‘The DENSO Difference’: Small Assembly Robots, Unbeatable Value
DENSO Robotics Posted 11/03/2015
New Brochure Highlights the Win-Win Economics of DENSO Robots
LONG BEACH, Calif. — DENSO Robotics, a global supplier of advanced robotic technology, knows firsthand what customers want in their assembly robots. Speed, accuracy, ease of operation, high reliability, low maintenance, durability and energy efficiency are all part what makes “The DENSO Difference” – small industrial robots of the highest quality with the lowest total cost of ownership.
“DENSO’s primary business is manufacturing automotive parts, not robots,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Products & Services Americas, Inc. “And that’s why our robots are built the way they are. Because in order to succeed in the fiercely competitive automotive sector, DENSO requires its robots to deliver not only the highest levels of productivity, but also the lowest cost of ownership.”
The total cost of owning an assembly robot begins with the purchase of the complete unit, hardware and software included. Customers get the best value when integrating the robot into their operation and ensuring the equipment meets their duty-cycle needs. In addition, getting support for the model after it has been discontinued doesn’t involve opening their wallets again and again.
“When you do the math, owners of DENSO robots come out ahead every time,” Cavallo said. “We’re talking about added costs our customers don’t incur. That’s ‘The DENSO Difference’.”
