Epson GX. Taking SCARA robot performance to the next level.

Introducing the GX8, part of Epson’s new high-power-density SCARA robot lineup. The GX8 builds upon 40 years of expertise to deliver next-level performance and flexibility in a compact footprint. A breakthrough in productivity, the GX8 uses advanced Epson GYROPLUS technology to provide fast production speeds and smooth motion control, all with higher payloads.

Engineered to meet your unique automation needs, the GX8 offers multiple arm configurations and a 450-650 mm reach to accomplish the most demanding tasks—including assembly, pick and place, dispensing, and other material handling with ultra high precision. Its innovative slimline design easily integrates into Cleanroom, ESD or Washdown environments and quickly handles payloads up to 8 kg from a conveniently small form factor. Designed for ease of use, Epson RC+® software works seamlessly with the GX8 to create powerful automation solutions and offers integrated options to simplify the most complex applications. Plus, with battery-less encoders, a built-in Ethernet cable and other useful features, it supports a remarkably low total cost of ownership.
