Vention Releases the First UR+ Certified Fully-Customizable Range Extender (7th Axis) for Universal Robots

Vention, the digital manufacturing platform for factory equipment, successfully certified its modular and customizable range extender (7th-axis) for the Universal Robots family of collaborative robots.

Vention, the digital manufacturing platform for factory equipment, successfully certified its modular and customizable range extender (7th-axis) for the Universal Robots family of collaborative robots.


Users of the Vention cloud-based machine design platform can now design and order custom range extenders for Universal Robots in a matter of days.

Suitable for UR3, UR5, and UR10, including the e-Series, Vention's range extender connects seamlessly with the Universal Robots controller. Users can program their range extender from the UR teach pendant, leveraging Vention's URCap for linear motion.

Vention's deep software development expertise is fully reflected in this URCap release, which includes speed and acceleration control, absolute and relative motion control, and homing sequence features.

More benefits and features of Vention's range extender for Universal Robots:-

Fully customizable length, height, mounting orientation, and number of axes, to suit a broad range of applications.
Driven by Vention's plug-and-play linear motion technology, powered by Thomson Industries.
Ships with everything needed for deployment, including all required sensors, wires, connectors and URCap software.
Seamlessly integrates with the Universal Robots controller via Vention's URCap for linear motion, eliminating the need for complex integration and third-party software.
Available in several configurations within Vention's public library, all of which are ready to be customized for specific use cases.
Ships in 5-7 days with a pre-assembled linear axis.
"The addition of a 7th axis to our library of public assemblies, along with hundreds of other pieces of robot equipment, is part of our ongoing commitment to building an indispensable platform for anyone looking to deploy robot cells quickly and easily," says Patrick Halde, VP Sales and Business Development at Vention.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
