Collaborative Robot Tasks: Light Years Beyond Pick & Place
Originally Recorded January 11, 2022 | 2 PM - 3 PM ET
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
When collaborative robots exploded onto the industrial manufacturing scene nearly 15 years ago, they were mainly used for simple pick and place operations. But with collaborative robots being so flexible and easy to program, cobots are now automating dull, dirty and dangerous tasks in nearly every area of manufacturing, from welding to palletizing to polishing.
In this webinar, we’ll explore the latest and most exciting applications that cobots are tackling, including AI, teleoperation, cloud-based/cell phone cobot programming, and tasks that can be done by combining a cobot mounted to a mobile robot. If you’re looking to automate in 2022 but aren’t sure a collaborative robot can handle the task at hand, this webinar is for you!
Attendees Will Learn:
- Basic cobot technology and what makes them so flexible and easy to program
- The UR+ ecosystem and value of this certification program
- Cloud-based cobot programming
Universal Robots aims to empower change in the way work is done using its leading-edge robotics platform. Since introducing the world’s first commercially viable collaborative robot (cobot) in 2008, UR has developed a product portfolio including the UR3e, UR5e, UR10e, UR16e and UR20, reflecting a range of reaches and payloads. Each model is supported by a wide selection of end-effectors, software, accessories and application kits in the UR+ ecosystem. This allows the cobots to be used across a wide range of industries and means that they can be redeployed across diverse tasks.
The company, which is part of Teradyne Inc., is headquartered in Odense, Denmark, and has offices in the USA, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the Czech Republic, Romania, Turkey, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Mexico.
Universal Robots has installed over 50,000 cobots worldwide.
We have a comprehensive sales and support network with over 800 distributors and certified system integrators located in over 60 countries helping our customers select, purchase, deploy and care for their cobots.
