The automation industry is constantly bringing our customers new innovative ways to use machines for their production needs. The Epson SCARA Robot and Flexibowl have been working together delivering accurate feeding solutions to the manufacturing world for years.
Industrial robots are defined as ‘multi-functional manipulators designed to move parts through various programmed motions. As such, robots provide consistent reliable performance, repetitive accuracy and can handle heavy workloads and perform in harsh environments. Additionally, robots can be quickly reprogrammed to reflect changes in production needs and cycles.
The SCARA robot is a manipulator with four degrees of freedom. This type of robot has been developed to improve the speed and repeatability ON PICK&PLACE TASKS from one location to another or to speed and improve the steps involved in assembly. Making it the perfect match for FlexiBowl®.
These robots are used in the automotive field, electronic, and other industrial fields where manufacturers need to feed bulk components of all sizes; FlexiBowl® excellent performance is quickly replacing other parts feeders.
