Universal Robots (UR) takes manufacturing to places it has never been with its revolutionary collaborative robot arms, or “cobots”, available through Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd., Canada’s leading authority on collaborative robotic technology. Now, UR has taken its innovation a step further with its new UR16e collaborative industrial robot. This device can deliver an impressive 16 kilograms (kg) of payload with a small footprint – making it perfect for heavy-duty applications like heavy-machine tending, material handling, packaging, and screw and nut driving.
For shorter cycle times
The UR16e cobot is a powerhouse robot that enables heavier end-of-arm tooling and multi-part handling. This collaborative industrial robot has unmatchable utility and is especially useful for achieving shorter cycle times. With its high payload, the UR16e can lift multiple parts in a single pick, which makes tasks more efficient. Weighing only 33.1 kg, the cobot offers a reach of 900 millimetres (mm) and a footprint of only 190 mm.
Among the major benefits of this collaborative industrial robot from Advanced Motion & Controls:
- Easy programming. Even operators with no programming experience can operate the UR16e, with its patented technology and intuitive, three-dimensional visualization. The easy-to-use touchscreen tablet allows users to guide the robot arm to desired positions.
- Quick setup. UR has reduced typical robotic deployment from weeks to hours, with an average setup time of merely half a day. It usually takes less than an hour for an untrained operator to unpack the UR16e, mount it, and program a simple task.
- Flexible deployment. UR cobots are lightweight, space-saving, and easy to re-deploy to multiple applications with no change to production layout. It is quick and easy to move the UR16e to new processes; users have the agility to automate virtually any manual tasks, even those with small batches or fast changeover.
- Safety. UR cobots reduce repetitive strain and other occupational injuries. They take on dirty, dangerous, and dull tasks that pose risks to human workers. The German Technical Inspection Association has approved and certified the UR16e’s safety system.
