Universal Robots has added the new 20kg cobot to its product range.
Called the UR20, the cobot boasts an all-new design based on Universal Robots' experience in highly refined engineering and is the latest addition to the company's portfolio of cobots.
The UR20 is the best demonstration yet of Universal Robots' innovation in the cobot space, featuring an entirely new joint design that will allow for even faster cycle times as well as the ability to handle heavier loads. Its 1750mm reach has been designed to work to the full height of the standard Euro-pallet, while its small footprint will allow companies to achieve more within their existing production space.
In addition to palletizing, Universal Robots expects the UR20 to be used for welding, material handling, machine loading and machine tending, as well as for innovative solutions created by its extensive partner ecosystem.
"This is not just a bigger version of our existing cobots; it's the cobot redefined," says the company's President, Kim Povlsen.
"The UR20 is the most innovative cobot we have produced and the latest evolution in 17 years of technical experience in the robotics industry. Our expert engineers have completely re-engineered the arm while retaining the same intuitive user interface we have long been celebrated for.
"The benefits of the UR20 are significant, from faster cycle times and the ability to handle heavier loads, to greater reach with a small footprint. We've also incorporated advanced software enhancements, giving users unprecedented motion control capabilities."
The UR20 signals the start of a new series of innovative, next-generation cobots, which will complement the company's e-Series. "Our commitment to every customer's success is reflected in the effort we put into creating our products, and the development of the UR20 is a perfect example of this," says Povlsen.
