November 9, 2012 - ISO 3 (class 10) cleanroom versions of VS-Series 6-axis articulated robots offer cycle times from 0.37–0.33 sec and repeatability from ±0.03 to ±0.02 mm. Able to be mounted on floor, ceiling, or wall without any special hardware, these ANSI and CE safety devices offer reaches from 500–900 mm and payload capacities from 4–7 kg. Internal wiring option allows connection of Gigabit Ethernet devices and servo grippers directly to robot flange, and ultraslim arms facilitate integration.

World’s fastest, most precise in their class

LONG BEACH, Calif. — DENSO announced new ISO 3 (class 10) cleanroom versions of its VS-Series six-axis articulated robots, adding to its previously released ISO 5 (class 100) versions. The VS-Series robots offer the world’s highest speed and precision in their class, with cycle times from 0.37 to 0.33 sec. and repeatability from ±0.03 to ±0.02 mm. Reaches are from 500 to 900 mm and payload capacities from 4 to 7 kg.

The VS robots are also extremely flexible, with an even more compact design than previous models, including ultraslim arms to facilitate integration and a new optional bottom-side cable connection that saves valuable floor space. The robots can be mounted on the floor, ceiling or wall with no special hardware needed.

A new internal wiring option allows connection of Gigabit Ethernet devices and servo grippers directly to the robot flange, preventing cables from becoming tangled or interfering with peripheral equipment. ANSI and CE safety compliance allows global deployment. 

Typical cleanroom applications include assembly, dispensing, encapsulating and potting, insertion, inspection, laser welding, machine tending, material handling, nut driving, packaging, pick and place, press fitting, screw driving, soldering, test handling and ultrasonic welding.

Industries include aerospace, alternative energy, appliances, automotive, biomedical, chemicals, consumer products, disk drives, electronics, general manufacturing, injection molding, life sciences, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, plastics and semiconductors.

“Our VS-Series robots continue to set the performance standard for their class,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Sales California. “Now the new ISO 3 cleanroom models open up an even wider range of applications.”

More information about the new VS-Series cleanroom robots is available on the DENSO Robotics website at http://densorobotics.com/products-vs-6axis-new.php.

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 offers a wide range of high-speed, four-, five- and six-axis industrial robots, 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, dust- and mistproof, dust- and waterproof, cleanroom and aseptic models are available. Programming software, controllers and teaching pendants are also offered. 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.
