The UR3 robot is the most flexible, space-saving, and lightweight table-top robot in the collaborative series. It is a small compact robot, weighing in at 11 kg and is able to conquer a payload up to 3 kg. It has a 500 mm reach, 0.1 mm repeatability, and 360 degree rotation on all wrist joints including infinite rotation on the end joint. The UR3 is super easy to re-deploy without changing the layout of your production line. This provides you with the agility to automate pretty much any manual task, making it the perfect solution for applications that require 6-axis capabilities where size, safety, and costs are critical.
The compact size and easy set-up and programming of the UR3 make it easy to switch between tasks to meet a variety of manufacturing needs. Customers have reported an average set-up time of half a day and the mounting and programming can take less than an hour.
For safety purposes, there is a default force sensing of 150 Newton which can also be set to stop if it encounters a force as low as 50 Newton in its route. Thousands of UR robots are currently deployed that have zero safety guarding and work directly next to humans. This safety system is approved by TUV (The German Technical Inspection Association).
The UR3 is truly perfect robot to work side-by-side with employees for light assembly tasks and automated workbench scenarios. This makes it the finest assistant for jobs in assembly, polish, glue, and screw applications requiring uniform product quality. The UR3 is being used in a wide range of applications from medical devices to circuit board and electronic components. It can also be used in a separate work station mounted on the table for picking, assembling, and placing parts in optimized production flows.
