Talking with Epson Robots about PACK EXPO

Contributed by | Epson Robots

Your company exhibited at PACK Expo, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

PACK Expo serves some of the key industries for Epson Robots such as automotive, food (e.g. meat packaging), electronics, consumer and pharmaceutical/medical (e.g. automated prescription fulfillment). It’s important for us to reach this audience and PACK Expo offers the perfect venue for that.  It’s is a quality tradeshow with a focus on innovative packaging and with our long reach and heavy payload capabilities, our SCARA robots are very popular for the packaging industry.

 

What were some things visitors to your booth saw this year?

We showcased our newly launched T3 All-in-One SCARA robot, which addresses the need for a cost-effective and easy-to-use automation solution that is ideal for simple applications and a great alternative to slides.

We also displayed our Flexion N2 6-Axis robot which features a revolutionary compact folding arm design that reduces space requirements and maximizes motion efficiency, as well as a two other powerful, compact and high speed 6-Axis robots, and two fast, compact SCARA robots showing our integrated vision guidance solutions.

 

Any new products introduced?

We introduced the new T-Series All-in-One robots with built-in controller, a new technology feature that reduces space requirements and simplifies setup. The T3, the first product in the T-Series, offers a cost-effective and simple-to-integrate and install automation solution for simple applications such as pick and place, assembly, parts handling and dispensing applications in industries ranging from automotive and medical development, to lab automation, consumer electronics, electronic components and industrial.

 

When you got a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what interesting things caught your eye?

We have seen a few interesting things on the show floor. One company, for example, Soft Robotics, showed its unique gripper solution that can manipulate items of varying size, shape and weight. Grippers are typically made for one type of part.  But this gripper could be applicable to a wide variety of industrial applications that previously were off limits to automation.

 

PACK Expo has many educational sessions & Demo’s, was your company involved in any of them this year?  

We were not involved this year but are looking into the possibility of participating next year to broaden our exposure.
