As one of the world's largest automotive parts manufacturers, DENSO has been a leader and pioneer in manufacturing automation, including the design and manufacturing of industrial robot arms, since the 1960s. DENSO is also the world's largest user of small assembly robots, from four-axis SCARA robots to five- and six-axis articulated robots. More than 17,000 DENSO small industrial robots are employed in the company's own manufacturing facilities, and more than 77,000 additional DENSO small industrial robots are used by other companies worldwide.
A Commitment to Quality
Since DENSO began in 1949, it has been committed to producing the highest and most consistent quality possible. This philosophy has made DENSO the company it is today, employing over 140,000 people in 38 countries and regions, with over $39 billion in sales.
DENSO's commitment to building quality products has constantly driven the company to seek out new advances in technology. When industrial robot arms first appeared in the early 1960s, DENSO further developed the technology and applied it to its manufacturing processes.
DENSO Robotics offers a wide range of high-speed, high-precision 4-axis SCARA and 5- and 6-axis articulated industrial robots, for payloads up to 20 kg. Standard, dust- and mistproof, dust- and waterproof, cleanroom and aseptic models are available to accommodate many different applications. In addition to industrial robot arms, DENSO also offers easy-to-use programming software, controllers and teaching pendants.
