Material handling

E-commerce and fulfillment growth demands collaborative innovation for automated bin picking and packaging

Applications in material handling

It’s easy to move our flexible, lightweight robots to the areas where you need application support. When the task is finished, you can re-purpose and re-deploy the robot to other areas in your production.

Improve workplace safety by allowing a robot to handle dangerous tasks. If the 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.

Streamline your operations

Streamline your operations

  • Streamline your material handling, packaging and palletizing, bin picking, labeling and kitting operations with collaborative robots. Relieve workers from repetitive work and heavy lifting by automating material handling tasks with lightweight collaborative robot arms. Automation helps you combat the rising costs of new product packaging and shortened product life cycles, and makes it easy to keep up with seasonal peaks despite labor shortages.
Innovative grippers

Innovative grippers

  • Cobots with innovative grippers, computer vision and machine-learning systems can pick up a wide range of objects even in unstructured environments such as a bins or totes. Easily integrated SKU scanning and the ability to pick up pouches or products of nearly any size or shape make e-commerce, fulfillment, warehousing, logistics and supply chain operations simpler, faster, and more efficient.
Repetitive tasks

Repetitive tasks

  • The UR robot’s intuitive, easy-to-program interface makes the arm perfect for small-volume applications as well as highly repetitive tasks. You can reprogram and redeploy the robot as needed across your operations. If your work flow changes, the material handling robotic arm can be deployed quickly and easily in new constellations due to its small size and lightweight design.

Benefits of collaborative robots

  • UR robots can be used in most packaging and palletizing applications. Our space-saving robots can also be reprogrammed quickly and used with many different machines.
  • 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 tasks.
  • Lower your operation costs. Universal Robots gives you all the advantages of 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.
  • During busy seasons, UR robots can operate 24/7, delivering non-stop productivity to your business. They can be deployed and re-programmed as needed across tasks and applications as often as required.
  • All collaborative robots from Universal Robots are certified IP-54. They will need protection when working in corrosive liquid environment.
