Estun (埃斯顿, 002747.SZ), China’s leading industrial automation and robot developer, has launched its latest generation of high-speed, high-precision and small-payload multi-joint robot series.

The series, comprising products coded ER12B-1512, ER20B-1760, ER35B-1810, ER30B-1810-F and ER20B/10–2010-HI, are widely applied in scenarios ranging from pressing to dispensing, from polishing to tranfering, and from sorting to welding.

These new additions to Estun’s robot family come with an increase of 20% in operational speed and a repeat positioning accuracy of ±0.03mm.

With brand new sealing technology, the robotic arm’s level of protection at its wrist has been updated to IP67, making it suited to multiple complex working conditions.

IP67 is a key metric meassuring a product’s waterproofness.

Another major upgrade has been the width of the robot’s wrist, which falls by 7% from the previous model, a design that is fit for operation within a tight space.

The contraptions also support internal cable routing, to allow for a higher degree of convenience for equipment integration as well as enhance engineering safety.

Their appearance has become more compact, thanks to vertical or horizontal mode of installation, which reduces the size by 30%. Meanwhile, with a slimmer shape comes smaller energy consumption, as the high-performance servo system can conserve energy by 10–20%, Estun said.

Users can monitor real-time data generated by the new Estun robots involving run time, payload duration, standby duration, electricity/gas consumption and warning via Estun’s E-noesis platform to learn about the robot’s status.

These figures will also help quantify the output-input ratio and optimize production processes, lending support to further decision-making on equipment investment.

The robots operate under 24×7 surveillance of a built-in maintenance system, which can analyze glitches to ensure well-managed digitalized production.

To date, Estun has developed three core businesses spanning industrial automation, industrial robotics and industrial digitalization.

The company’s industrial robot arm claims to have achieved breakneck growth on the back of self-developed core components.

Its products mainly cover six-axis robot with payloads from 3 to 600 kilograms, extending across more than 54 specs and types. Estun has delivered them to major clients from new energy, welding, metal processing, 3C, engineering machinery, aerospace and aviation segments and has carved out a sizeable market share, the company noted.

As of press time, Estun stocks listed on China’s A-share market were trading at 25.87 yuan (US$3.78) apiece, down from the intraday high of 26.27 yuan. Its market value stood at close to 22.85 billion yuan.
