DENSO Introduces New VS-Series 6-Axis Cleanroom Robots

World's fastest, most precise in their class

05/24/2012


LONG BEACH, Calif. - DENSO announced the introduction of ISO 5 (class 100) cleanroom versions of its new VS-Series six-axis articulated robots. The new VS-Series robots offer the world's highest speed and precision in their class, with cycle times from 0.37 to 0.33 sec. and repeatability from ±0.03 to ±0.02 mm. Reaches are from 500 to 900 mm and payload capacities from 4 to 7 kg.

The new VS robots are also extremely flexible, with an even more compact design than previous models, including ultraslim arms to facilitate integration and a new optional bottom-side cable connection that saves valuable floor space. The robots can be mounted on the floor, ceiling or wall with no special hardware needed.

A new internal wiring option allows connection of Gigabit Ethernet devices and servo grippers directly to the robot flange, preventing cables from becoming tangled or interfering with peripheral equipment. ANSI and CE safety compliance allows global deployment.

Typical cleanroom applications include assembly, dispensing, encapsulating and potting, insertion, inspection, laser welding, machine tending, material handling, nut driving, packaging, pick and place, press fitting, screw driving, soldering, test handling and ultrasonic welding.

Industries include aerospace, alternative energy, appliances, automotive, biomedical, chemicals, consumer products, disk drives, electronics, general manufacturing, injection molding, life sciences, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, plastics and semiconductors.

"Our new VS-Series robots have received a tremendous reception from the marketplace," said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Sales California. "The new cleanroom models will let us extend the benefits of these robots into many new application areas."

More information about the new VS-Series cleanroom robots is available on the DENSO Robotics website at www.densorobotics.com/products-vs-6axis-new.php.

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 offers a 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. DENSO's compact, space-saving design facilitates integration, while a high maximum moment of inertia allows a wide variety of end effectors and applications. Standard, dust- and mistproof, dust- and waterproof, cleanroom and aseptic models are available. Programming software, controllers and teaching pendants are also offered. ANSI and CE compliance enables global deployment. UL-listed models are available for the U.S. and Canada. For more information, visit www.densorobotics.com.
