Are you a manufacturer that can see the value of robot-assisted production but are concerned about the cost not only of the robot itself but also its programming? Don’t be, a Universal Robot (UR) from R. A. Rodriguez is affordable, adaptable and very easy to programme so it can be applied a whole range of machine tending tasks. It’s also designed to be collaborative, so your shop floor staff can work alongside it in complete safety, without the need for guarding on many applications.
A UR robot can tend machines and relieve employees from the tedium of repetitive work, freeing their time to be used to add value to your business. With UR’s fast, flexible deployment you are able to quickly adapt production lines to new products.
Improve speed and process quality while reducing the risk of injury associated with working in close proximity to heavy machinery. If the machine tending robot comes into contact with a person, patented technology limits the forces at contact (in accordance with TS15066). UR robots can also be programmed to operate in reduced mode when a human enters the robot’s work area and resume full speed when the person leaves.
