Robotic Challenge 4.0

The robotics field is rapidly growing, especially in recent years. Robots take the place of humans in dangerous working environments. At the same time, they often outperform humans in their precise and fast working manner and are therefore, used in more and more areas.

So it's time for the ROBOTIC CHALLENGE 4.0.
From the 26th of April 2016 until 18th of October 2016, we are looking for application examples of robots. Show us, what your robot is already able to do or which visions you have regarding robots. Here, we are especially interested in examples and solutions in the area of human robot collaboration i.e. examples of collaborations of humans and robots in the industry.

Use this opportunity to present your example to the world and share your knowledge in this area. For this, upload a short presentation of your robot - preferably a video showing your robot in action -, evaluate the contributions of others and win attractive prizes. (Participation is of course for free.)

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.
