Meet the New E-Series Cobot from Universal Robots Featuring a Built-In Force Torque Sensor
December 6, 2021
Meet the new e-Series Cobot from Universal Robots featuring a built-in force torque sensor. There are boundless applications this cobot can do, from packaging and palletizing to machine tending and assembly. Universal Robots produce a collaborative robotic arm that is commonly referred to as a “cobot”. It is extremely flexible and easy to use in the day-to-day production. It differs from anything else in the market because it is lightweight, simple for any non-robot expert to re-program, and is easily moved around production facilities. This creates possibilities for small and medium-sized companies to implement robots into their production without needing robot expertise within the company.
All cobots are six-jointed robot arms with a very low weight (including the cabling). Universal Robot’s cobots are beneficial for all size businesses and corporations across multiple industries like automotive, electronics, metal & machining, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing. Universal Robots collaborative robots work right alongside personnel with no safety guarding. The safety settings of the latest generation of Universal Robots’ lightweight cobots can be adjusted for each specific solution. The robot arm can run in two operating modes of the safety functions; a normal and a reduced one. A switch between safety settings during the cobot’s operation is also possible. All these safety functions are safety rated PLd (EN ISO 13849:2008 ) and certified by TÜV NORD.
In 2018, a brand-new generation of Universal Robots’ cobots called e-Series was launched raising the standard for collaborative robots. The ‘e’ in e-Series stands for empowering, ease of use, and everyone. The e-Series consist of four cobots: the UR3e, UR5e, UR10e, and finally the UR16e which was launched in 2019. The CB Series have a built-in Force/Torque sensor In comparison to the previous generation, and have a higher accuracy for:
- Position repeatability (± 0.03, ± 0.03 and ± 0.05 mm)
- Force (± 3.5, ± 4.0 and ± 5.5 N)
- Torque (± 0.10, ± 0.30 and ± 0.60 Nm)
The e-Series also added a few more safety features, re-designed the teach pendant to be more intuitive and simplified the programming flow with more wizards.
