Get a Collaborative Edge and Triple Production with Cobots


With a multitude of possible uses, cobots (collaborative robots that work along side humans) bring efficiency and precision to every aspect of production at an affordable cost, making them a worthy investment for companies of any size and industry for continued growth and expansion. Universal Robots' e-Series Cobots can automate a mundane task, take over a dangerous one, or simple change the way your employees work.

Meet the e-Series

Take flexibility, then add intelligence, endurance, and outstanding precision and you have a UR robot arm. The UR family has four members: The UR3e, the UR5e, the UR10e, and the UR16e - each named after their payload capacity in kilograms and each with exceptional collaborative abilities.

Industry

 



Easy Programing


Universal Robots’ patented technology lets operators with no programming experience quickly set up and operate our cobots. With intuitive, 3D visualization you simply move the robot arm to desired waypoints or touch the arrow keys on the easy-to-use touchscreen tablet.

Fast Set Up

Universal Robots has revolutionized cobot set-up, reducing deployment time from weeks to hours. The average set-up time reported by customers is only half a day. The experience for an untrained operator to unpack the robot, mount it, and program the first simple task is typically less than an hour.



Flexible Automation


Don’t be limited by traditional robots that can only do one thing. Universal Robots are lightweight, space-saving, and easy to re-deploy to multiple applications without changing your production layout. Moving the cobot to a new process is fast and easy, giving you the agility to automate even small batch runs and frequent line change-overs.

Collaborative and Safe

Give dirty, dangerous, and dull jobs to cobots to reduce repetitive strain and accidental injuries to humans. 80% of the thousands of our robots worldwide operate with no safety guarding (after risk assessment). The safety system in our robots is approved and certified by TÜV (The German Technical Inspection Association).



COLLABORATIVE ROBOT APPLICATIONS


Universal Robots collaborative robot arms can be adjusted and programmed to add value to any environment by taking over repetitive, high-precision tasks. From assembly to painting, from palletizing to screw-driving, from packaging to polishing, from injection molding to welding, or whatever processing task you can think of, our family of robot arms can help you achieve greater productivity to compete in a global market.


Featured Case Studies


Triple Production

Universal Robots’ UR10 handles the “harvesting” - loading and unloading plates in 3D printers - at Voodoo Manufacturing. Deploying the cobot has tripled production output and will help the Brooklyn startup cut costs by 90 percent. The company chose the UR robot due to its quick integration with peripheral systems enabled through the UR+ platform.

CNC / Machine Tending

Whippany Actuations Systems makes electro-mechanical actuation systems for the aerospace and defense industries. The company needed to increase production quickly, preferred to manufacture in-house, and looked for an alternative solution to sinking a large expenditure into a new CNC machine.

Harsh Environments

Aircraft Tooling, a Texas-based repair center for the aviation industry, was surprised to find that the collaborative robots from Universal Robots could withstand the high temperatures and harsh environment while performing metal powder and plasma spray processes. The cobots have now been in operation for three years without breakdown or service requirements.

Fast ROI

DCL Logistics needed a flexible automation system that would integrate with existing work cell setup and accurately handle the picking and packing of items into boxes in the company’s fulfillment center. The company deployed Universal Robots’ UR10e cobot and realized 500 percent efficiency increase, 50 percent labor savings, a three months ROI, and 100 percent order accuracy.

Flexible Implementation

Two Cobots from Universal robots - UR5 and UR10 - work at several CNC glass lathes. The Cobots tend the machine for up to 11 hours each day. If required, the company can flexibly implement the cobots at different glass lathes. Therefore, the company has developed a facility which allows them to switch the cobots between the different machines with no problems at all.
