Universal Robots


Universal Robots:
The world’s #1 collaborative robot

Traditionally, robots were suited to high- speed, low-variability tasks, with fixed guarding and custom integration. The emergence of collaborative robots – or cobots – changed this. The cobot pioneer, Universal Robots, has lowered the automation barrier tremendously by offering flexible, user-friendly robot arms that can easily be moved between tasks in medical device manufacturing, offering significant product optimization and increase in product quality.

With traditional robots, the capital costs for the robots themselves account for only 25 to 30 percent of the total system costs. The remaining costs are associated with robot programming, setup, and dedicated, shielded work cells. The “out of box experience” with Universal Robots collaborative robot arms is typically less than an hour. That’s the time it takes to unpack the robot, mount it, and program the first simple task through an intuitive touchscreen user interface. Or, by simply grabbing the robot arm, showing it the desired path of movement.

With more than 10,000 cobots installed worldwide, Universal Robots is the unrivaled market leader of the collaborative robotics industry and continue to push the envelope for new human-robot interaction.

Since the UR cobots can be set up quickly and operate with no safety fencing alongside employees, the overall cost of deployment is significantly reduced. According to the old rule of thumb, the cost of a robot would be equivalent to one worker’s two-year salary. But collaborative robots are closer to one fourth of that price.

Universal Robots has reinvented industrial robotics with the lightweight and flexible UR robot arms. The Danish- designed robots automate production in all industries – even in SMBs that regard automation as costly, cumbersome, and difficult to integrate. The robots can work alongside personnel and are easily moved around production sites to complete even the most detailed tasks. Programming is intuitive, eliminating the need for skilled programmers; simply grab the robot arm to show it the desired movement, or use the touch screen. The robots are sold in over 50 countries worldwide, typical ROI is 3 – 8 months.
