Automate your CNC machine tending with a robot arm from Universal Robots

Improve speed while reducing the risk of injury associated with working in close proximity to heavy machinery. If the CNC robotic arm 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 productions. If your work flow changes, the UR robot can be deployed quickly and easily in new constellations 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.

  • The UR robot can be used in most CNC applications. The space-saving CNC robot can also be reprogrammed quickly and used with different machines and peripheral systems such as vision guidance.
  • The deployment of the CNC 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.
  • Relieve workers from ergonomically unfavorable, repetitive work. With robot arms from Universal Robots you can free up your work force in order to do more important, less dangerous tasks.
  • Lower your operating costs. Universal Robots gives you all the advantages of advanced CNC 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.
  • Improve speed and precision as well as reliability and quality. Minimum rated life for UR robots is 35,000 hours running with full payload and maximum speed. Replacing a joint can be done in less than one hour. CNC robot arms can withstand significant environmental impact and changes in temperature.
  • All Universal Robots are certified IP-54. They will need protection when working in corrosive liquid environments.
