Universal Robots cobots are versatile, lightweight collaborative robotic arms designed to work safely alongside humans. Users program it through an intuitive touch-screen interface and by positioning the robot with their hands.
New e-Series has four models: UR3e (payload of 3 kg), UR5e (5 kg), UR10e (10 kg), and UR16e (16 kg). Equipped with dual encoders, frameless servo motors, zero-backlash harmonic drives in all six joints, and a built-in force/torque sensor at the tool flange. Includes 17 safety functions, including programmable stopping time and stopping distance. Full ISO 10218-1 compliance, ISO13849-1, Category 3, PLd rating, and 30 to 50 micron repeatability. Joints are field-replaceable in under 6 minutes. Externally accessible 500 Hz system bus enabling integration with external controllers. Enables agile deployment of complex applications such as sanding, polishing, buffing, gluing, and dispensing.
