Universal Robots

Universal Robots has reinvented industrial robotics with lightweight and flexible robot arms dubbed “cobots” (collaborative robots). The Danish-designed cobots automate production in all industries  – even in SMEs that regard automation as prohibitively expensive, cumbersome, and difficult to integrate. 


Universal Robots+: Besides the three collaborating robot arms, the company offers Universal Robots+,  an unique ecosystem that provides space for the creation of all thinkable applications within the free  UR+ Developer Program. The innovative Plug&Play applications are being presented in the Universal Robots+ showroom. UR+ paves the consumer’s way to the most easy and quick setup of Universal Robots applications.

Universal Robots Academy: With its online training Universal Robots provides a free-of-charge offer for everybody with a desire to learn the concepts of collaborative robots. The platform is built to deliver hands-on learning for handling the lightweight robot arms UR3, UR5 and UR10. The aim of the open to all training modules is to further lower the automation barrier and to reduce the integration time and costs. 


Principal benefits • Simple to program • Easy to install • Flexible deployment • Adjustable safety functions • Collaborative cobots – can run without safety guarding, based on the results of a risk assessment • Fast payback period (quick ROI) • Works independently without any need for human monitoring and control • Extremely quiet – no irritating robot noise • Energy-efficient • Modular design • TÜV approved • True Absolute Encoders – no need for encoder battery backup • Multiple I/O’s – seamless integration with external machinery
