Epson Robots awarded First Team in Leadership Automation Program

Last Wednesday, May 2, 2018, Epson Robots, the leading SCARA (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm) robot manufacturer in the world, announced that it was recognized by PMMI Media Group’s Automation World magazine as a First Team category leader in the 2017 Leadership in Automation program.

The program highlights readers’ preferred suppliers across a variety of automation technology categories. The list is developed with a write-in survey, which is significant because it means that respondents were not swayed by a list of names on a form.

Automation World, the leading business magazine serving automation professionals, launched this community-based program in January 2012. Automation professionals were invited to vote for their favorite automation vendors in unaided-recall surveys.

Epson Robots is a global leader in PC controlled precision factory automation, with an installed base of well over 65,000 robots worldwide and a product line of hundreds of models of easy to use SCARA, Cartesian and 6-Axis robots based on a conventional PC based platform. Building on a 35+-year heritage, Epson Robots today delivers robots for precision assembly and material handling applications in the aerospace, appliance, automotive, biotechnology, consumer product, electronics, food processing, medical device, pharmaceutical, plastics, semiconductor, and telecommunication industries.

Over two dozen categories are featured; representing the wide variety of automation technologies, software and products in use by today’s manufacturing professionals across the discrete, batch and continuous process manufacturing industries. Epson Robots was awarded a place on the 2017 First Team in the Robotics category.

Gregg Brunnick, Director of product management for Epson Robots said, “We strive to offer the most innovative and highest quality robotics solutions along with excellent customer service. Automation World delivers insightful coverage about industrial automation and is a highly regarded publisher—we are delighted its readers have chosen us as one of their preferred Robotics suppliers.”

Publisher of Automation World, Kurt Belisle, shared his enthusiasm by congratulating the company, “We’re pleased to recognize the First Team Honorees who offer both excellent customer service and best-in-class product innovation. We appreciate the end-users who took the time to vote for their favorite solution providers. Congratulations to the honorees!”

Recently introduced innovative solutions from Epson Robots include the Flexion™ N-Series 6-Axis robot with the world’s first patented folding arm design that is changing the scope of robot-based automation, and the Synthis T3 All-in-One SCARA Robot which comes with a built-in controller, a new technology feature that helps reduce space requirements and simplify setup.
