DENSO announced that it has increased the maximum payload capacity of its VS-Series 6-axis articulated robots by 40 percent, from 5 kg to 7 kg. The new increase, which gives the compact VS-Series robots the highest payload capacity in their class, allows them to handle a significantly wider range of applications than previously.
The VS-Series robots are available in reaches from 650 to 850 mm, with cycle times from 0.49 to 0.59 seconds and repeatability from ±0.020 to ±0.030 mm. ANSI and CE compliance allows global deployment.
“Our VS-Series robots have been a mainstay in the industry for many years,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Sales California. “Now with their higher payload capacity, they offer our customers even greater flexibility in meeting their automation challenges.”
