Collaborating Robots


Intro UR

Easily optimize your production processes with collaborative robots

Universal Robots "Cobots" are collaborative robots that enable cooperation with humans, playing a crucial role in the automation of production facilities around the world. Collaborative here also stands for interaction without spatial separation between humans and machines.

Where are Universal Robots cobots used? Wherever humans perform heavy,monotonous,dirty and dangerous work on a daily basis in the production environment. By having the robot assist and/or take over daily tasks, the worker has more time for meaningful and supervisory activities. Cobots are used in a wide range of industries from mechanical engineering and automotive to pharmaceuticals, electronics and aerospace. Joint, collaborative and close cooperation between robots and humans increases process efficiency and production safety, enables automation of monotonous and hazardous work, and leads to a reduction in production costs

The Universal Robots e-Series stands for 'Empowering', 'Ease of use', 'Everyone', and 'Evolution'. 


Universal Robots are versatile, compact and highly flexible. They were developed with the goal of being integrable in any production environment worldwide, even in the smallest manufacturing facilities. Specifically designed for the landscape of small and medium-sized manufacturing companies in Austria, Universal Robots' robots offer a wide range of automation options, increase productivity and create a decisive competitive advantage. The robots are TÜV NORD ISO 10218-1 certified and awarded with Category 3, PLd safety features according to 13849-1. 


The e-Series family

In addition to a better specification compared to the previous series, this series is mainly characterized by the fact that the last joint is monitored with a force-torque sensor.

How-to with cobots

Advantages cobots

  • Automated packaging and palletizing operations reduce costs
  • Relieve employee workload through autonomously performed "Pick-and-place work" with intelligent image processing systems and grippers
  • Quality testing through non-destructive test methods and 3D measurement of the cobot ensures product quality
  • Handling of prototype and small series parts through direct connection with the injection molding machine
  • Support of highly precise manufacturing processes with high variability thanks to individual adapter devices


Why Universal Robots?

Safe and collaborative

Cobots take on monotonous and/or dangerous tasks to increase and optimize your company's productivity. Continuous stress, injuries and accidents among human workers can be well minimized.


Quick Startup

Commissioning a cobot takes no more than 1 hour. No special electrical installation is needed. Simply plug the cables into the socket and the robot can start working. Following the motto "Plug and Produce", cobots are equipped with an intuitive user interface. This enables immediate integration into production. The average implementation time in the customer's application is normally no more than half a day.


Flexible deployment

With cobots you can automate, quickly and easily switch and configure various jobs.


Easily programmable

Patented technology allows cobots to be set up and programmed quickly. The intuitive 3D user interface can be operated without programming experience. This saves you time and money. Simply move the robot arm to the desired waypoints by hand or touch the arrow keys on the user-friendly touchscreen panel.


Quick payback

With the benefits of advanced automation with collaborative robots without the associated costs of programming, commissioning and protective enclosures previously associated with them, Universal Robots' cobots are becoming a real opportunity for small and medium-sized businesses.
