Universal Robots

Universal Robots is a Danish manufacturer of collaborative robots, also known as cobots. The company was founded in 2005 by three robotics enthusiasts who shared the vision of making robot technology accessible to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Universal Robots is considered to be a pioneer in the cobot industry and has played a significant role in the development and popularization of collaborative robots. The company’s cobots are designed to work alongside human workers, helping to automate repetitive or dangerous tasks and improve productivity, efficiency, and safety in a variety of industries.

Universal Robots offers a range of cobot models, including the UR3, UR5, UR10, and UR16, each with different payload and reach capacities to suit different applications. The cobots are also known for their user-friendly programming and flexible deployment, making them suitable for a wide range of tasks and industries.

Most Importantly they provide a solution that can scale with operations to meet future demands and can also be re-deployed quickly to carry out new tasks.

Cobots are intended to help humans rather than replace them. Indeed, the very nature of a cobot is that it has been designed to work alongside people. Given that cobots are often used to carry out the dull, dirty and dangerous tasks in a production line, it therefore, means the human workers can focus on the tasks that add more value. As a result of operating a hybrid workforce, it’s possible to make the most of human skills which are the most valuable asset to any business.

Universal Robots are most used in:

  • Automotive and Semiconductors

  • Education and Science
  • Electronics and Technology
  • Food and Beverage
  • Medical and Cosmetics
  • Metal and Machining
  • Plastic and Polymers

The Universal Robot delivers the flexibility and financial return that manufacturers need to compete in any market condition. Across industries, collaborative robot arms increase output and quality, enable flexible production, and improve worker safety.  Consequently, flexible automation means you can fix your future costs and fill a labour gap in your operations. Given that it’s possible to implement a cobot to carry out a task and leave it running lights out, you can increase your output without a costly nightshift or buying another machine.
