“In today’s uncertain economic climate manufacturers need to look at flexible solutions to stay competitive,” said Universal Robots president Jürgen von Hollen. “With UR16e, we meet the need for a collaborative robot that can tackle heavy-duty tasks reliably and efficiently.


“This launch significantly expands the versatility of our product portfolio and gives manufacturers even more ways to improve performance, overcome labour challenges, and grow their business.”

The UR16e includes built-in force sensing, 17 configurable safety functions, including customisable stopping time and stopping distance, and an intuitive programming flow.
