“It’s a paradigm shift in the way robots are viewed,” said Stewart McMillan, CEO of firehose maker Task Force Tips in Indiana, as he installed three Universal Robots.
He witnessed how his machinist quickly developed a vision-guided application working in tandem with UR robots. He saw product quality “go to a whole other level” while the company increased output and reallocated employees to more rewarding tasks.
Bottom line: ROI of just 34 days.
As the pioneer of collaborative robots, he wanted to bring this experience to all manufacturers still regarding robotics as costly and complex. That’s why he is now launching Universal Robots+, an online showroom of verified application solutions (grippers, software, accessories and other peripherals) enabling consumers to hit the ground running when installing their next application.
