No, never move a robot axis by hand unless the brake is first released (or your specific unit has no brake on the axis you’re concerned with).
Yes, accuracy is when you tell the robot to move from wherever it’s current position to a calculated/defined position within it’s range. This might be a vision calculated position, or one that is derived from some external source. Repeatability is when you have defined or “taught” 1 or more positions and you have the robot arm move to those positions. It will repeatedly move to those positions within the robot’s repeatability specification.
Refer to the manual XXX_inst-e.pdf for your robot model, Ch. 2.4. For example, for an HS-E model, see HSE_inst-e.pdf.
Included with every shipped robot are two CDs, one with a version of WinCAPS III and one with the owner’s manual set. Also available on our member site are the manuals for each robot, including legacy robots.
CAD data for all our robots can be downloaded from our member site. In the error-e.pdf manual, there is a list of all 4-digit error codes, along with possible causes and resolutions.
Standard repair lead time is six weeks if parts are in stock. Expedited repairs (whether onsite or at our Tennessee repair facility) are repairs or visits requested within two weeks. All repairs and services are subject to parts availability.
This depends on the severity of the crash. You might consider checking the CALSET of the robot first. If your model has brakes, release the brake of the suspect joint by using a full-size teach pendant and pressing ARM > SHIFT > MAINT > BRAKE, then carefully push the joint to its mechanical stop. (Depending on your robot model, you may need to use a jig to do this, as referred to in the CALSET procedure.) Next, go back to the ARM menu and check the angle of the joint; it should match the RANG data for that joint on the label at the base of the robot.
Yes, a DENSO Robot comes completely ready to use out of the box. There is no need to calibrate or define parameters.
DENSO Support and Repair will be closed from:
*We will be unable to accept any incoming repair shipments from December 24, 2014 to January 4, 2015.
Always ensure RANG values match on a robot arm and controller prior to performing a CALSET.
No, never unplug or plug a teach pendant with power on.
Yes, purchasing a UL or CSA model requires a Teach Pendant to meet the cUL/UL or CSA specifications.
