Aug. 27, 2017 – Since 1967, Denso Robotics has been providing robotics to global industries.

In the years that followed, the company was credited with numerous innovations, it says, from the 4- and 6-axis mid-sized robots of the 1980s and advanced controllers of the 1990s, up to the HS, HM and VS-series robots of the early 2000s. Since then, further development led to designs such as the RC7M and RC8 controllers, as well as the latest advanced VS-series pharmaceutical robots.

Denso offers a range of high-speed 4-axis SCARA and 5- and 6-axis articulated industrial robots for payloads up to 20 kg. Standard, dust- and mistproof, dust- and waterproof, cleanroom and aseptic models are available to accommodate different applications. In addition to industrial robot arms, Denso also offers programming software, controllers and teaching pendants.

The manufacturer itself is a large user of small assembly robots, from four-axis SCARA robots to five- and six-axis articulated units. More than 18,000 Denso small industrial robots are employed in the company’s own manufacturing facilities, and more than 77,000 additional small industrial robots are used by other companies worldwide.
