Epson Scara G3
The G3 robot is the smallest robot of the G-series. It comes in 250, 300 and 350 arm lengths
and is capable of handling up to 3 kg payloads at high speed.
Epson came up with a unique arm design to maximize the working area of the G3 robot.
Two versions can be ordered: left (Sinus) or right (Cosinus).
With the new design the G3 is capable of covering area larger
than a DIN A4 sheet of paper, making it the only small size
SCARA robot to be able to do it.
The G-series are Epson's newest generation of Scara robots. The G-series robots are
considerably quicker and more precise than the previous E2-series. There are over 200
robot types to choose from, ensuring that to get the right robot
for the specific application:
- reaches: 175-1000 mm
- payloads: 1-20 kgs
- mounting options: base, wall, ceiling
- environment: cleanroom, ESD
- protection: standard, IP54, IP65
They are ideal for the medical, automotive, electronics, consumer, food, lab automation,
PC peripheral, semiconductor, plastics, appliance and aerospace industries.

EPSON's G3 scara robots can be ordered with 2 different types of controllers: RC180 or RC620.
RC180: compact controller
By default, all Epson scara robots are shipped with the RC180 controller. The RC180 is a compact controller,
suitable for most applications. Programming is done via an external Windows PC, which can be connected
to the controller by USB or Ethernet network. The RC180's options include camera recognition, additonal
I/Os, Fieldbus communication cards, etc.
RC620: professional controller
The RC620 was designed for complex applications. The RC620 comes with a built-in industrial PC (Windows).
The robots programming can be done right on the controller, by connecting an external display, keyboard
and mouse to it.
The RC 620 is also capable of controlling more than 1 robot (max. 3 x 6-axis or 4 x scara robots), up to 20 axis.
Using Fieldbus communication, it can also be used as a Fieldbus "Master". It has extensive optional possibilities,
such as conveyor tracking.
PLC functions, multitasking
The RC 180 / RC 620 robot controllers are not just for robot operation, they can also be used to automate other parts
of the application. Using the controller's I/Os and the programming environment, they can be used as a PLC, independent
from the robots.

Epson's smart camera system is easy to install and simple to operate. Thanks to the
seamless Vision Editor integration, the camera plugs right into the robot's
programming environment. With the help of the powerful geometry tools the camera
programming is intuitive. There are two versions of the camera: stationary and
You can use other type of cameras or vision systems with our robots as well.
