New addition to the hottest robot camp Epson helps

  • Detail

Recently, Seiko Epson group (hereinafter referred to as Epson) officially launched its latest 6-axis robot C8 series, which is also its third-generation product since entering the 6-axis robot market

it is reported that this is a compact, slender and light-weight robot, which is used to meet the needs of the industrial industry in the compact space of loading and unloading of processing equipment. In addition to inheriting the excellent low vibration characteristics of the previous generation C4 series, the C8 series has increased the load to 8kg, which is also the largest load of Epson 6-axis robot at present. The selected crushing situation will also be different, with a self weight of only 62 kg. At the same time, three arm length models of 700, 900 and 1400mm are designed

the c8xl model, which will be launched in September this year, has a maximum operating radius of 1400mm. Its slender arm can slide well through the surrounding objects without touching them. It is very suitable for robots to enter a limited space to perform tasks, such as taking parts out of machine tools or injection molding machines that produce errors. Tan Weiqing, manager of industrial robot Department of Epson (China) Co., Ltd., told. In his opinion, these characteristics make c8xl the best choice for loading and unloading parts in the automotive parts and electronic industry. In addition, thanks to its lighter weight, c8xl is still a desktop robot, but unlike many similar products that need to be fixed on the ground, it can replace heavy robots with a similar range of motion, saving a lot of manpower and space, and making it easier for users to realize industrial automation

as we all know, Epson is good at producing printers and projectors. In fact, Epson is already an expert in the field of small industrial robots. Epson started the design and development of small industrial robots in 1981 to meet the requirements of Seiko watch movement assembly automation. For more than 30 years, Epson has always adhered to the characteristics of province, small size and precision, seamlessly connected robot technology with Epson's technical advantages in other fields, and constantly launched compact, energy-saving and high-precision robot products

in the 4-axis robot market, Epson has maintained the first market share for three consecutive years. Tan Weiqing pointed out. In 2009, Epson fully entered the 6-axis robot market, and launched C3 series products that year; In 2012, C4 series products were launched. According to the changes in market demand, Epson will launch a new generation of products at intervals. Tan Weiqing said so

it is noteworthy that C8 series still applies the unique qmems technology of Epson robot. According to tan Weiqing, qmems is actually a precision vibration reduction control system, which suppresses vibration through software that senses equipment vibration. With the guarantee of this technology, our robot is not only stable, but also can start and stop quickly. The time to stop and stabilize is only 0.2 seconds, which is far lower than that of similar products on the market. Tan Weiqing also said that at present, the software version used in EMS technology of QM non-metallic impact testing machine has been upgraded from 5.0 in 2009 to 7.0

it is reported that the market price of the upcoming c8xl is expected to be about 200000 yuan, which is 20% - 30% higher than that of similar products. In this regard, Tan Weiqing said that due to the strong correlation between small robots and surrounding applications, Epson robots tend to be more outstanding and cost-effective in helping users reduce costs, improve product quality, increase production, and are expected to show explosive growth in sales revenue in the first half of 2017. Moreover, Epson provides more professional original factory services in terms of technical services, after-sales services and upgrading, which protects the interests of customers. According to tan Weiqing, Epson machine characters are worth it

for a long time, Epson has followed the process of selecting target customers, mining deep-seated needs and solving practical problems when developing new products. According to tan Weiqing, the key application of small industrial robots in the 3C industry is often process upgrading. For example, when Epson studied the production supply chain, it found that there are 28 kinds of precision assembly processes in 180 enterprises accounting for 80% of the market share. After careful research, six typical application schemes were summarized. Epson integrated these applications on a device (i.e. robot) for use, It helps supply chain enterprises greatly improve production efficiency and product quality

in addition, Epson has established a very perfect sales channel in China. Our core partners are value-added service providers. We have about 20 in the country, and they can cover more than 300 integrators. Tan Weiqing said. According to him, 300 system integrators will cover more than 1000 users. In such a research system, Epson continues to develop robots with different applications while upgrading products

in 2015, we expect to sell more than 4000 sets in China. According to tan Weiqing, as more and more supply chain manufacturers buy robots, they also begin to promote robot automation on a large scale. In the future, small robots will maintain an annual growth rate of 30%

c8 we hope to sell 100 sets by 2016. Tan Weiqing preached. It is reported that the C8 series will be assembled at Epson's robot factory in Shenzhen
