Compact Solution Robot Technology

Epson Robots has announced the Flexion N-Series 6-axis robots, featuring a compact folding arm designated to change the scope of automation. Expanding and diversifying Epson's 6-axis robot portfolio, the Flexion N-Series provides a compact solution for applications requiring smaller robots and workcells.

The Flexion N2 is the first robot introduced in the series. It offers a 450 mm reach and 2.5 kg maximum payload, expanding the reach capabilities of Epson's product line from the 450 mm mark up to 1,400 mm. "Unlike any other 6-axis robot on the market, the Flexion N-Series features a tight space motion capability that keeps arm extremities out of the way, maximizing motion efficiency for faster cycle times. In addition, the folding arm reduces required workspace up to 40% compared to standard 6-axis robots. Applications that were previously unattainable due to space restrictions are now possible with the Flexion N-Series," said a company spokesperson.

"Several applications, specifically in the medical and electronics industries, require extreme precision and dexterity for handling small parts in a very tight environment," said Gregg Brunnick, Director of Product Management for Epson Robots. "With the Flexion N-Series, Epson is bringing to market an intelligent, compact solution and new class of 6-axis robots to meet the demanding needs of advanced manufacturing."

Key applications for the Flexion N-Series include micro-sized electronic, automotive, medical, and consumer goods parts assembly and managing of well plates in laboratories. The Flexion N-Series is available in both ceiling and tabletop configurations. Compatible and packaged with the RC700A controller, the Flexion N-Series also utilizes Epson's user-friendly RC+ robot development software and can be used with Epson's expansive range of integrated options, including vision guidance, force sensing, fieldbus and GUI builder.
