LONG BEACH, Calif. — DENSO Robotics has announced a new product catalog featuring the company’s lineup of small assembly robots, with reaches from 350 to 1,300 mm, payload capacities up to 20 kg and repeatability to within ±0.015 mm.
“We’re proud to offer the industry’s widest range of small industrial robot arms,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Products & Services Americas, Inc. “Our new catalog consolidates information about all our products in a single place and makes it easily accessible.”
The 52-page publication, which is available as an interactive online version or download at www.densorobotics.com/catalog, offers detailed descriptions, specifications and technical drawings of each of DENSO’s four-axis SCARA and five- and six-axis articulated robots, including its latest VS-Series pharmaceutical cleanroom model.
Also covered are DENSO robot controllers, which feature a cooperative robot motion function that allows precise motion coordination of a master robot and up to three slave robots.
DENSO is the world’s largest manufacturer — and user — of small assembly robots, employing over 17,000 of its robots in its own facilities. Over 77,000 additional DENSO robots are used by other companies worldwide.
The compact, high-speed robots are used in traditional manufacturing sectors, as well as in advanced-technology applications in the medical, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.
