Epson Expands Award-Winning Flexion N-Series Robots with the N6 6-Axis Robot

CARSON, CA | Expanding on its award-winning Flexion™ N-Series lineup, Epson Robots introduces its new Flexion N6 6-Axis robot. Featuring the world’s first folding-arm design and a strong footprint-to-reach ratio, this compact 6-Axis robot offers a powerful solution for tight or confined spaces in factory automation. The Flexion N6 is available from Epson today.

With a unique ability to fold under itself, the robot helps reduce intermediate points and shorten cycle times. Ideal for vertical load/unload applications; this compact robot provides the ultimate in motion and workspace efficiency. Innovative tight-space motion capability helps ensure the robot’s arm extremities avoid obstacles, while Epson’s proprietary Residual Vibration Technology delivers outstanding speed, precision, acceleration/deceleration rates and more.

The Flexion N6 has a longer arm (1,000 mm) and can handle higher payloads (6 kg) than Epson’s previously released Flexion N2 6-Axis robot. The N6 will also have 850mm reach and clean versions due to release late 2018. The Flexion N2, the first robot to feature the unique folding arm design, was awarded the Edison Award for Innovation and UBM’s Golden Mousetrap award in 2017.
