduit.
  • Runs on a low supply voltage (AC100V), using 30% less power than comparable Epson robot systems: The T3 has 30% better energy performance (power consumption: 0.66 kVA) than conventional SCARA robots, therefore helpingfactory owners reduce long-term running costs. The T3 also runs on a single-phase alternating current at input voltages ranging from 100V to 240V, meaning that it can also be used in facilities where a large power supply is not available.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of our new T3 robot in India,” said Mr. Venkatesh R. – Director Sales of the Robotics Division at EPSON India. “The size of the Indian robotics market is large and we see great potential to innovate as the market is expected to grow substantially in the years to come. Epson robots with integrated options are bringing high-productivity automated manufacturing to an ever-expanding range of industries world-wide. Backed by a worldwide reputation for reliability and customer support, Epson Robots are truly best-in-class. ” he added.
