In fact, not only are UR cobots manufactured according to high quality standards, but they are proven tools for reducing waste and increasing efficiency across a wide range of manufacturing businesses and processes from thermoplastics and precision optics manufacturing to welding and automotive production.
In addition, the UR+ ecosystem of UR-certified application kits and components provides a wide range of specialized industrial quality inspection systems that can be used to reduce waste and improve the quality of finished products.
Cobots reduce energy consumption through remote monitoring and access
Digitalization of manufacturing processes supports sustainability by reducing travel costs, optimizing energy consumption, and providing tools that manufacturers can use to streamline their automation deployment. The UR+ ecosystem supports digitalization with a wide range of remote monitoring and access solutions. Remote monitoring tools allow users to track and monitor cobot performance without having to go onsite. Typically accessible via tablet, PC and smartphone, these tools provide a wealth of information on KPIs that can then be used to tweak the cobots’ performance, resulting in improved production efficiency and reduced electricity consumption. Remote access tools enable manufacturers to program their cobot(s) remotely, saving on travel costs and reducing the environmental impact of the automation deployment.
