Denso Robotics


 Some robots don’t look like “robots” at all.  Sometimes these are called Cartesian Systems, with X-Y-Z, or X-Y-Z-Theta axes of motion.  Other times they are referred as Gantries, with similar layouts.


Benefits include

  • Low-risk, field-proven designs
  • Standardized components
  • Pre-engineered: no custom engineering costs
  • Capable of long reach in a compact design



Festo’s Cartesian systems are a part of their “Handling Systems” group.  Their wide variety of belt-driven and ball screw driven actuators can be configured in almost limitless permutations – with each unique system available as a single part number and with a lead time of only a few weeks!

Denso’s XR-Series is a four-axis, compact gantry robot.  It includes a ceiling-mounted SCARA robot, combined with a long-stroke Cartesian axis.  In many applications, these can be used without an additional conveyor, saving up to 20% in capital-equipment costs. ANSI and CE compliance allows global deployment.ArcWorld
