Voodoo Manufacturing triples 3D printing production with collaborative robots
Universal Robots’ UR10 handles the “harvesting” - loading and unloading plates in 3D printers - at Voodoo Manufacturing. Deploying the collaborative robot 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.
Flexible cobots - Pick & Place of highly sensitive glass tubes
The company wanted to make better use of their employees’ potential and aimed to optimize its production processes. This is why Hofmann Glastechnik GmbH started to automate repetitive, manual tasks. Now, the family business uses two collaborative robot arms from Universal Robots, automatically feeding highly sensitive glass tubes into a forming machine. As a result, the production process has been stabilized, the quality of the glass components has been improved significantly and the employees have been effectively relieved from monotonous tasks.
Universal Robots solves production challenges in Creating Revolutions’ assembly line
The Miami startup Creating Revolutions was experiencing double-digit product reject rates in the assembly of their hospitality service pager. The UR3 cobot now handles soldering, drilling, silicone dispensing and light assembly while being controlled and monitored in a cloud-connected system, reducing rejects to near zero while increasing production efficiency almost five-fold.
UR10 at the center of the 4.0 industrialization process, reducing changeovers by 50%
The multinational Continental is a good example of the transition taking place in the industry; as a leading company in the automotive sector, Continental is by far the most robotized Spanish manufacturer in the business and the first to pioneer the move towards industry 4.0. In 2016, the company decided to acquire several UR10 cobots to automate the manufacture and handling of PCB boards, bringing down changeover times by 50%, from 40 to 20 minutes when compared to performing the task manually.
