Universal Robots Company Overview

We believe that collaborative robotic technology can be used to benefit all aspects of task-based businesses – no matter what their size.

Our robot arms are advanced tools that can be used by all levels of production staff to help increase productivity, reduce injury, and boost morale. With a Universal Robots robot arm, you can automate and streamline repetitive or potentially unsafe processes, so staff can be assigned to jobs that provide them with new challenges.

We believe that the latest collaborative robot technology should be available to all businesses. The nominal investment cost is quickly recovered as our robotic arms have an average payback period of just six months.

We’re dedicated to making the world a better place, one robot at a time.

We’re Universal Robots.

In fact, Deloitte predicts that a skills gap may leave an estimated 2.4 million positions unfilled between 2018 and 2028 in the U.S. alone. On the other hand, consumers are demanding more than ever from manufacturers, including real time availabil...

Or you can just imagine attaching a sewing machine to the end of a robot arm and moving that around....

But that never happens to robots.” Operations manager at Zippertubing in Arizona, USA, Tim Mead, describes in an interview with The New York Times how his UR5 cobot now tends the snap-set machines that add thermal wrap around hoses, pipes, and cables. The 25-second cycle concludes as the UR5 presents the piece to a vision camera that inspects whether the snaps are added correctly....
