First robot to collaborate directly with employees at Volkswagen plant

The car manufacturing group Volkswagen has integrated an industrial robotic arm from the Danish manufacturer Univer-sal Robots into mass production at its engine production plant in Salzgitter, Germany. The lightweight robot UR5 is installed in the cylinder head assembly section, where it is responsible for handling delicate glow plugs. This is the first collaborative robot in use at Volkswagen worldwide. Due to its integrated safety mode, the six-axis robotic arm is able to collaborate directly with people without any guards, contrib-uting significantly towards optimizing ergonomic working processes.
