Entry-Level 6-Axis Robot

Epson Robots offers its VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot, a new entry level offering that has been added to its 6-Axis lineup.

The VT6L is designed for simple parts transfer applications such as machine tool and injection molding load/unload, pick & place, dispensing and simple assembly projects. The All-in-One design with built-in controller saves on valuable factory space, while its SlimLine structure with compact wrist pitch enables access to hard-to-reach areas in confined spaces. "This innovation opens a world of application opportunities due to its price and ease of use," said the spokesperson. "Many applications that were too costly to implement with standard 6-axis robots will now be possible."

"The VT6L was created based on the successful T-Series All-in-One design with built-in controller," said Gregg Brunnick, Director of Product Management for Epson Robots. "This innovation provides an easy-to-use 6-axis solution at a low cost-perfect for simple applications."

The VT6L offers easy integration tools such as vision guidance, and features a reach of up to 900 mm and a payload up to 6 kg. It includes a hollow end-of-arm design for simplified cabling and more versatile tooling. The VT6L offers 110 V and 220 V power and installs in minutes. No battery is required for the encoder, reducing the overall cost of ownership.
