Universal Robots is the market leader in collaborative robot arms. Since introducing the world’s first commercially viable cobot in 2008, UR has developed a product portfolio including the UR3e, UR5e, UR10e, and UR16e, reflecting each cobot’s payload in kg. Universal Robots has sold more than 50,000 cobots to date.
Each model is supported by a host of plug-&-play end effectors, software, kits and accessories in the UR+ certification program, allowing for flexible redeployment of one robot into several diverse applications. Universal Robots is automating every manufacturing industry thanks to its quick setup and intuitive programming that allows frontline workers to become cobot operators and programmers.
Universal Robots was purchased by Teradyne in 2015 for $285 million. Headquartered in Odense, Denmark, Universal Robots operates out of US offices in Boston, Ann Arbor, Michigan, New York, Dallas, Texas, and Irvine, California.
