Our UR Cobot Range



Manufacturers around the world are turning to automation to help solve labor shortages, increase productivity and improve product quality. Collaborative robots provide a cost-effective, flexible, and safe automation solution for a wide range of production tasks.  Cobots from Universal Robots give manufacturers access to all the benefits of advanced robotic automation, without the extra costs associated with traditional robots: difficult programming, long set-up, and shielded work cells. This makes automation affordable even for small-batch production runs and mixed product assembly.  Cobots are designed to share a workspace with humans, making automation easier than ever before for businesses of all sizes. All of these benefits have made our cobots a game-changer for a wide variety of applications. 

Why Cobots?


Universal Robots’ patented technology lets operators with no programming experience quickly set up and operate our cobots. With intuitive, 3D visualization you simply move the robot arm to desired waypoints or touch the arrow keys on the easy-to-use touchscreen tablet.

Universal Robots has revolutionized cobot set-up, reducing deployment time from weeks to hours. The average set-up time reported by our customers is only half a day. The experience for an untrained operator to unpack the robot, mount it, and program the first simple task is typically less than an hour.

Don’t be limited by traditional robots that can only do one thing. Our robots are lightweight, space-saving, and easy to re-deploy to multiple applications without changing your production layout. Moving the cobot to a new process is fast and easy, giving you the agility to automate even small batch runs and frequent line change-overs.

Give dirty, dangerous, and dull jobs to cobots to reduce repetitive strain and accidental injuries to humans. 80% of the thousands of our robots worldwide operate with no safety guarding (after risk assessment). The safety system in our robots is approved and certified by TÜV (The German Technical Inspection Association).
