Epson G1 Mini SCARA Robots

175 | 225

  • Best in Class Cycle Time and Precision
  • High Performance, High Rigidity Arm Design
  • Industry Leading Mini SCARA
  • ISO Clean & ESD Compliant Models

Epson Robots started the Compact class of SCARA robots about 10 years ago with the simple understanding that "smaller is better". Now 10 years later, once again Epson Robots is leading the way with the same "smaller is better" priciple applied to our G1 series robots. Epson G1 175 and 225mm arms are Mini SCARA arms with the same high performance you've come to expect from all EPSON Robots. G1 cycle times lead the industry and the best part is that they not only beat competitive models in speed tests, they do it while handling larger payloads as compared to competitive models. Also, with repeatabilities down to 0.005mm G1 arms can handle many of the high precision jobs that used to require high precision XY arms which take up lots of factory space with their large footprints.

EPSON G1 Mini SCARA robots are the robot of choice for super high precision, high speed applications where performance AND low cost are required. They are ideal for applications such as hard drive assembly, lab automation, electronics assembly, medical device assembly, photonics, semiconductor, telecommunications, solar, and many others.

Unique to the G1 Mini SCARA robots is that they are available as 4 axis or 3 axis models. G1 Mini SCARA robots can be ordered with the last rotational axis (U-Axis) removed. This is for applications where rotational orientation of the part is not required.

Features & Benefits

EPSON created the compact class of SCARA robots over 10 years ago with our E-Series line. Now 10 years later, we introduced an even smaller, faster and more precise SCARA we call the Mini SCARA. While small in size, the G1 Mini SCARA arms incorporate all the same high peformance components and design concepts as the other G-Series robots such as high rigidity arms as well as our PowerDrive servo technology to yield high performance results in a compact and lower cost format.

High Performance

  • Best in Class Motion Range with maximum footprint efficiency
  • Industry Leading Cycle Times as low as 0.29 secs
  • Outstanding Accel/Decel Rates with smooth start/stop motion
  • Low residual vibration due to unique high rigidity arm design
  • High duty cycle allows fast cycles 24/7 (compare vs. competitive models)

Wide Variety of Arms and Configurations

  • Arm lengths of 175 and 225mm provide customers the ability to choose the best arm for the job
  • Unique 3 Axis models available (removes 4th axis for applications not requiring J4 orientation)
  • ISO Clean & ESD Compliant Models for semiconductor and static sensitive applications like hard drive assembly
  • Best in Class Controllers and Development Software
  • Epson RC+ leads the industry in ease of use to save development time
  • Two tiered controller offerings allow high performance or low cost solutions with G1 robots
  • Integrated options to maximize system performance and reduce overall development time (see options page for more details)
  • High performance processing power many times faster than competitors models

Epson RC700A Controller

Overview

  • Industry Leading Ease of Use with Epson RC+ (New Version 7.0)
  • Controls Epson G-Series, RS-Series and C-Series Robots
  • High Performance, Open Architecture, PC Based
  • Supports Windows 7 Professional, Windows 8 Professional
  • Wide Variety of Integrated Options Available

The EPSON RC700A controller is the next generation high performance controller line with both power, open architecture and industry leading ease of use. More than just a connection to a PC, the RC700A integrates both the power of PC based controls with the with the power of a real time engine running the up to 32 tasks and the SPEL+ language. In addition, the RC700A uses our EPSON RC+ 7.0 development environment which is the Industry Leader in ease of use. Advanced and beginning users alike select the RC700A as their robot controller of choice because it saves them time and money with every application. Capable of controlling up to (4) 4 or 6 axis robots, the RC700A provides superior PowerDrive servo control for super smooth motion, fast accel/decel times, and fast cycle times. The RC700A works with the C4-Series and C8-Series 6-Axis robots, the G-Series SCARA robots and the RS-Series SCARA Robots. All of this along with an open architecture design allows customers to add 3rd party software and hardware to build systems to suit their needs.

The RC700A comes standard with the latest version (7.0) of our Industry Leading EPSON RC+ Controls software and lots of fully integrated options. As the Industry Leader in ease of use, EPSON RC+ wizards, point and click setup, Jog and Teach window, Integrated Debugger, Epson Smartsense and many other features help reduce overall development time as compared to competitive robot systems. In addition, options such as Vision Guidance, .NET support (RC+ 7.0 API), EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, Profibus, GUI Builder and much more are fully integrated into the EPSON RC+ development environment to maximize performance and ease of use.

The RC700A is capable of controlling up to 6 axes from the core controller but additional robots can be added through external drive units as well. Up to (4) robots can be controlled from just 1 RC700A controller for single source development in a multi-robot workcell. All this power from a single controller. No wonder the EPSON RC700A is the high performance robot controller of choice.
