VT-Series 6-Axis Robots

With next-level technology, the VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot is ideal for a wide variety of simple applications. The feature-packed performer includes a built-in controller, plus simplified cabling with a hollow end-of-arm design―all in a compact, SlimLine structure. The VT-Series is also available with optional Cleanroom and IP models.

In 2020, the VT6L won a Reddot Award for its design and space-saving installation plus was the winner of the Engineers’ Choice Award in the Motion Control – Robotics segment. Additionally, the VT6L was named a 2019 Assembly Trade Show New Product of the Year for its innovative features.

N-Series 6-Axis Robots

With the N-Series, Epson introduced the world’s first folding-arm 6-Axis robots. Built in response to a growing demand for more efficient workspace utilization, this lineup optimizes motion efficiency for faster cycle times, minimizes elbow interference, and improves tight-space motion capability.

The N2 was named a 2018 Silver Edison Award Winner in the category of Applied Technology and won the highly acclaimed 2017 Golden Mousetrap Award in the category of Automation & Control: Motors and Mechanical Motion Devices.

T-Series All-in-One SCARA Robots

The T-Series All-in-One SCARA robots offer manufacturers the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions. This innovative alternative installs in minutes and virtually eliminates any space-constraint issues. A unique all-in-one solution, it features a built-in controller and power for end-of-arm tooling. Starting at $7,495, this full featured performer is an extraordinary value-without-compromise automation solution.

Integrated Vision Guidance

Designed for vision guidance applications, Epson Vision Guide makes precision robotic guidance easy to use. Fully integrated within the Epson RC+® development environment for easy configuration and calibration, this intuitive solution features a point-and-click interface that makes it simple for users of all levels.
