A COLLABORATIVE ROBOT ARM FROM UNIVERSAL ROBOTS CAN REDUCE ASSEMBLY TIMES, INCREASE PRODUCTION SPEED, AND IMPROVE QUALITY
Produce repeatable, accurate assembly processes such as screw driving, nut driving, part fitting, and insertion while reducing repetitive workplace injuries. With the right adaptor mechanisms, UR collaborative robot arms can handle assembly of plastics, woods, metals, or other materials. If the assembly robot comes into contact with a person, our patented technology limits the forces at contact. UR robots can also be programmed to operate in reduced mode when a human enters the robot’s work area and resume full speed when the person leaves.
Universal Robots provides a future-proof platform for small businesses looking to optimize production. If your workflow changes, the assembly robotic arm can be deployed quickly and easily in new product lines due to its small size and lightweight design. Intuitive software allows even the most inexperienced user to quickly grasp the basics of programming and set waypoints by simply moving the robot into position.
For screw driving applications, the end joint on the UR3 offers infinite rotation. Built-in force/torque sensing in the e-Series robots allow it to be placed directly into a screw driving application without the need for a costly torque-controlled screw-driving tool. And UR robot arms’ repeatability of down to +/- 0.03 mm (30 microns) is perfect for automating quick-precision handling.
- Lower your operation costs. Universal Robots gives you all the advantages of advanced robotic automation, with none of the traditional added costs associated with robot programming, set-up, and dedicated, shielded work cells. The average payback period of 195 days is the fastest in the robot industry.
- Now you can replace human operators in dirty, dangerous, and dull jobs to reduce repetitive strain and accidental injuries. Most of the thousands of UR robots worldwide operate with no safety guarding (after risk assessment), right beside human operators.
- Expand production capabilities with increase quality, consistency, and production speed. The deployment of the robotic arm in 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 robot is able to re-use programs for recurrent tasks.
- The UR robot can be used in most assembly applications. It is space-saving and can be reprogrammed quickly to be used with different machines. Robot extensions can be customized to your manufacturing requirements.
- All Universal Robots’ robotics arms are certified IP-54. They will need protection when working in corrosive liquid environments.
