DENSO announced that it has increased the maximum payload capacity of its VM Series six-axis articulated robots from 10 kg to 13 kg. Along with their new capacity, the robots offer reaches from 1,000 to 1,300 mm; standard cycle times of 0.89 to 0.95 sec.; and repeatability is from ±0.050 to ±0.070 mm.

The long, slim arms of the VM-Series robots allow them to reach easily around tooling or peripheral equipment and into deep, narrow spaces such as plastic injection molds, the company says. In addition, their high maximum allowable moment of inertia (0.36 kgm² at J4 and J5 and 0.064 kgm² at J6) is 2.5 times greater than conventional robots.

The robots are ANSI and CE compliant and can be mounted on the floor or overhead. Standard, dust- and mistproof and Class 100 cleanroom models are available.
