Compact collaborative Universal Robots UR3 from RNA Automation

RNA is offering an addition to the Universal Robots range, the UR 3 collaborative robot, a power tool suitable for small-format precision tasks. With the UR3, Universal Robots adds an innovative, compact option to the UR collaborative robots family. The same collaborative safety and usability benefits pioneered in the UR5 and UR10 robots are now available for workbench and table-top settings. The compact UR3 offers an affordable "third-hand helper' that allows a single worker to accomplish what traditionally would be a two-person task. There is a whole host of options to use the UR3 as an automated power tool where lack of space is a challenge.

Small in size, not ability: Meet high-precision production needs with the UR3's payload of 3kg (6.6 lbs) and reach of 500mm (19.7 in). The UR3 uses the same technology as larger robots in the range - just in a smaller package which gives endless opportunities for using the robot in confined spaces. Weighing in at only 11kg (24.3 lbs), the robot arm can be easily moved to new projects as needed.

Built with safety in mind: The UR3 is force sensitive and can be set to stop immediately when it encounters a force as low as 50 Newton. This allows the robot to be used without expensive safety guarding (after prior risk assessment).

Improve product quality: It requires superhuman abilities to dose exactly the same quantity of glue constantly. However, UR3 can maintain consistent pressure at all times. Ensure uniform quality, reduce production costs and optimise your operation.

Infinite rotation: Simply mount a bit holder on the end joint of the UR3 robot arm, which can rotate infinitely, and avoid adding expensive tooling in the assembly process. The robot picks up screws, mounts them, and tightens them applying the correct torque.
