Epson C8 6 Axis Robot Arm 8kg High Load And Larger Operating Distance Compact Cobot Manipulator Robot Arm

Epson C8L long-distance 6-axis robot has high performance and wider range of motion, while maintaining its unique slim linear package. The load is as high as 8kg, it can enter the narrow space, complete a variety of different medium-sized six axis work, and occupies a small area. Like the Epson C4 robot, the c8l design includes a compact wrist pitch and slim body elbows. The weight is only 52kg, while ensuring a larger range of motion and faster cycle time. In a word, Epson c8l robot is specially used for heavy work in narrow space. Our goal is to continue to develop durable and compact 6-axis robots that meet Epson’s high performance standards. The new Epson c8l robot increases the load to 8kg, so as to complete more work, while ensuring fast speed, short cycle time and small floor area.

Product Features

Epson C8L robot only needs 0.38 second cycle time (load up to 3kg). It uses a 1000W motor on the J1 axis to start, which is powerful but compact. The range of motion is larger than the floor area, and has a high degree of flexibility.

• Fast cycle time, easy movement
• Innovative residual vibration control technology developed by Epson (see features / advantages page)
• Greater range of motion
• Slim linear design for greater flexibility
• ISO class 3 clean / antistatic and protective (IP67)

What should we do? (Epson’s innovative development)

C8 robot has a slender linear body and a compact wrist, and has a larger range of motion and less mechanical restrictions. Bigger motor and excellent servo controller make its speed faster, motion control more accurate and motion more stable in the next application. In addition, Epson innovatively developed a high-performance servo system. The acceleration / deceleration performance of the robot can make it move faster on a smooth path.

Epson innovative development: Aftervibration technology — most 6-axis robot manufacturers need to expand the size to achieve the rigidity required for excellent performance. Epson’s aftervibration technology enables the slender linear arm to produce high speed, accuracy and acceleration / deceleration performance. Vibration reduction is the key to achieve high performance. The residual vibration technology adopts Epson quartz micromotor system sensor, and greatly reduces the vibration by detecting and eliminating the vibration.

Characteristics and advantages

Based on the successful experience of C4 robot, Epson C8 robot maintains the key slim linear design and C4 robot’s high performance, high load and larger operating distance.Suitable for different applications requiring high flexibility, high speed and small footprint. Epson C8L long-distance 6-axis robot uses power driven servo technology to achieve the high-performance results expected by customers. In addition, by using the cutting-edge residual vibration technology, namely Epson quartz micro electromechanical system, which can sense the angular velocity and feed it back to the servo motion system, C8 series robots can greatly reduce the vibration in the process of motion and start / stop, making the motion more stable and positioning faster.
