Epson Robots today announced its new no-code programming language, Epson RC+ Express. Epson said the visual-based teaching environment offers faster programming of its SCARA robots for users who have little-to-no programming experience.

Developed for Epson T-Series All-in-One and LS-B Series SCARA robots, Epson RC+ Express features a visual-based teaching environment that integrates a block-style format. Epson said it includes ready-to-use templates that allow users to create common pick-and-place, palletizing and depalletizing applications.

Epson said there are no recurring licenses fees for the software. According to the company, Epson RC+ Express allow users to learn and manage key functions like jogging, gripper control and motion. The software is equipped with Epson proprietary Focus Assist technology with auto generated fields for quicker setup, and a built-in 3D simulator to visualize and fine-tune applications.

Epson said the software is compatible with Windows OS tablets and laptops.

“Epson is overcoming automation barriers by eliminating the perceived difficulty of programming a robot,” said Rick Brookshire, director of product management and product development, Epson Robots. “Our existing Epson RC+ software is widely known for its ease of use and power. The new Epson RC+ Express delivers the next level of simplicity by allowing new robotics users to build simple applications quicker and easier than ever before – without needing to learn any programming language.”
