UR3 Unleashes New Possibilities In Automation
Do you every wish you had a third hand? When you’re working on a manufacturing process that requires proper torque, precise movements, and steady pressure, having an extra hand there helping you is always welcome. But having two people working on a single task can use up valuable man-power that could be better allocated elsewhere. So how can you perform these delicate tasks more efficiently?
Meet the solution: the Universal Robots UR3.
A new era of robot technology
Already recognized as the world’s most flexible, light-weight table-top robot, the UR3 works beside humans to speed up automation and improve product quality. Its wide range of capabilities is equally impressive: Possible applications include assembly, soldering, painting, operating hand tools, and more.
UR3 is designed for shorter-reach environments with a reach radius of 500 mm (19.7 in). It can be used in tight, difficult-to-reach spaces and its infinite rotation feature makes it easy to mount and tighten screws. Its precision is also a great benefit in assembly processes. As opposed to human workers, who cannot maintain exact pressure while applying glue or performing other tasks, UR3 maintains constant pressure at all times. This means more uniform product quality, improved efficiency, and reduced production costs.
Safety is also emphasized in this robot model. Because the UR3 is intended for working side-by-side with human workers, it is designed to be used without expensive safety guarding. It is force sensitive and will stop immediately when it comes into contact with a force as low as 50 Newton.
Even more stunning is the UR3’s low price. Without the added costs of robot programming, set up, or dedicated shield work cells, the UR3 can quickly deliver return on investment. This incredible robot is planned to be launched in the U.S. at Automate 2015. You can learn more about the UR3 in this brochure.
The new era of robots is here. With the nearly endless application possibilities the UR3 offers, automation has become a more powerful tool than ever before. Just what will you do with the UR3?
