Universal Robots (Boston, MA) robots deliver all advantages of advanced robotic automation with none of the added costs usually associated with robot programming, set-up and shielded work cells. Unlike traditional robots that stay hardwired in a cage, the UR robots can be moved around, automating high mix/low volume production runs. Innovative force-sensing technology makes the robot stops when encountering an employee, eliminating the need for safety guarding in most scenarios.
The “out-of-box experience” with a collaborative UR robot is typically less than an hour. Programming is intuitive; users simply grab the robot arm to teach the desired movement, or use the touch screen. Product portfolio includes the UR3, UR5 and UR10 robot arms named after their payloads in kilos; they all feature 0.1 mm repeatability and span in reach from 19.7” in to 51.2”.
