Universal Robots, were showcased their products in the 12th Edition of Automation Expo through their channel partners Alstrut India Pvt Ltd, Precimac Solutions and Rajdeep Automation Pvt Ltd. The expo was held at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre, Goregaon from August 9-12, 2017.
Universal Robots are the leading manufacturers of advanced user-friendly and light industrial robotic arms from Denmark. Their latest technological advancement in collaborative robots or ‘Co-bots’ was brought out in the international market with a unique intention which is in line with Industrial 4.0. They have a wide market in the USA, Europe and have now expanded operations in India and the SAARC region.
The UR3 table-top robot is the perfect choice for light assembly tasks and jobs that call for absolute precision. With 360-degree rotation on all wrist joints and infinite rotation on the end joint, the UR 3 is the most flexible, versatile and collaborative robots on the market today. The slightly bigger UR5 is ideal for automating low-weight processing tasks like picking, placing and testing. The medium-sized robot arm offers one of the fastest payback times in the industry. The UR10, being the largest robot arm in the UR family will automate heavier weight process tasks with payload requirements of upto 10 kg. With a reach radius of 1300 mm the UR10 robot arm is especially suitable for packaging, palletising, assembly and pick and place where the distance between different operating areas is longer.
Pradeep David, General Manager, Universal Robots, South Asia, said, “The UR robots arms can automate virtually anything, we mean virtually anything; from assembly to painting, screw driving, labelling, packing, polishing, and injection and whatever other tasks you can think of. The UR arms can be implemented in virtually any industry, by any employee. Our robotic arms have an average payback time of just 195 days, which makes them the most favorable in the market, within reach of most companies.”
Universal Robots has been the front runner of collaborative robotics since the company was founded in 2005. Industry reports state that the UR5 does in 4 hours, what it would take manual labour two to three days to accomplish. The UR3, the UR5 and the UR10 each named after their payload capacity in kilograms and each with outstanding collaborative abilities will make them a favourite on the production line.
