New Cobot Features 30-kg PayloadDecember 1, 2023
Universal Robots just revealed at the iRex trade fair in Tokyo, Japan, that it is expanding its product portfolio with a new 30-kg-payload cobot. The UR30, second in the company’s new series of cobots, is built on the same architecture as the UR20 cobot. Features include compact size, impressive lift and high motion control, allowing precise placement of large payloads and allowing it to work at higher speeds and lift heavier loads, according to Universal Robots officials.
Ideal applications include machine tending, material handling and high-torque screwdriving. For machine tending, the high payload reportedly allows the cobot to use multiple grippers at the same time. Thus it can remove finished parts and load more material in one single pass, shortening changeover times and maximizing productivity. The UR30 also supports high-torque screwdriving as it can handle larger and higher-output torque tools, and with a steady mode feature, it delivers straight and consistent screw driving. And, the UR30’s 30-kg payload enables material handling and palletizing of heavy products across all industries
With a small footprint and weighing 63.5 kg, the UR30 can fit into almost all workspace, and can be moved easily between workcells. It is available for pre-orders, and will begin shipping in 2024’s first quarter.
