Universal Robots’ Newest Invention – UR3

May 8, 2015

UR3The World’s Most Flexible Table-Top  Robot to Work Alongside Humans
The ultra flexible Universal Robots UR3 delivers high-precision accuracy for smaller production environments. The UR3 can modulate payloads of up to 3 kg (6.6 lbs).

Designed for shorter reach environments, the UR3 has a reach radius of 500 mm (19.7 in) – allowing it to be deployed in tight spaces and add value to virtually any production environment.

The UR3 also has InfiniteSpin™ on the last joint, allowing you to use it for screwing tasks without having to add additional devices. Being easy to program and easy to switch between tasks to meet agile manufacturing needs combined with a $23,000 price means that the UR3 has a low total cost of ownership low and fast payback period.
