Machine Tending Robots

Machine Tending Robots relieve machine operators from physically demanding, repetitive work and eliminate the risk of injuries. A collaborative robot can be used to tend machines such as CNC, injection molding, press brakes, stamping presses and more to free employees for more valuable tasks.

Improve speed and process quality while reducing the risk of injury associated with working in close proximity to heavy machinery. If the machine tending cobot comes into contact with a person, our patented technology limits the forces at contact. Universal Robots can also be programmed to operate in reduced mode when a human enters the cobot’s work area and resume full speed when the person leaves.

Add value to your business with the collaborative robot arm that pays for itself more quickly than any other cobot in the industry. With Universal Robot’s fast and flexible deployment, you can quickly adapt production lines to new products. Universal Robots provides a future-proof platform for small businesses looking to optimize productions. If your work flow changes, the cobot can be deployed quickly and easily in new constellations due to its small size and lightweight design.

UR industrial robots can be used across all areas of plastic and polymer production, including injection molding applications. For added connectivity and ease-of-deployment, the Injection Molding Machine Interface (IMMI) option includes both control box connector module and the cable for connection to the injection-molding machine along with user-friendly programming templates for fast and easy deployment.
