The Glide-Line 360 is a combination of powered timing belt based conveyors working together with our family of devices to accomplish almost any type of movement (orientation change, sort, or shift) for your product in a very small space. With this new tool in your toolbox, Glide-Line's 360 will allow for endless configurations and maximize assembly workspace.

Used as a centralized hub, the new Glide-Line 360 can help solve complex pallet, work-piece and panel handling distribution challenges. By solving challenging traffic control situations, the Glide-Line 360 makes it possible to minimize the space needed for a layout in a very cost effective manner. With just one system you can now Shuttle, Divert, Merge, Sort, Stack, Lift & Lower, Transfer and Turn your pallet or pallets.

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.
