Robotic Assembly

Optimize assembly line production for agile manufacturing with small batches and fast changes

Future-proof automation platform for product assembly

Collaborative robot arms provide a future-proof platform for small businesses that need to optimize production. If your work flow changes, the assembly robotic arm can be deployed quickly and easily to new processes due to its small size and lightweight design. Easy programming (even by non-technical workers) gives you the agility to automate almost any manual task, including those with small batches or fast change-overs. And the robot can re-use programs for recurrent tasks.

Range of options for assembly automation

Cobot options from Universal Robots include three flexible and lightweight six-axis robot arms, from a small tabletop cobot, to the industry's most popular mid-range cobot, to a longer-range, heavier-payload cobot. So you can choose the right robot for your needs now and into the future. With the right adaptor mechanisms, UR collaborative robot arms can assemble plastics, woods, metals, or a wide range of other materials. Precise, six-axis operation supports a wide range of assembly operations.

Cobots work safely alongside human assembly workers

Now you can improve assembly speed and process quality while reducing the risk of injury associated with humans working in close proximity to heavy machinery. The patented technology of UR robots limits the forces if the assembly robot comes into contact with a person. The 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.

Advantages of collaborative robots for assembly applications

  • Increased quality, consistency, and production speed
  • Easy programming for fast redeployment to new assembly configurations
  • Space-saving, lightweight design for exceptional manufacturing flexibility
  • Ability to adapt assembly output to meet peak seasons and changing consumer demands
  • Fast payback with none of the traditional robotic costs for programming, set-up, and dedicated work cells
