Epson Robots’ VT6L All-in-One 6-axis robot won “Product of the Year” award in the Robotics category at the annual Assembly Show.
A total of 20 finalists in the “Product of the Year” category displayed their latest cutting-edge technology and equipment.
Attendees at the show, which is dedicated to assembly technology, voted during the event and during the Morning Mingle Breakfast on the show floor.
“We strive to offer the most innovative and highest quality robotics solutions and are delighted to have won this award,” said Gregg Brunnick, director of product management for Epson Robots.
“Our VT6L was created based on the highly successful T3-series All-in-One design with built-in controller. This next generation technology provides an easy-to-use 6-axis solution at an industry disruptive price point.”
Epson’s VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot is a new entry level offering to the award-winning 6-Axis line up. With a reach up to 900 mm and a payload up to 6kg, this compact, easy to install robot includes next generation technology, is ideal for a wide range of simple applications and is offered at the ultra-low cost of $13,900. It is now also available in Cleanroom (ISO 4) and Protected (IP67) installation environments.
The VT6L is ideal for simple applications such as load/unload, pick-and-place, dispensing and assembly. The All-in-One design with built-in controller saves on valuable factory space while its SlimLine structure featuring a compact wrist pitch enables access to hard-to-reach areas in confined spaces.
This groundbreaking innovation opens a world of application opportunities due to its affordable price and ease of use. Many applications that were too costly to implement with standard 6-Axis robots, will now be possible.
