5- and 6-Axis Robots

Five and six axis articulated robots are more adaptable, and offer more flexibility than a SCARA. These robots also have outstanding speed and repeatability, compared to their SCARA counterparts. In the case of Denso’s VS-A series, cycle times for one reciprocating motion (up 25 mm, over 300 mm, down 25 mm, with a 1 kg payload) range from 0.33 s to 0.37 s. This represents the highest speed and precision, for their class, available in the world.

These robots are ideal for machine tending, knitting, packaging, inspection, and other applications where off-vertical material handling is needed. Articulated robots can handle payloads up to 20 kg, with a reach of up to 1,300 mm. Protection options include standard, dust- and mist-proof, Clean room, IP-67 waterproof, and aseptic. They can be mounted conventionally, upside down, or on the wall. ANSI and CE safety compliance allows global deployment


DENSO 5 & 6 Axis Robots

The DENSO lineup of five- and six-axis articulated robots offers an array of arm sizes in the VP, VS and VM Series. Their increased freedom of movement makes them suited to handle a much wider range of applications.

Main Features:
  • Cycle times from 0.31 sec to 0.99 sec
  • Repeatability from ±0.02 to ±0.07 mm
  • Maximum composite speed from 3,900 to 11,380 mm/sec
  • Reaches from 430 mm to 1,298 mm Payloads up to 13 kg
