The EPX2050 robot from Motoman is said to provide versatility and superior performance in standard industrial, automotive and aerospace coating and dispensing applications. The six-axis unit can paint contoured parts such as vehicle body panels and plastic components, agricultural equipment and aerospace parts. It features a Factory Mutual (FM) Class 1, Div. 1 intrinsically safe (explosion-proof) rating for use in hazardous environments, can handle a 15-kg (33-lb) payload, and has a 2-m (80.9-inch) reach with ±0.5 mm (±0.02 inch) repeatability. The compact, flexible robot can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted to provide layout flexibility and is available with a hollow wrist that facilitates mounting of spray equipment and avoids interference between hoses and parts/fixtures.
