Universal Robots (UR) is reinventing industrial robotics with lightweight and flexible robotic arms. They are the market leader in collaborative robots, also known as cobots, which are robots designed to work alongside humans in a shared workspace. Universal Robots are equipped with sensors and safety features that allow them to operate safely in close proximity to people.
They are often used in manufacturing, assembly, and other industrial settings. However, they can also be used in other applications such as healthcare, retail, and education. They can be programmed to perform a wide range of tasks, and can be integrated with other automation systems such as conveyors and other robots. These revolutionary robotic arms remove the need for expensive industrial guards and safety scanners.
Flex-Line is a proud certified integrator and partner with Universal Robots and can equip your facility with fantastic collaborative solutions. These cobots are easy to operate, move, and integrate into your facility in a breeze. We are ready to help you increase efficiency and safety at your facility throughout production and end of line processes.
There are a variety of applications for collaborative robots:
Assembly: UR robots can be used to assemble products, such as electronics, medical devices, and automotive parts. They can be programmed to perform tasks such as screwing, gluing, and inserting components with high accuracy and speed.
Material Handling: UR’s can be used to move and transport materials around a factory or warehouse. They can be integrated with conveyors and other equipment to create automated material handling systems.
Packaging and Palletizing: cobots can be used to package (case pack) and palletize products. They can be programmed to handle products with different shapes and sizes, and can be integrated with vision systems to identify and sort products.
Quality Control: UR cobots can be used to inspect products for defects, such as scratches, cracks, or missing components by integrating them with cameras and other sensing equipment to perform automated quality control inspections.
Machine Tending: Universal Robots can be used to load and unload parts from machines, such as CNC mills, lathes, and 3D printers. They can be programmed to perform tasks such as clamping, gripping, and positioning parts with high precision.
Welding, Sanding, and Painting: UR cobots can be used for welding and painting tasks with high precision and speed. This can reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of the process.
Box Making: Universal Robots can be used with our patent pending boxEZ system in order to make a variety of different sizes of boxes in a small footprint.
