At the Battery Show, taking place Sept. 11-13 at the Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, Mich., Epson Robots (Booth #1110) is showcasing robots for the factory automation industry that include all the latest advances in robot design and performance, including integrated Vision guided battery load and Force guidance based battery test applications. The Battery Show covers today’s emerging advanced battery technology for the automotive, portable electronics, medical technology, military and telecommunications, and utility and renewable energy support sectors.
The Epson C4L Long Reach 6-Axis Robot provides a slimLine design for maximum flexibility along with long reach and up to a 4Kg payload. It includes a compact wrist pitch design to allow easier access into tight work areas.
The C4L robot workcell will show battery pack testing using Epson’s Force Guide product, which provides integrated high precision force feedback. The robot will test rotational torque values for assembled lug nuts and linear force values through wire pull testing. Proper connection of wires to batteries is critical for proper battery power in automobiles and other devices. Integrated testing as a part of the assembly process can catch quality issues early in the manufacturing process.
The C4L is suitable for the lab automation, medical, consumer, food, automotive, electronics, PC peripheral, semiconductor, plastics, appliance and aerospace industries where it can be used for a wide variety of applications such as part load/unload, pallet and tray transfers, kitting, assembly and many more.
