Univeral Robots launches e-Series with cobot technology

Universal Robots, a specialist in collaborative robots, is continuing to evolve its ground-breaking, collaborative automation technology with the introduction of its new flagship e-Series cobots.

This new collaborative robot platform includes technology advances that enables faster development for a wider variety of applications. Improvements include the ability to economically address even more applications, thanks to greater precision and sensitivity provided by a built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor.

Like other Universal Robots offerings, the new e-Series offers real convenience. Now, a re-designed control panel and new programming and control software make deployment and programming easier than ever – regardless of application.

17 safety functions, including customizable stopping time and distance, make collaborative automation easier. Certified by TÜV Nord all these functions are in compliance with the EN ISO 13849-1 and EN ISO 10218-1 (Cat. 3 PLd) machinery safety standards for unobstructed human-robot collaboration.

Looking at the big picture, e-Series users can expect a fast return on investment, a cobot system ready for any future application, and long-term productivity gains.

“Our e-Series platform is leveraging our years of experience as the market leader within collaborative robots,” says Jürgen von Hollen, President of Universal Robots. “The ‘e’ in e-Series underpins our key vision and overall product philosophy, specifically Empowering people and making it Easy for Everyone.”

“End-users with complex applications and diverse or uncertain future needs will benefit from the e-Series platform and our unique Universal Robots+ ecosystem knowing that their investment will be able to grow with them as their needs change,” von Hollen continues.“We enable innovative customers to rapidly drive adoption of automation technology into their businesses to maximise their competitive advantage.”

“The global cobot market is expected to continue to be one of the key growth drivers in the automation market the coming years. With the e-Series, my expectation is that we at Universal Robots will continue to leverage our position as the cobot market leader. This, however, can only be done by staying ahead technologically, hence the launch of e-Series,” says the Universal Robots President emphasizing the importance of Universal Robots+ and the online training program Universal Robots Academy which will both support the e-Series platform.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
