Epson EZ Modules 2-Axis Robots

2-Axis EZ Modules

  • Rigid Arm Construction
  • High Speed and High Payload Capable
  • XY and YZ Configurations Available
  • High Precision Linear Guides

2-Axis EPSON EZ modules are available in 2 different configurations. XY and YZ. XY type modules are the typical cartesian style configuration but with EPSON EZ modules they are far from typical in performance, reliability and ease of use. With speeds of up to 1500mm/sec per axis, payloads to 25Kg and repeatibilities to +/-10 microns (per axis), EPSON 2 axis RG-HM EZ Modules are hard to beat. The optional YZ configuration allows motion along a horizontal and vertical planes for maximum flexibility with 2-axis EZ Modules. EPSON EZ Modules are commonly used in medical, lab automation, semiconductor, industrial, automotive, electronics and many other industries.

EPSON EZ Modules are available with our industry leading RC700A workcell controller. It is the controller of choice for customers that prefer open architecture PC based controls for maximum power and flexibility. With EPSON, customers can also take advantage of one controls solution for their entire factory regardless of which EPSON Robots they select (6-Axis, SCARA or Linear Axes). Plus, our development environment, EPSON RC+ , provides industry leading ease of use due to the intuitive design and multitude of time saving features and capabilities. The power and flexibility of the EPSON RC700A PC based controller also reduces workcell integration by providing all the functionality normally required for a typical robot workcell in one compact package.

2-Axis EPSON EZ Modules are ideal for simple pick and place applications but they can also be used for many different jobs like sealant or glue laying applications, parts handling and even precision assembly tasks. EPSON EZ Modules are commonly used in conjunction with other EPSON SCARA or 6-Axis robots.
