Epson G6 SCARA Robots

450/550/650

High Speed and High Variety

  • Best in Class Motion Range
  • Tabletop, Ceiling and Wall Mount Models
  • Arm lengths of 450, 550 and 650mm
  • ISO Clean & ESD Compliant Models

Epson G6 SCARA robots are perfect for applications requiring high speed and/or high precision such as mechanical or electrical assembly, pick and place, kitting, dispensing and much more. With applications running in demanding industries such as Automotive, Medical, Semiconductor, Food, Pharmaceutical, Hard Drive, Consumer, and many others, Epson G6 SCARA's are the robot of choice. G6 SCARA arms are available in 450, 550 and 650mm lengths with either 180 (150 clean) or 330 (300 clean) Z-Axis lengths. They are also available in table top, wall or ceiling mount configurations. Clean/ESD and Washdown models are also available in all 3 core arm lengths. That makes for a lot of choices to make sure you get the right robot for your next application.

Unique to the G6 is our new Max-E envelope design. With Max-E, Epson G6-55x robots are now able to do jobs that previously required 600mm arms. Smaller footprints are the key and that translates to less factory space requirements and less overall factory costs.
