New Free DENSO Guide to Selecting Robots for Drug Discovery and Testing
DENSO Robotics Posted 02/02/2011DENSO Robotics announced publication of a new free guide, “Selecting Robots for Use in Drug Discovery and Testing: What Are the Essential Things to Know?”
“Robots have played a central role in drug discovery and testing for many years now,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Sales California. “The individuals at pharmaceutical companies who are involved in selecting robots are not usually engineers, however, so they need to become familiar with certain basic concepts in robot technology.”
The new eight page guide answers this need by examining key relevant aspects of Cartesian, four-axis SCARA and six-axis articulated robots. The guide is available as a free download from the DENSO Robotics Web site at www.densorobotics.com/pdf/drugdiscoveryandtesting (377 KB).
DENSO is the world’s largest user of small assembly robots, with more than 16,000 DENSO robots designed and used in its own manufacturing facilities. More than 60,000 DENSO robots are used in other companies worldwide. DENSO Robotics offers a complete line of robots, controllers and software covering a wide range of applications.
