Many manufacturers are still using hand tools like calipers, micrometers or height gages for parts measurement, causing problems with consistency and measurement for complex geometries. 3D scanning provides a more comprehensive inspection report for in-process and final verification for a wide variety of industries. To automate this process, 3D…
Universal Robots announces the immediate availability of the UR16e, which boasts a 16 kg (35 lbs.) payload capability. The new UR16e combines the high payload with a reach of 900 mm and pose repeatability of +/- 0.05 mm, making it suitable for automating tasks such as heavy-duty material handling, heavy-part handling, palletizing and machine…
Universal Robots continues to address the automation skills gap with its new Application Builder tool that eases robotic cell configuration and deployment while raising robot literacy and capabilities. Application Builder walks customers through the entire process of building a successful UR robot application that is optimized for throughput and…
Universal Robots pioneered the collaborative robot and continues to evolve its ground-breaking, collaborative automation technology with the introduction of its new flagship line the e-Series cobots: UR3e, UR5e and UR10e robot arms.
What if collaborative robots didn’t just stop at collision but avoided collisions altogether? And while doing that kept performing the task they set out to do? That’s the premise for Universal Robots’ new trade show demo where a UR5 robot arm will pick "widgets" out of a feeder that moves around and is dynamically tracked by the vision-…
Small job shops struggling with the budget, programming and space requirements of traditional welding robots now have an alternative solution: The new SnapWeld Collaborative Robot Welding package developed by ARC Specialties Inc. and Universal Robots is a cobot-assisted, interactive welding system that can be deployed easily and flexibly in…
Learning how to set up and program a collaborative robot – or cobot – no longer depends on real-life access to a robot or a training class. Now everybody with a desire to learn the concepts of cobots can log in to the Universal Robots Academy and get the introduction necessary to master basic programming skills.
With Universal Robots+, the company creates its own eco-system enabling applications revolving around the collaborative robot arms UR3, UR5 and UR10 to be developed and showcased. The so-called URCaps, accessory components that extend the UR robots’ capabilities, can be customized hardware components, software plug-ins, or a combination of both.
With the new UR3 robot, Universal Robots brings the collaborative benefits of a user-friendly robot to the table.
With URCaps, Universal Robots has created the equivalent of an app store for robots.
With eight new adjustable safety rated functions, Universal Robots presents a robot that adapts advanced safety settings to each specific application.
As useful and commonplace as robots are in manufacturing, buying one is rarely a one-stop shopping experience. However, robot manufacturer Universal Robots A/S has launched a new service, UR+, which may change the way robots are bought and sold. 
Toolcraft Inc., a small machine shop in Monroe, Washington, makes parts for such industries as aerospace, defense and medical. The company needed help tending its CNC machine and ultimately turned to e-Series collaborative robots by Universal Robots A/S.
If you didn't visit it live, then through Aug. 28, you still can attend The Cobot Expo, a North American digital trade show by Universal Robots USA Inc.
