Epson T6 SCARA Robot supports payloads up to 6 kg

Epson SCARA robots in the T series, which have a built-in controller and are designed for maximum simplicity of installation and usability, lower the barriers to automation on the customer’s end and are perfect for automating simple material handling tasks.
The T6, a brawnier version of the popular T3, boosts productivity by handling payloads up to 6 kg, making it ideal for customers who want to use a T series robot to transport larger, heavier parts or to carry multiple parts at one time.

T series applications

  1. Automation of test machine loading/unloading and other simple processes that previously relied on people because automation did not make financial sense.
  2. T series robots can be used instead of multiple low-cost single-axis robots that take up a lot of space and require troublesome adjustment and maintenance work. Users will save space, reduce setup time, and minimize downtime.

T series features

1. Built-in controller that saves space and simplifies robot setup and redeployment

The integrated controller eliminates the need for controller setup and cable routing, making system setup and redeployment much faster and easier.
With a separate controller no longer taking up space, the entire robotic system is more compact, allowing manufacturers to use their factory floor space more efficiently and productively.

2. Batteryless motor unit that reduces maintenance and manufacturing line downtime

Batteryless motors mean that users will never need to buy, replace, and dispose of old motor batteries. Users can sharply reduce running costs and line downtime.

3. I/O ports for end-effectors that simplify cabling

The end-effector I/O ports are provided near the end of the robot arm and supplied with 24 V power. These ports make setup easier by simplifying cabling, power, and other connections to the end-effector.

4. Shorter cable duct that improves stability

The robot is designed with a shorter cable duct at the top of the robot. The shorter duct remains stable, with little vibration, even during robot operation, and cabling can easily be routed through the duct.

5. Support for AC100V to 240V single-phase power, and 50% higher energy efficiency

While robots in Epson’s LS series support 200 VAC to 240 VAC single-phase power, the T series can run off anything from 100 VAC to 240 VAC single-phase power. T series robots can thus be installed in laboratories and other places where only 100 VAC is available*1. These robots also offer outstanding energy performance, consuming 50% less electricity than earlier models*2 thanks to more efficient use of power (e.g., heating and power factor).

*1 A rated current of at least 20 A is required when operating the robots from a 100 VAC power source.

*2 Based on comparisons with Epson LS6 (and an RC90 controller) and T6 robots running the same pick-and-place operations. This comparative data is from actual measurements and identical energy performance is not guaranteed.

Gast Claw Pumps offer high efficiency and low operating costs

Gast Claw pumps contain contactless rotors that are synchronized by gears without any lubricant present.  This provides them thclaw-pumpe benefit of avoiding any residue generated by friction or rubbing during rotation.  The lack of friction between the rotors also leads to lower maintenance and long lasting performance. 


With only moderate energy consumption and very high efficiency, Gast’s claw pumps are a green technology which guarantee low operating costs.  Designed with the end-user in mind, these pumps also feature continuous duty and simplified maintenance, truly taking efficiency to the next level.  READ MORE
