Seiko Epson Corporation has announced the market launch of the new LS series of industrial SCARA robots.
Labor shortages and the need for greater production efficiency and stable quality in emerging nations that volume-produce the vast majority of smartphones, electronic automotive components, and other small electronic gear have combined to cause industrial robot demand to skyrocket among companies looking to significantly boost throughput.
Responding to these needs, Epson, a leader in SCARA robots for industrial applications, added the new LS series designed to make light of heavy manual work. By introducing the LS series, users can now maintain high-efficiency assembly, transfer, alignment, and placement operations, reduce personnel requirements, and achieve consistent quality.
Epson sees the commercial and industrial sector, as well as emerging economies, as important growth markets. Going forward, Epson will continue to introduce products that meet the needs of the market, strengthen local customer support, and work even harder to meet customers’ growing expectations.
