Denso’s range of four-axis Scara and five- and six-axis articulated robots features a maximum moment of inertia, permitting flexibility in the choice of end effectors for a variety of applications. Metalworking applications include cutting, grinding, and polishing, turning, machining, machine tending, material handling, material removal, workholding and workhandling.
The robots’ compact design, along with concealed electrical wiring and air lines, reduces interference with surrounding equipment and facilitates integration. When used for tending a CNC machine, the robots can often be mounted inside the machining center itself, saving floor space.
The robots have reaches from 350 to 1,300 mm and can handle payloads as heavy as 20 kg. Repeatability is to within ±0.015 mm. Standard, dust- and mistproof (IP65) and cleanroom (Class 10 and Class 100) models are available.
