DENSO Robotics Opens New Training Center in U.S. Midwest

New facility offers comprehensive training in state-of-the-art setting

LONG BEACH, Calif., March 25, 2015 -- DENSO Robotics has opened its new Main Training Center in Dayton, Ohio. The full-service facility brings the total number of DENSO Robotics training centers in the U.S. to three, adding to the company's West Coast Training Center in Long Beach and its Maintenance Training Center in Maryville, Tenn.


"Expanding our customer support services is a core element of our business," said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Products & Services Americas Inc. "We strategically located our new training center in Ohio to better serve our growing customer base in the U.S. Midwest, East Coast and South."

The Main Training Center offers the company's full line of courses in a state-of-the-art classroom designed to provide customers with the highest level of support and product training for their DENSO Robotics systems. Basic and advanced robot programming, ORiN programming language, operation and application courses are taught by experienced instructors in a small group setting. Training on DENSO's new RC8 Controller, as well as existing equipment such as the RC7M Controller, is available.

The high-tech facility is equipped with vision hardware, infrastructure for wireless operations, and workstations with dedicated robots and controls to ensure customers get hands-on training specific to their operational needs. The center also offers online video training, including real-time classes via remote webcast. For more information, visit www.densorobotics.com/training.

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.
