Epson debuts GX Series SCARA robots

Epson introduced a new high-end line of SCARA robots at the show. The GX4 and the GX8 make up the company’s new GX Series. The GX4 can handle payloads of up to 4 kg (8.8 lb.), and the GX8 can handle payloads of up to 8 kg (17.6 lb.). That’s an increase of about 33% from the company’s G-Series line of robots.

The company demoed the robots performing high-speed pick-and-place applications for the medical industry.

Tony Chandek, a regional sales manager at Epson Robots, told Robotics 24/7 that the company is offering a number of different versions of the robot, including cleanroom and IP65-protected options.

The GX Series line of robots also have improved and higher-watt capacity motors, allowing them to operate more quickly. In addition, Epson’s patented GyroPlus Technology, a vibration sensor that allows the robot to tune out servo vibrations before they happen.
