Industry experts cite automation and technology as two key factors helping companies recover in the year ahead. This white paper shows how collaborative robots can play a role in helping companies succeed in the Covid-19 world.
Based in Tacoma, WA, Tool Gauge manufactures precision metal and plastic components for the aerospace industry. Like a lot of U.S. manufacturers, the company faces two main challenges: beating overseas competitors and containing staffing costs in a tight labor market.
Sometimes, the best assembly is no assembly. If a feature can be formed or created in a part, rather than added to the part on the assembly line, then that's one less process step engineers have to worry about.
Robots have always struggled to match human touch. But, recent advances in sensor technology now enable the machines to process the sensitive forces needed for delicate assembly tasks, such as placing, inserting and tightening parts.
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.
This white paper discusses how developments in robotics technology has led to a rise in lean integrators, whose unique structures and focused areas of expertise are critical to delivering automation benefits for small to medium enterprises.
With our 3 kg, 5kg, 10kg, and 16kg payload cobots, the opportunities to automate are endless. Curious on the other performance and technical details of our collaborative robots? View our Technical Details infographic to learn more.
