Flexion N6 Compact 6-Axis Robots - 1000mm

The compact 6-Axis robot with a long reach and revolutionary design

Featuring the world’s first folding-arm design, the Flexion N6 6-Axis robot expands Epson’s award-winning Flexion N-Series lineup. With a unique ability to fold under itself, the robot reduces intermediate points and shortens cycle times. Ideal for vertical load/unload applications, this compact robot provides the ultimate in motion and workspace efficiency. Innovative tight-space motion capability ensures the robot’s arm extremities avoid obstacles, while Epson’s proprietary Residual Vibration Technology delivers outstanding speed, precision, acceleration/deceleration rates and more. The Flexion N6 offers 850 and 1,000 mm reach and a payload up to 6 kg.
