EpsonT6 B 400x275

January 19, 2022

Epson Robots has announced new updates to its T-Series line of all-in-one SCARA Robots with the introduction of the T3-B and T6-B models. The robots aim to offer value to ease automation for new entrants and advanced users of robotics.

The new versions support complex and simple automation applications, which include packaging, pick-and-place, dispensing, and inspection. The robots include the same software and features of Epson’s high-end robots, while keeping the total cost of ownership in industries such as automotive, medical development, lab automation, consumer electronics, electronic components, and industrial, said Epson.

“Ease of use in robotics is more important than ever and 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 at 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 no-code Epson RC+ Express software, users can add the robots to automation systems in no time.”

The robots include a space-saving design that includes a built-in controller housed in the robot’s base with power for end-of-arm tooling, and are compatible with integrated options such as vision guidance, IntelliFlex parts feeding, tech pendants, and field bus master and slave interface boards.

Additional features of the robots include:

  • Standard 110 V and 220 V power
  • Built-in power for end-of-arm tooling
  • No battery required for encoder, which minimizes downtime and reduces the overall cost of ownership
  • Integrated options such as teach pendant, field bus master and slave interface boards, including Ethernet/IP and add-on instructions for integration with Allen Bradley PLCs.

The T3-B ($7,495) and T6-B ($9,595) robots will be available in mid-March, through Epson’s channel of distribution partners. More details on the systems are available at this website.
