Metal and machining automation with Universal Robots

Uni­ver­sal Robots has a unique­ly ver­sa­tile col­lab­o­ra­tive series of robots to offer to the met­al and machin­ing indus­tries. These robots, the UR3, UR5, and UR10 are excep­tion­al; they can tru­ly allow com­pa­nies to be one step ahead of com­peti­tors. Using a robot in the col­lab­o­ra­tive series from Uni­ver­sal Robots will boost your pro­duc­tiv­i­ty while reduc­ing time to market. 

Uni­ver­sal Robot Col­lab­o­ra­tive arms improve the quan­ti­ty and qual­i­ty of your out­put; they make it pos­si­ble for sub­trac­tive man­u­fac­tur­ers to adjust the pro­duc­tion line despite dif­fer­ing process­es, mate­ri­als, and spe­cial­ized prod­ucts. They also bring incred­i­ble accu­ra­cy (up to 0.1mm), fast adap­tion, easy deploy­ment, quick pay­back, and increased safe­ty. These col­lab­o­ra­tive arms from Uni­ver­sal Robots can help reduce the risk of employ­ee injury by tak­ing over the repet­i­tive, back break­ing tasks and the work that is in close prox­im­i­ty to dan­ger­ous machinery.

The ben­e­fits just keep com­ing! Anto­her huge advan­tage of Uni­ver­sal Robots is their flex­i­bil­i­ty and ver­sa­til­i­ty. They can be deployed across the pro­duc­tion line as need­ed, and can adapt to the spe­cif­ic needs of your appli­ca­tions. Any inex­pe­ri­enced work­er can learn, pro­gram, and install these robots incred­i­bly fast, some­times in just a few hours. 

All of these ben­e­fits were seen with a North Amer­i­can based com­pa­ny, Stantræk. This com­pa­ny need­ed to grow with­out hir­ing more peo­ple in their pro­duc­tion process; they were up against very strong com­pe­ti­tion from East­ern Euro­pean coun­tries with very low wage require­ments. So, Stantræk invest­ed in two UR5 robots that quick­ly boost­ed the bot­tom line; in just 5 years, their rev­enue almost dou­bled, from $4M to $7M. There have been zero com­plaints from the employ­ees as they real­ize that the robots play a key role in the rev­enue gen­er­a­tion and have brought the com­pa­ny back to life. Inno­v­a­tive employ­ees have even found ways to eas­i­ly pro­gram them in ways that are more ben­e­fi­cial for the pro­duc­tion line; they sim­ply grab the robot arm and show it the desired motion, thus pro­duc­ing a result that process­es items four times faster than pre­vi­ous­ly done.
