Focus on COBOT Applications

Sponsored by Universal Robots

This site was developed to help educate manufacturers and others in the automation industry about collaborative robots, the fastest growing segment in industrial automation. It is hosted by WTWH Media and sponsored by Universal Robots, the market leader in collaborative robots (cobots). Whether you’re just starting to learn about cobots or you’re knee-deep with your fifth cobot integration, this site will provide helpful information, offered through white papers, case study videos, events, literature and educational webinars.

Collaborative Robots and Machine Tending

This white paper takes an in-depth look at machine tending operations within today’s factories, and how cobots help machine shops free up valuable personnel, increase capacity while improving quality, and breathe new life into idle equipment.

This white paper discusses how Universal Robots’ Cobots are helping industries and companies that never before benefited from automated solutions to reshore operations, improve quality, fill labor gaps, and improve worker health and retention.

Case Studies

Universal Robots Automates Small Batch Welding at Montana Solar

MT Solar designs and manufactures mounting structures for solar modules of all sizes. A DIY Vectis Cobot Welding Tool powered by a Universal Robots UR10e collaborative robot now handles a wide range of welds, enabling quick change-overs and optimized production. MT Solar overcame labor shortages and freed current staff from repetitive welding tasks while successfully handling a 300% surge in demand.

Universal Robots quadruples injection molding output at Dynamic Group

Dynamic Group had difficulty staffing their injection molding production and wanted to make better use of their existing labor force. Three collaborative robot arms from Universal Robots have now taken over several repetitive tasks resulting in improved product consistency and production capacity increases of up to 400%.

Cobots Take Over Undesirable Tasks; Optimize Assembly & Packaging by 30%

Darex, a manufacturer of drill and knife sharpeners implemented cobots for screw-driving and box-erecting applications and optimized its assembly and packaging operations by 30 percent.
