Universal Robots’ robotic arms are used in hundreds of production environments every day. Below you’ll find a selection of cases where automation robots have been used to perform production 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.
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of bathroom accessories and auto parts, Xiamen Runner Industrial Corporation in China, has installed 64 UR robots to upgrade the efficiency of the production process by establishing a highly-efficient, flexible, and reliable production line. The UR robots are installed in 10 different applications.
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.
Robots work alongside people to eliminate wastage in power tool assembly
Power tool manufacturer, RUPES, made a bold commitment to eliminating defects and waste on its production line, whilst improving the working conditions of its excellent workforce. Here's how it deployed UR robots to collaborate with its human workers, and supercharge its levels of production.
Why the World’s Third Largest Motorcycle Manufacturer Opted for Universal Robots.
As the first Indian company to implement the use of collaborative robots in automotive assembly lines in 2010, Bajaj Auto Ltd. today has more than 100 cobots driving its position as the world’s 3rd largest motorcycle manufacturer. It sold over 3.3 million vehicles in 2015.
Mobile robot colleagues on wheels increase productivity and worker safety at Scott Fetzer Electrical Group
A mobile fleet of Universal Robots now receives daily work orders to solve ever-changing tasks with high mix - low volume electronics manufacturer Scott Fetzer Electrical Group (SFEG) in Tennessee. The collaborative robots have optimized production by 20 percent, taking over monotonous and potentially hazardous tasks from employees now reallocated to more rewarding jobs.
