MC Redefine Productivity Introducing UR20 from Universal Robots 1 400

This Is the Cobot. Redefined.

UR20 is the first in Universal Robots’ new generation of high-performance industrial cobots. Manufacturers can use the UR20 to lift heavier and move faster in a larger work envelope.  

The UR20 is the result of constantly innovating and seeking to understand our customers’ needs. Manufacturers need greater payloads, larger work envelopes, faster speeds, and easier serviceability, out of their collaborative systems. We’ve gone to work and pioneered a next-generation cobot that can offer all those benefits in one product. This is cobots without compromise.

The UR20 collaborative robot allows you to:

#1 Increase Throughput 

Improve your productivity by using your space, your team, and your equipment more efficiently. 

#2 Boost Uptime 

The increased payload, speed, torque, and serviceability of the UR20 are helping manufacturers increase uptime on even their most heavy-duty processes.

#3 Scale Your Production Capacity

The UR20 cobot is the manufacturer’s game plan to win more orders and take on new customers. Watch this video that was unveiled at Automatica 2022

UR20 Is the Most Capable and Competitive Robot We've Ever Built 

Aiming to continuously redefine automation, Universal Robots is committed to paving the way and bringing the most innovative automation solutions to businesses of all sizes. With the new UR20, we redefine collaborative automation by creating a high-performance cobot with an active vibration dampening software and a completely redesigned joint. Manufacturers worldwide have been waiting for this cobot – a collaborative robot designed to perform heavy-duty tasks while maintaining high precision and quality.

Several aspects set UR20 apart from other collaborative robots with high payload, but here are five essential features that make it the best cobot to join your team.

MC Four Ways Omrons New Factory Drive Recorder Helps You Determine Root Causes 1 400

If a product is scratched by a robot but nobody was there to see it, how do you know what exactly happened? Intermittent problems in manufacturing lines (such as die casting) can cause millions of lost $$$ when repair workers are forced to troubleshoot without any idea of what may have caused the problem or when the problem will occur again.

Omron’s Factory Drive Recorder addresses this issue by letting you monitor machines or areas within your facility and capture what happened just after or prior to a triggering event. Whether your application involves progressive die casting, machine tooling, bottle inspection, high-precision welding, or something else, this solution can save troubleshooting time.

Omron looks at four ways that automation engineers, quality control engineers, system designers, purchasers, and maintenance personnel can benefit from this technology.
