Universal Robots collaborative robots at IMTS 2018 in Chicago

    Danish company Universal Robots presented at the IMTS 2018 in Chicago an updated line of its collaborative robots.

    The E-series line includes three devices - UR3 , UR5 and UR10 . Robotic manipulators differ from each other primarily by carrying capacity - 3, 5 and 10 kilograms, as well as by radius of action - 50, 85 and 130 centimeters.

    The developer was not limited to external, cosmetic changes. Repeatability, propulsion and torque have been improved. All these improvements have become possible thanks to the latest sensor, which allows you to more accurately monitor all processes and prevent damage to the robot.

    When developing E-series robots, operational safety was improved. The design and interface of the controller have changed.

    Working with it has become more intuitive, and modular programming has become even more accessible.

    Universal Robots works closely with developers of grippers, computer vision modules and other optional components: MiR, RobotIQ, Sick, Pick-It and others.

    You can customize the grips by manufacturing your own elements using 3D printing - this is a convenient approach for small-scale solutions, which reduces the cost of owning a robot.

    According to the developer, the E-Series robots are universal and can be integrated into almost any production - from the simplest manipulations with objects, to packaging, polishing and turning.

    Using the latest gripping devices, robots can work with fragile objects, for example, fruits or eggs. And thanks to mobile platforms, they can move freely around the work site.

    This not only expands their capabilities in production, but also opens the way to retail and public catering, where they can be used in warehouses, for the assembly and packaging of orders.

    URs are also used in electronics assembly plants as assisting human-assembler devices. For more examples of the use of UR robots in production, see the video above.

    You can pick up and order robotics for your production in the Top 3D Shop - our employees will help you make the best choice and quickly place your order.
