Universal Robots - Cobots Offer Game Changing Benefits
The UR Cobots are packed with truly amazing benefits.
Universal Robots has reinvented industrial robotics with lightweight, flexible robot arms called Cobots or collaborative robots. Tasks previously thought impossible to automate due to cost and complexity, are now achievable with the user-friendly robots.
Patented technology lets operators with no programming experience quickly set up and operate the UR cobots with intuitive, 3D visualization. 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 the Cobot set-up, reducing typical robotic deployment measured in weeks to a matter of hours. The average set-up time reported by their customers is only half a day. The out-of-box experience for an untrained operator to unpack the cobot, mount it, and program the first simple task is typically less than an hour.
Flexible deployment of Cobots:
Don’t be limited by dedicated robotics. Universal Robots are lightweight, space-saving, and easy to re-deploy to multiple applications without changing your production layout. Moving the cobot to new processes is fast and easy, giving you the agility to automate almost any manual task, including those with small batches or fast change-overs. The cobot is able to re-use programs for recurrent tasks.
Collaborative and safe Cobots:
Now you can replace human operators in dirty, dangerous, and dull jobs to reduce repetitive strain and accidental injuries. Eighty percent of the thousands of UR robots worldwide operate with no safety guarding (after risk assessment), right beside human operators. The safety system of the robots is approved and certified by TÜV (The German Technical Inspection Association).
Fastest payback in the robot industry:
Universal Robots gives companies access to all the benefits of advanced robotic automation, with none of the extra costs associated with traditional robot programming, set-up, and dedicated, shielded work cells. This makes robotic automation affordable for SMEs, small-batch production runs, and other setups where it would otherwise be too expensive. Their data shows that, on average across processes, UR's cobots pay for themselves in 10.5 months.
