Denso’s new ISO 3 (class 1) cleanroom versions of its VS-Series six-axis articulated robots, add to its previously released ISO 5 (class 100) versions. The VS-Series robots offer high speed and precision, 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 flexible, with a compact design that includes ultraslim arms to facilitate integration and a new optional bottom-side cable connection that saves 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.
