DENSO Robotics: High-speed 4-axis robot

DENSO Robotics announced the introduction of its latest HSR four-axis SCARA robot, which uses advanced vibration control, a newly designed, highly rigid lightweight arm, and improved heat dissipation in the base unit to achieve new levels of continuous high-speed performance and repeatability.

Reduced shaft whip and settling time, along with a lighter-weight arm and an optimized arm structure, make the HSR more efficient than previous models, enabling it to accelerate faster, run continuously at its highest rated speed and stop more precisely.

Standard cycle time (with a 2 kg weight) of the HSR robot is from 0.28 to 0.31 sec. and repeatability is from ±0.01 to ±0.12 mm. Maximum payload capacity is 8 kg, with available reaches of 480, 550 and 650 mm.

The HSR robot can be easily switched between floor- and ceiling-mount simply by making a change in the configuration file of the controller, with no additional hardware necessary.

DENSO’s compact, space-saving design facilitates integration, while a high maximum moment of inertia allows a wide variety of end effectors and applications. Electrical wiring and air piping are internally embedded in the robot arm, preventing interference with peripherals. ANSI and CE compliance enables global deployment.

Applications include high-speed, high-precision pick and place in assembly processes, as well as packaging processes in the food, medical device, pharmaceutical and cosmetics sectors.
