Cobots are collaborative robot arms designed to interact with humans in automated manufacturing facilities. Collaborative robot arms provide many of the same benefits as full-sized robots but cost less and are easier to set up and program. Cobots are also more lightweight and flexible for use in small or tight spaces and provide a safe alternative to having workers perform dangerous or overly strenuous tasks.
Cobots Increase the Productivity of Your Manufacturing Facility
Currently, there are more than 34,000 UR cobots in use in thousands of production environments around the world. Be more competitive with increased productivity and improved product quality by incorporating cobots from Universal Robots into your manufacturing process.
Collaborative Robot Arm Applications
Use cobots in a broad range of manufacturing and automation applications including, but not limited to:
- Pick and Place
- Injection Moldering
- Packaging and Palletizing
- Quality Inspection
- Polishing and Sanding
- Screw Driving
- Lab Analysis and Testing
Collaborative Robot Arms for Collaborative and Flexible Automation
Universal Robot’s family of collaborative robot arms are easily programmable, versatile, and designed to work side by side with humans. With six articulated points mimicking the range of motion of a human arm, the cobots are available in three sizes to best fit your tasks and space limitations. Designed to share space with humans for collaborative tasks or to work alone, cobots free up valuable human time to reallocate to more important functions.
Cobot End-Effector, Accessory, and Software Options
Also available are hundreds of UR+ plug-and-play products tested, approved, and certified for use with Universal Robot arms. Products include end-effectors, accessories, and software. A sampling of the over 50 cobot end effectors includes:
- Vacuum tools
- Soft Hand and Finger Adaptive Grippers
- Sander Kits
- Soldering Kits
Some of the nearly 60 collaborative robot arm accessories available include:
- Range Extenders
- Safety Skins
- Covers (including temperature)
- Tool Chargers
Easy Cobot Programming and Set-Up for All Your Automation Needs
Even operators with no programming experience can easily program robots. Lightweight and easy to mount, set up and programming typically take only a half-day. When your automation needs change, the cobots can be easily redeployed to a new environment or new task, giving you the ability to automate even small runs.
