C8 Series

Heavier payloads

Robots in the C8 series boast an 8-kg payload capacity, double that of the smaller C4 series. The higher transport load was achieved with the slimline arm thanks to Epson's unique vibration control technology. The higher payload capacity will allow the robots to use items such as heavier multi-grippers and tool changers, and will also enable the transport of heavy objects and the simultaneous transport of multiple workpieces.

Slimline arm with a maximum operating radius of 1,400 mm

Despite weighing only 62 kg, the C8XL boasts a maximum operating radius of 1,400 mm. The slender arm is better able to slip past surrounding objects without touching them, making this robot perfect for tasks that require the arm to enter confined spaces, such as is the case when removing parts from machine tools or molding machines. These features make the C8XL the best model for machine tending in the auto parts and electronic industries.

Flexible installation

Thanks to its lighter weight, the C8XL is still a table-top robot unlike many competitors that require ground fixing. It can be substituted for heavier robots with a similar reach.

Product Features
