Booth #4139 - DENSO's newest 6 axis robot, Cobotta, we have targeted the marketing of small, delicate parts handling, with the selection of both an industrial mode of operation, as well as, a collaborative mode of operation.

Talking ATX West with Denso Robotics

Contributed by | Denso Robotics

Tell us about your company. 

As one of the world's largest automotive parts manufacturers, DENSO has been a leader and pioneer in manufacturing automation, including the design and manufacturing of industrial robot arms, since the 1960s. DENSO is also the world's largest user of small assembly robots, from four-axis SCARA robots to five- and six-axis articulated robots. More than 20,000 DENSO small industrial robots are employed in the company's own manufacturing facilities, and more than 77,000 additional DENSO small industrial robots are used by other companies worldwide. 


Your company will be exhibiting at ATX & Design & Manufacturing West, what is it that makes this an important event for your company? 

ATX & Design & Manufacturing West is the premier event for Southern CA bringing manufacturers from all over the West coast, which gives DENSO Robotics the opportunity to highlight the quality and longevity of our products and how we can solve many of the manufacturing concerns our customers routinely experience.  

Highlight 2 or 3 products you will be showcasing at the event?

With the release of DENSO's newest 6 axis robot, Cobotta, we have targeted the marketing of small, delicate parts handling, with the selection of both an industrial mode of operation, as well as, a collaborative mode of operation.

With options of integrated gripper, integrated vision, integrated suction and several others, Cobotta can be deployed in a fraction of the time it takes to deploy standard robot arms. 


ATX & Design & Manufacturing West has many educational sessions, forums & Demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?

DENSO Robotics' in-booth demos will include: 
Automation Training Cell - gives hands-on instruction in integrating, programming and operating industrial robot work cells. 
Ultraclean - VS-S2 six-axis robot meets the strict hygienic requirements of the pharmaceutical, medical and life sciences industries. 
Viper MBC Screw Driving Robot by Visumatic - uses DENSO 4 axis SCARA robot for seamless integration by machine builders. 


The factory floor is undertaking rapid advancements, be it automation, robotics, machine vision or data.  The Automation Technology is a huge part for many manufacturers, give us an idea on how your company and product is being utilized now in the smart factory. 

As the largest user of small assembly robots globally DENSO has been at the forefront in the advanced use of information networks linking our manufacturing plants and our OE customers. As we move into the future with Industry 4.0 DENSO is already producing the infrastructure to power our factories in this area, its an exciting time in automation. 


Give us your thoughts on what the future holds for manufacturers and automation technology 

The new tools being created will allow todays manufacturers to remove many of the limitations we had been encumbered with in the past and allow us to focus on producing much higher levels of creativity, productivity and product satisfaction in our products.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
