Company Profile

Universal Robots has reinvented industrial robotics with lightweight and flexible robot arms.

Universal Robots. 

Precise. Collaborative. Easy to use. 

From the small machine shop to the auto assembly line, Universal Robots spans a multitude of industries.

As Seen In Modern Machine Shop

Fill the Night Shift with a Machine-Tending Cobot
When a large order necessitated adding a third shift, Toolcraft was having trouble hiring anyone to cover it. By investing in a UR5e collaborative robot from Universal Robots, the shop quickly achieved 24/7 production as well as time savings and increased throughput.

Shop Doubles Production Capacity with Robotic Machine Tending
In an unusual case of workers pleading for the adoption of machine-tending robots, Fusion OEM has realized great increases in capacity while freeing up machinists to more complex tasks.

Deal Between Universal Robots, Haas Distributor to Increase Machine Shop Access to Cobots
“There is tremendous potential both for retrofitting existing installations with UR cobots and for getting through the door to new customers, offering turnkey solutions,” says Phillips Corp.

Universal Robots Opens Authorized Training Centers
Through hands-on classes hosted by UR trained teachers, the ATCs aims to broaden users’ understanding of the UR cobots’ range of use cases, while providing opportunities for hands-on practice in real-life applications.

What is the Role of Collaborative Automation in Production?
Thyssenkrupp Bilstein’s North American operations is finding out. The shock absorber manufacturer has eight cobots and counting in its Ohio production facility, plus two autonomous vehicles. Here are scenes from its shop where the picture of automation is changing.

If at First Your CNC Machine Shop Doesn’t Succeed with Robots, Automate Again
Alexandria Industries struggled with its first robotic machining cell. However, the aluminum extrusion components manufacturer — now with more than 20 robots — discovered that by simplifying and standardizing its automation strategy, it could reap the benefits of unattended machining even for relatively low batch sizes.
