Stäubli Robotics - Partner of the Automotive Industry

Manufacturers and leading suppliers in the Tier 1 and OEM categories all around the world now utilize Stäubli robots.

DUNCAN, SC - Over recent years, Stäubli Robotics has established a reputation as a reliable partner of the automotive industry.


Manufacturers and leading suppliers in the Tier 1 and OEM categories all around the world now utilize Stäubli robots. TS series SCARA robots, the six-axis RX and TX models as well as numerous special kinematic machines are deployed wherever the emphasis is on realizing exceptionally innovative solutions: for example, applications that can only be managed with top-class robots, or tasks where the utmost precision and speed are the decisive criteria and where the processes can only be reliably accomplished using Stäubli robots with their superior drive technology.

Whether the job involves the high-precision measurement that is vital in car body manufacture, the precise machining of lightweight materials, the coating of headlight lenses or the mass production of parking distance sensors, brake light switches and the like, in these and so many other applications, Stäubli robots have set the benchmark for optimum performance, quality and reliability under the harshest industrial conditions. Measuring and testing, joining and assembly, handling and processing, sealing and bonding, as well as various special individual applications, are typical of the range of processes carried out by these precision machines in the automotive industry.

Stäubli will be showcasing the latest in robot and toolchanger technology at Fabtech 2013: North America's largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event. Be sure to stop by Booth N2673 at Fabtech 2013 in Chicago, Illinois, November 18-21, 2013. Learn more about the event at www.fabtechexpo.com.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
