Universal Robots’ next generation collaborative robot handles more tasks, is suited to more applications, and assists in more business environments than ever before. With a 1750mm reach and 20kg payload capacity, the UR20 is the first in UR’s next generation of industrial cobots designed to embrace the Universal Robots’ hallmarks of versatility, usability and small footprints.
The last time UR introduced a new cobot was 2019 when it added the UR16e. UR’s cobot portfolio also includes the UR3e (3kg payload), UR5e (5kg) and UR10e (12.5kg).
“The launch of a completely new cobot is cause for celebration, especially when it comes to one that comes from the market leader: Universal Robots.”
Director of the Robotics and Automation Division at SU-PAD
Automate manual tasks
Repetitive and low value tasks cause workers to lose focus and increase the likelihood of human error, resulting in inconsistent parts and delayed production schedules.
Protect your workers
8% of the top five reasons for manufacturing workplace injuries happen due to repetitive motions; 24% happen because of strain. The UR20 cobot can automate what strains workers, so that your team can be appointed where they are needed and valued most.
Packing & palletising
Where picking, packing and palletising of heavy parts is required, the UR20 can help customers gain efficiencies and productivity. The UR20 enables reach for standard EURO pallets, and stacking of up to 2m in height.
The UR20 offers flexible processing of a diverse range of larger dimension parts to machinery such as cutting, punching, drilling, machining and forming. Mountable in any position the UR20 easily moves around workplace objects such as machine tending doors.
Greater payload allows heavier workpiece handling, as well as the option to configure two or more end effectors for even better cycle times. Manufacturing and assembly of large equipment such as diesel engines, driveline, transmission and battery assemblies often require human robot collaboration.
In applications where reaching for long seams of parts and components is typically required, the small footprint of the UR20 enables multiple robots be used in the same production cell. New joint architecture improves motion consistency while the larger 1750mm reach geometry increases your work zone.
UR20 joins an incredible family of collaborative robots and enables businesses to move faster and accomplish more.
