Cobots from Universal Robots are bringing flexible automation to manufacturers of all sizes. From assembly to painting, from palletizing to screw-driving, or injection molding to welding our family of robot arms can help you achieve greater productivity to compete in a global market.
Are cobots right for your company? Aren't cobots just toys? In this section, we debunk the top five myths about cobots. While cobots made up just five percent of the $14 billion industrial-robot market in 2017, they are estimated to jump to 27 percent of a $33 billion market by 2025.
Currently, most collaborative robots including Universal Robots are inherently designed to limit power and force. If the robot detects a certain level of power or force, the robot stops the system to protect the human operator.
Soft Robotics Inc. has introduced a new version of its mGrip soft gripper technology for collaborative robots. Called coDrive, the gripper has its own control logic and an independent air source, so the device can be used in applications without the need to be tethered to source of pressurized air.
Two primary challenges facing manufacturers today are their inability to fill open positions, and the immense costs associated with workplace injuries. These factors add up to one conclusion, amidst a labor shortage that is constricting the availability of skilled workers: on-the-job injuries place a heavy toll on manufacturers.
With the UR+ Partner Program, Universal Robots launched the world’s first ecosystem of third-party end-effectors and other add-ons for collaborative robots. This business model was not the only path we could have chosen to complete our robotic arms, so why did we select it?
The UR+ Partner Program is a leading product platform designed to help our customers automate their applications in the easiest and most efficient manner. To date, there are over 170 industry-leading products in the UR+ ecosystem that have been certified to work with Universal Robots cobots in a "plug-and-play" fashion.
This webinar will introduce you to the Universal Robots UR+ Partner Program. This unique network of certified products is developed by third parties, then certified by us to be "plug-and-play" compatible with the Universal Robots cobots.
