Denso looks to be getting into the low cost industrial robotics market with a 7 axis (6+gripper) arm that they claim should be available for less than 2000 €. This product aims to give students a chance to get practical experience programming an industrial robot arm with a maximum payload of 150 grams.
On the software side it can work with Denso specific software that is used for larger arms such as WINCAPS III, b-CAP and ORiN2. It can also be used with LabView.
