Epson C4 Compact 6-Axis Robots

High Speed - Exceptional Flexibility

  • Fast Cycle Times with crisp motion
  • Best in Class Motion Range
  • Compact design for maximum flexibility
  • ISO Clean & ESD Compliant Models

The Epson C4 compact 6-Axis robots continues the tradition of setting new standards for small sized 6-axis robot performance. As the leader in compact 6-Axis robots, our new Epson C4 design includes a unique compact wrist pitch as well as a slim body elbow design. With outstanding flexibility, Epson C4 robots were made for big jobs in tiny spaces. Our goal was to build a robust robot in a compact shell capable of meeting Epson's high performance standards. The new Epson C4 does that and more by allowing payloads up to 4Kg while maintaining fast speeds and cycle times.

The Epson C4 cycle times are 0.37 seconds which is faster than many competitors SCARA models. All 6 joints on the C4 are on average 32.4% faster than equivalent competitor models in its' class. The C4's footprint to motion range ratio is in a class by itself and the outstanding flexibility allows Epson robots to do jobs that other small 6 axis arms simply cannot do (or that take much more cycle time to complete).

How Do We Do It?

Our slimline body and compact wrist design enable greater motion range and less mechanical restrictions than comparably sized models. In addition larger motors and superior servo controls allow for fast yet precise motion control which means smoother motion for your next application. In addition Epson acceleration/deceleration rates due to our high performance Epson proprietary servo system provide fast motion on a smooth path.

Industries We Serve

Epson C4 compact 6-axis robots are ideally suited for the Lab Automation, Medical, Consumer, Food, Automotive, Electronics, PC Peripheral, Semiconductor, Plastics, Appliance and Aerospace industries. They can be used for a wide variety of applications ranging from blood sample handling to DNA testing or from instrument panel assembly to medical instrument kitting. There are tens of thousands of different applications that these robots can handle. Give us a call and let us help you with your next application.

Building on the success form the Epson C3 Compact 6-axis robots, the Epson C4 Compact 6-axis robots were made from the ground up for maximum flexibility, motion range and speed with an increased payload capability. They include all the latest advances in robot design and performance. Epson C4 Compact 6-Axis Robots combined with our PowerDrive servo technology yield high performance results that customers have come to appreciate and expect from Epson. Also, included with our new C4 Compact 6-axis robots is our new leading edge motion control feedback system utilizing Epson QMEM's (Quartz Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) which sense angular velocity and feedback to our servo motion servo systems to help significantly reduce vibration during motion and stop/start.
