Epson GX8-Series. Taking SCARA robot performance to the next level.

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

Featuring SafeSense technology with an EN/ISO 13849 safety rating, the RC700E controller provides safety rated speed and position monitoring that, with proper risk assessment, can allow humans and robots to interact without a safety fence. This next-level functional safety technology helps improve productivity by enabling faster interaction with machines for daily operations and maintenance. And by potentially removing the need for physical safety barriers, users can help reduce the footprint and overall cost of their robot automation system.

Engineered to meet your unique automation needs, the GX8B offers multiple arm configurations and a 450, 550 or 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, compact design easily integrates into Cleanroom, ESD or Washdown environments and handles payloads up to 8 kg from a conveniently small form factor. Designed for ease of use, Epson RC+® software works seamlessly with the GX8B 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.

  • Ultra high performance and flexibility — high throughput with heavy payloads and multiple arm configurations to accomplish the most demanding tasks with leading-edge precision
  • Unique high-power-density SCARA — innovative, compact design handles heavy workloads at fast speeds, all in a small footprint
  • Fast cycle times — high acceleration, smooth motion and fast settling times help maximize throughput with proprietary GYROPLUS vibration reduction system, plus no ringing or overshoot1
  • Ultimate ease of use — intuitive and feature-packed Epson RC+ development software helps create powerful solutions with a simple user interface, integrated debugger and advanced 3D simulator
  • Low total cost of ownership — includes battery-less encoders, a built-in Ethernet cable and Epson RC+ software with no recurring license fee; rich suite of safety features included with RC700E controller
  • SafeSense technology — standard and advanced safety features can allow for increased productivity and worker protection while potentially minimizing machine footprint due to the reduction of physical barriers
  • Optimized footprint — table, wall- and ceiling-mount options, as well as cable bottom exit option; 450, 550 or 650 mm reach available; longer Z axis available on all models
  • Built for demanding environments — Standard, Cleanroom (ISO3)2 and ESD, Protected IP65, and new standalone ESD models available
  • Advanced integrated options — Vision Guidance, Parts Feeding, Force Guidance, Conveyor Tracking, Fieldbus, API.NET and Arm Length Calibration
  • Industry 4.0 ready — advanced OPC UA for robotics connectivity provides next-level integration and monitoring
