Slashes cycle times
25 January 2013
AA Robotics has introduced the VS Series 6 axis articulated robot range from Denso which is said to be capable of reducing robotic machine cycle times by one third. The robot can fit into less space, allowing machines a
Neil Billing of AA Robotics says: "One of the main problems with high speed 6 axis robots is the flexing of the wrist cables and the damage this can cause which results in down time. The VS can now be specified with Ethernet completely through to axis 6 and an additional 7th axis servo cable for a gripper, also through to axis 6." The VS series robots can move at speeds of 10,000mm/s carrying loads of up to 7kg and with an assembly accuracy of 0.02mm precision.
