DENSO Compact, High-Speed Assembly Robots

DENSO Robotics

Why do DENSO robots have such a low cost of ownership?
—Because DENSO’s own manufacturing needs demand it.

DENSO, a pioneer and industry leader in robot development since the 1960s, is the world’s largest manufacturer of small assembly robots, with an installed base of more than 94,000 units.

Unlike most other robot manufacturers, however, DENSO’s primary business is not manufacturing robots, but automotive parts.

In fact, DENSO is a leading global supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components, employing more than 17,000 of its own robots in its manufacturing facilities.

And that’s exactly why DENSO 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.

  • Low maintenance
    DENSO robots are designed to run trouble-free with only minimal scheduled maintenance.This results in significant savings in maintenance costs as well as the cost of production downtime due to overly frequent or lengthy maintenance procedures.
  • Ease of integration
    DENSO’s compact robot design saves valuable factory floor space and reduces integration time and costs. Internally routed electrical wires and air lines prevent interference with other equipment, eliminating the cost of replacement due to unnecessary wear and tear.
  • Ease of setup, programming and networking
    DENSO robot controllers come preconfigured, substantially cutting down on setup and development time. Programming is made quick and easy by DENSO’s offline programming software, which includes 3-D simulation as standard. And networking is only a matter of entering an IP address.
  • Low energy consumption
    DENSO’s lightweight robot arms and energy-efficient motors result in lower energy consumption and therefore lower operating costs.
  • High reliability
    DENSO’s use of harmonic-drive motors allows its robots to maintain their high speeds in continuous two- and three-shift duty, year after year, essential to maximizing productivity.In addition, the motors’ high maximum moment of inertia means the robots can handle higher payloads with less strain, reducing wear and thus minimizing the risk of downtime due to repair.
  • Long working life
    Many robot manufacturers introduce new models every few years and quickly stop supporting older models, which then become obsolete and need to be replaced. In contrast, DENSO offers support and upgrades for up to 10 years after a robot model has been discontinued. This eliminates the need for unnecessarily premature equipment replacement, greatly reducing capital investment  costs.
