Robots Get Hand-Eye Coordination
Artificial vision, touch and intelligence help collaborative robots cope with the unpredictable.

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.
