“Our robot arms are advanced tools that can be used by all levels of production staff to help increase productivity, reduce injury and boost morale. With a Universal Robots robot arm, you can automate and streamline repetitive or potentially unsafe processes, so staff can be assigned to jobs that provide them with new challenges.”-Universal Robots
“Universal robots” is a company that began in Denmark, in 2005, based on the vision that the world needs a new type of robot. They envisioned a robot that is simple to use, lightweight, and flexible, and can work next to a worker without special safety equipment. The ultimate goal of UR was to enable businesses of all sizes to automate tasks by creating a range of collaborative robots.
They have beyond exceeded; since late 2008, UR has helped add 6,000 robots to different applications all over the world and has sold them in more than 50 countries. In the last 18 months, Universal Robots has tripled their revenue and doubled the number of their employees. UR now has sales offices in America, China, Singapore, India, and multiple locations across Europe.
So why should you invest in UR’s collaborative robots?
Robots excel at tasks that are predictable, repetitive, and that require strength and speed. Humans work best at problem solving skills and flexibility. Human workers are able add value to the company by doing more rewarding tasks and leaving the more repetitive tasks to robots. So this side-by-side, collaborative robot work allows maximum potential, for both robots and employees.
Collaborative Robots provide low cost flexible robot arms for an increased ability to change with production schedules. They are lightweight, small, and compact with a footprint of 1 sqm and require minimal mounting to provide for a flexible work space. There is also no experience necessary in order to program these collaborative robots as the set-up easy following logical steps and intuitive tools. Their payload ranges from 3 kg-10 kg and are ideal for a high mix-low volume manufacturing environment. Perhaps one of the biggest reasons of them all…there is an average payback period of around 195 days!
