UR20 Launch @ Automatica 2022

“It can be a lot of different things, what would you want it to be?”

Universal Robots made history 14 years ago by introducing the first collaborative robot. After six years, the cobot market grew by an impressive 50%. Now, on June 21, they’ve unveiled UR20, showing they’re still all about innovation.

The CEO, Kim Povlsen, hinted at this exciting announcement during Automatica. This journey started with UR5, focusing on helping smaller manufacturers and changing how we see automation.

With over 50,000 cobots all around the world, Universal Robots has been doing a great job meeting the market’s demand for easy-to-use, flexible, and ROI-driven solutions.

There’s a buzz about a new concept robot. Some folks believe it might bring fresh thinking from Kim Povlsen and the leaders at Universal Robots. It’s an exciting moment to share with you.

In the world of robots and machines, where new ideas matter, this is an exciting time. When bright minds and new technology combine, significant changes can occur. This new concept robot is like a puzzle piece, and we’re eager to see where it fits.

We’re at a crucial point where something new could emerge. This could greatly affect how robots and people collaborate. I’m happy to share this news as we eagerly await more details. It’s a time filled with anticipation and enthusiasm as we’re about to discover what this robot news is all about.

We noticed that the new UR robot looks different from the UR16e introduced in 2019. This has sparked speculation that the new robot might be used in different ways, like in the food industry, which UR hasn’t explored before.

Now, let’s compare Universal Robots’ recent robots: the UR16e and the new one, the Universal Robot UR20.
