Details DENSO 4-Axis SCARA and 6-Axis Articulated Robots

LONG BEACH, Calif.--DENSO Robotics announced a new 2013 product catalog featuring the company's lineup of compact, high-speed industrial robot arms. Included are descriptions, specifications and technical drawings of the latest DENSO four-axis SCARA and five- and six-axis articulated robots, as well as controllers, teach pendants and programming software.


The 48-page publication, which features convenient divider tabs that let readers quickly find the specific information they are looking for, can be viewed online in a digital edition or downloaded as a PDF at www.densorobotics.com/catalog.

"We offer the industry's widest range of small industrial robots," said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Products & Services Americas, Inc. "Our catalog makes all our product information available to customers in one convenient place."

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 robots are available 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 (IP40), dust- and mistproof (IP65), dust- and splashproof (IP67), cleanroom (ISO 3, 4 and 5) and aseptic (H2O2-resistant) models are available. 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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
