How do you make your production environments more efficient and sustainable?

5 October 2022

The sustainability of our energy is gaining momentum, while technological tools such as robots are being used more and more. What are the possibilities and how sustainable is an EPSON robot now?

EPSON Sustainability

The lights and heating may be off

The latest generation of EPSON robots significantly increases production speed. Robots are designed to work 24/7 non-stop for years. They can work autonomously, in the dark and in a wide range of temperature conditions. So you can already make considerable savings on lighting and heating.

Little or no waste

Robots can perform continuous quality checks, so that action can still be taken within the production process if something is likely to go wrong. This eliminates the need to reject and throw away products at the end of the production process.

Machine learning combined with a sustainable vision

HUPICO deliberately distributes EPSON robots because of their good weight-payload distribution. As a result, the robots not only work more efficiently, they also consume a lot less energy.

"Artificial intelligence will offer many opportunities in terms of sustainability and energy saving in the near future. Which movement of the robot is unnecessary? Which action can be done more efficiently without loss of function?" - Johan Paul

In addition, EPSON presented its new sustainability plan last year, referring to the social issues and trends being followed. In the coming years, EPSON is strongly committed to energy-saving equipment and facilities, to removing greenhouse gases from the production process and towards carbon-free logistics.
