SCARAFLEX at a glance

What is SCARAFLEX?

SCARAFLEX is primarily a soft and pressure sensitive safety skin for EPSON Scara robots. Soft, airtight sensor pads continuously monitor and reliably detect any deformation of the skin. In case of a collision the controller triggers a safe stop and the robot stops immediately. The working sequence of the robot will continue from exactly this point as soon as a person will manually confirm by pushing a reset button.

Where can I use it?

Whenever you use an EPSON Scara Robot you can use the SCARAFLEX safetyskin as well. Typical applications are press feeding or de-feeding, pick and place tasks, product handling for packaging processes or quality control with vision systems. There are no restrictions using the technical options EPSON Scara offers.

Installations beginning Q 04 / 2019.

Interested?
We will start to install the first SCARAFLEX customer applications in the fourth quarter of 2019 and are looking for partners to implement the new SCARAFLEX in different production processes – ideally bigger companies which want to create simplified and cheaper processes.

SCARAFLEX – more safety, more options


The new security application,
developed especially for Scara robots

Create fenceless and safe Scara applications due to the unique SCARAFLEX-System

Using SCARAFLEX your robot application can now work in different places

It is an “easy to use” system for your production

For EPSON T-series and LS-series / existing LS robots can be upgraded

Compliant with Cat 3 / PLe and SILCL 3

EASY installation within 30 minutes

To put it in one sentence: use the SCARAFLEX to create a safe and fenceless robot application.
With SCARAFLEX safetyskin you create and implement new automated handling processes where humans and machines can interact in a safe environment.

Optimal use of SCARAFLEX

Option 1

UPGRADE YOUR EXISTING EPSON SCARA

The SCARAFLEX-System is designed to retrofit with EPSON’s LS Scara series. Optimize your existing processes and remove the safety fence, the SCARAFLEX safetyskin offers you to rethink your automation processes. Safe floorspace, simplify your processes, add flexibility and mobility and upgrade your production.

Option 2

SAVE MONEY WITH SCARAFLEX 

There is no need to buy an expensive 6-axis robot when you can use an EPSON Scara for a fenceless robot application. Safe money, floorspace and engineering time to set up your safe system. You do not need any special training or skills to install and work with SCARAFLEX. A good idea for the next investment!

Exclusive cooperation with EPSON

How could you make excellent robots even better?

Add more flexibility – withthe new SCARAFLEX-System for EPSON Scara Robots. SCARAFLEX represents flexibility:

> create new production standards with fenceless robots
> save money by using one robot for different production processes
> upgrade existing EPSON LS robots to a new level 

Why did we develop SCARAFLEX? 

Working for almost a decade with EPSON as a Distributor, we built up expertise in hundreds of robot applications – and we did listen carefully to our customers voices. It is our mission to understand our customers needs and to create new solutions.

Why EPSON?

EPSON offers excellent robots at a very good price/performance ratio – the perfect basis to add the SCARAFLEX safetyskin for a fenceless robot application and simple handlings or pick & place processes.

In general

A fenceless robot application will hardly be a highspeed application. So why should you buy an expensive highspeed robot to make it go slow? EPSON offers first class “all in one” Scara robots which work with high precision at a reduced speed – the perfect basis for the new SCARAFLEX-SAFETYSKIN.
