City: Odense – DENMARK
Application market: Industry 4.0 / Technology
Universal Robots is the result of many years of intensive research at Denmark’s successful robot cluster, which is located in Odense, Denmark. The company was co-founded in 2005 by the company’s CTO, Esben Østergaard, who wanted to make robot technology accessible to all by developing small, user-friendly, reasonably priced, flexible industrial robots that are safe to work with and on their own can be used to streamline processes in the industry.
The product portfolio includes the collaborative UR3, UR5 and UR10 robotic arms named after their payload in kilos. Since the first UR robot launched in December 2008, the company has experienced considerable growth with the user-friendly robots now sold in more than 50 countries worldwide. At just 195 days, the average payback period for UR robots is the fastest in the industry. The company, a part of Boston-based Teradyne Inc, is headquartered in Odense and has subsidiaries and regional offices in the U.S., Spain, Germany, Singapore, Czech Republic, India, and China. Universal Robots has more than 350 employees worldwide.

- UR3 – Ultra flexible table-top robot
UR3 is our new, smaller collaborative table-top robot for light assembly tasks and automated workbench scenarios. The compact table-top robot weighs only 24.3 lbs (11 kg), but has a payload of 6.6 lbs (3 kg), 360-degree rotation on all wrist joints and infinite rotation on the end joint. These unique features make UR3 the most flexible, lightweight, collaborative table-top robot to work side-by-side with employees in the market today. It’s an ideal choice for applications that require 6-axis capabilities where size, safety and costs are critical.
The UR3 collaborative robot is an optimal assistant in assembly, polish, glue, and screw applications requiring uniform product quality. The new table-top robot can also be used in a separate work station mounted on the table, picking, assembling and placing parts in optimized production flows. Because of its compact form and easy programming, it’s easy to switch it between tasks to meet agile manufacturing needs making total cost of ownership low and payback period ultra fast. The UR3 robot applications span manufacturing industries from medical devices to circuit boards and electronic components
Did you know?
The UR3 robot is built with the same proven collaborative technology as our UR5 and UR10 robot arms. All three collaborative robots feature the same safety system and 0.1 mm repeatability. UR3 has a default force sensing of 150 Newton but can be set to stop if it encounters a force as low as 50 Newton in its route.
UR3 table-top robot in short
– Automate tasks up to 6.6 lbs (3 kg) Reach radius of up to 19.7 in (500 mm) Fastest payback in the industry
- UR5 – A highly flexible robot arm
The lightweight, flexible and collaborative industrial robot – UR5 – from Universal Robots lets you automate repetitive and dangerous tasks with payloads of up to 5 kg. The UR5 is ideal to optimize low-weight collaborative processes, such as: picking, placing and testing.
With a working radius of up to 850mm, the UR5 collaborative robot puts everything within reach, freeing up your employees’ time to add value to other stages of the production.
The UR5 from Universal Robots is very easy to program, offers fast set up, is collaborative and safe, and like our other collaborative robots, offers one of the fastest payback times in the industry.
UR5 in short
– Automate tasks up to 5 kgs (11 lbs) Reach radius of up to 850 mm (33.5 in) Fast payback time
The Universal Robots UR10 is our largest industrial robot arm, designed for bigger tasks where precision and reliability are still of paramount importance. With the indstrial robot arm – UR10 – you can automate processes and tasks that weighs up to 10 kg.
Heavier-weight collaborative processes, such as: packaging, palletizing, assembly and pick and place are all well suited to the UR10 industrial robot. With a reach radius of up to 1300mm, the UR10 industrial robot is designed to be more effective at tasks across a larger area. You can therefore save time on production lines where distance can be a factor.
