Epson is very bullish on the introductory education of robotic automation to new users. "We're finding there is a lot of interest in this topic, says Scott Marsic, product manager for Epson Robots. “Automation has always been a buzz word within manufacturing, and yet at a baseline we always want our customers to really ask themselves, ‘Why do I want to automate?’ and ‘What am I looking to achieve by automating?’
Once these questions are understood, there is an entire network of distributors and system integrators who can help customers better understand their current manufacturing processes, associated automation requirements and then potential solutions. This is important to know, especially if a company does not have the experience or internal support to design and implement an automation program themselves.”
For those looking to dip their toes in the water—so to speak—integrators, Epson and most other robotic manufacturers offer solutions that are not only affordable but are also easy to implement with fully integrated peripheral solutions such as vision and flexible feeding.
