Universal Robots – Leader in Collaborative Robots
Founded in 2005, by engineers Esben Ostergaard, Kasper Soty, and Kristian Kassow. They determined that the robot market was dominated by expensive, heavy, cumbersome robots. Their mission was to make robot technology accessible to small and medium-sized businesses. By reinventing the industrial robotics market with lightweight, flexible robot arms dubbed “cobots” (collaborative robots) they were able to bring automation to companies that may not have thought automation possible based on it being to complicated, expensive and difficult to integrate.
Dedicated to developing top-of-the-line industrial collaborative robots that automate and streamline repetitive industrial processes. Universal Robots current offering is the e-Series, UR3e, UR5e, and UR10e, the ‘e’ in e-Series stands for empowering, ease, everyone and evolution.
UR paves the way with their free online robotics training, and certified plug and play products in the UR+ ecosystem in where UR partners with other industry leaders to develop end-of-arm tooling that will enable the their collaborative robots the ability to branch into new verticals within their respective industries.
