Toolbox Categories: Robotics, SCARA / 6 AXIS
DENSO has been a leader and pioneer in manufacturing automation, including the design and manufacturing of industrial robot arms, since the 1960s. DENSO Robotics offers a wide range of high-speed, high-precision 4-axis SCARA and 5- and 6-axis articulated industrial robots, for payloads up to 20 kg. Standard, dust- and mistproof, dust- and waterproof, cleanroom and aseptic models are available to accommodate many different applications. In addition to industrial robot arms, DENSO also offers easy-to-use programming software, controllers and teaching pendants.
Product Focus: HS Series SCARA Robot
The HS-Series compact, four-axis SCARA robots offer the highest speed and repeatability in their class. Although these small industrial robots have a compact, space-saving design, they have a large load-handling capability, with a maximum payload of 5 kg. In addition, their large, 0.1 kgm² maximum allowable moment of inertia enables a wide range of end effectors and applications.
Product Focus: HM Series SCARA Robot
The HM-Series four-axis SCARA robots offer outstanding speed and repeatability. Although these small industrial robots have a compact, space saving design, they can handle 20 kg payloads. In addition, their maximum allowable moment of inertia of 0.45 kgm² is six times larger than that of conventional robots, permitting a wide variety of applications.
Product Focus: XR Series Integrated Robot
The XR-Series four-axis, compact gantry robots feature a ceiling mounted, flexible SCARA robot combined with a long-stroke Cartesian robot. As a result of their highly efficient, integrated design, the XR-Series robots use up to 40% less valuable factory floor space than a conventional SCARA robot. In addition, they can operate in many applications without the need of a conveyor, saving up to 20% in capital-equipment costs. ANSI and CE compliance allows global deployment.
Product Focus: VP Series 6-axis Robot
The ultracompact VP-Series six-axis articulated robots offer the highest speed and repeatability in their class. Their small footprint of only 160 x 160 mm (200 mm dia. for the aseptic models) saves valuable facility space and makes integration easy, yet despite their size, they have a large payload capacity. In addition, their highly efficient motors use a maximum of only 80 W of power each, and all motors combined use a maximum of only 300 W, resulting in significant energy savings. The VP-Series robots are ANSI and CE compliant, making them suitable for global deployment.
Product Focus: VS Series 6-axis Robot
The VS-Series six-axis articulated robots combine high speed and repeatability with powerful load-handling capability. They have a 7 kg maximum payload capacity and a maximum allowable moment of inertia (0.295 kgm² at J4 and J5, and 0.045 kgm² at J6) that is 2.5 times greater than conventional robots. This enables flexible end-effector designs and a wide range of applications. In addition, the VS-Series footprint is only 200 x 200 mm, facilitating integration. The VS Series is ANSI and CE compliant, making it suitable for global deployment. UL-listed models are available for both the U.S. and Canada.
Product Focus: VM Series 6-axis Robot
The VM-Series six-axis articulated robots offer high speed and repeatability along with a large, 13-kg maximum payload capacity. In addition, their maximum allowable moment of inertia (0.36 kgm² at J4 and J5, and 0.064 kgm² at J6) is 2.5 times greater than conventional robots, allowing more flexibility in end-effector designs and a wider range of applications. A slim, 130-mm-wide arm and long, 1,000- to 1,300-mm reach make it possible for these robots to reach around tooling or into deep, narrow spaces, such as plastic injection molds, without interfering with peripheral equipment.
Product Focus: RC8 Robot Controller
The DENSO RC8 controller is 60 percent smaller and 45 percent lighter than the company’s previous model. It has a footprint of only 12 x 18 inches and a height of only 3.75 inches, saving valuable factory floor space and facilitating integration.
The powerful, high-speed RC8 controller can communicate with over 100 different types of devices using DENSO’s ORiN™ open-resource interface networking system. Its wide range of communications interfaces includes 100 Base-T Ethernet, mini/hand I/O, RS-232C and USB as standard, plus CC-Link, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, parallel discrete I/O, Profibus and Profinet as optional. The RC8 controller is compatible with DENSO’s wide range of high-speed, four-, five- and six-axis industrial robots, with payloads up to 20 kg, reaches from 350 to 1,300 mm and repeatability to within ±0.015 mm.
