The 6-axis EPX2900's principal feature is its expansive reach. It can extend a full 2,900mm horizontally. Because of this, the robot does have to be readjusted or moved to reach every part. This efficiency pays off - saving on overall cycle times and increasing product consistency. Since they apply paint so evenly without over spraying, robots are able to conserve materials.
When painting, a hollow wrist design provides a number of advantages. The Motoman EPX2900 robot's 70mm diameter hollow wrist makes it easier and faster to mount spray EOAT. It also streamlines the entire upper arm. With all the cabling and paint hoses routed through the hollow wrist, this painting robot can work in closer proximity to parts.
The new EPX2900 offers a 20kg payload, a floor mounted setup, and a top of the line NX100-FM controller. Protected by a Factory Mutual (FM) class 1, division 1 hazardous environments rating, the EPX2900 painting robot can work long hours without incident. It is not susceptible to any health hazards associated with painting and coating - the fumes or chemicals.
