The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) announced Esben Østergaard, the chief technology officer (CTO) of Universal Robots, as the recipient of the annual Engelberger Robotics Award for his development of collaborative robots (cobots).
Universal Robots' UR3 robot is designed to operate in harsh environments with toxic or hazardous materials and features a 360-deg rotation on all wrist joints. The compact tabletop robot weighs only 24.3 lb and a payload of 6.6 lb.
Universal Robots' UR5 robot arm has been chosen as the first non-human to ever ring the NASDAQ closing bell to mark the launch of the ROBO-STOC Global Robotics and Automation Index.
UR20 is not just a bigger version of existing UR cobots; it's the cobot redefined, boasting a joint design increasing joint speeds by up to 65% with increased TCP speed of 100% (2 m/s versus 1 m/s). The UR20 handles heavier loads, up to 20 kg with a greater reach of 1,750 mm. It's the lightest robot on the market in its payload and reach class, weighing only 64 kg with a small footprint (~245 mm).
