Denso Robotics has opened its latest and “most modern” sales, application and training center, located 40 minutes northeast of Cincinnati.

The Denso Robotics sales, application and training Center in West Chester, Ohio provides production operators, programmers and maintenance personnel training on the finer points of today’s cutting edge robotic arms, controllers and applications.

Staffed with experts in their field, the center is designed to serve Denso Robotics’ customers in the Midwest, East Coast and Southern regions of the country. 

It operates in conjunction with two similar Denso Robotics centers in Long Beach, California and Maryville, Tennessee.

Training is designed to cover every base, including basic and advanced robot programming, operation, maintenance and the ORiN programming language.

Additional custom courses are offered to fit customers’ special production and manufacturing needs.

All classrooms are equipped to allow education on a highly professional level, says Denso. Students have access to all the latest Denso controllers, vision hardware, wireless infrastructure and work stations, along with dedicated, hands-on robots.

Peter Cavallo, manager, robotics sales department, says: “Everything at the Ohio facility is geared to maximizing the usefulness of Denso robot arms in multiple industries.

“The center deliberately keeps class sizes small, with the ideal teacher-to-student ratio. The result is a deeper level of learning and product understanding.”

Students can enhance the learning experience by participating in online video training and webcasts.

Customer Support classes are also available through the facility’s website, complete with everything from video content, FAQ pages and product information to white papers and regional access to customer service, repair and application support resources.

This most recent support center is yet another indication of Denso Robotics’ commitment to the advancement of robotic automation systems, both in the United States and around the world.

Denso claims to be the world’s largest manufacturer – and user – of small assembly robots, employing over 18,000 of its robots in its own facilities. Over 77,000 additional Denso robots are used by other companies worldwide.

The company is this year celebrating 50 years since its establishment in 1967, starting with manufacturing a range of software and industrial robots that would forever change the face of automation.

By 1970, manufacturing and implementation of their first aluminium die-casting robot was well under way.

In the years that followed, Denso was credited with a long line of innovations, from the 4- and 6-axis mid-sized robots of the 1980s and advanced controllers of the 90s, up to the HS, HM and VS-series robots of the early 2000s.

Since then, further development led to breakthrough designs such as the RC7M and RC8 controllers, as well as the latest advanced VS-series pharmaceutical robots.

Today, Denso provides robotics to global industries, Denso itself is the world’s largest user of small assembly robots, from four-axis SCARA robots to five- and six-axis articulated units.

Denso Robotics currently 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.
