Denmark-based Universal Robots (UR) is gearing up to promote sales of its latest flagship e-Series collaborative robots in the Taiwan market to help local small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) accelerate their automation transformation.

Showcased at the just-concluded Taipei International Industrial Automation Exhibition, the e-Series collaborative robots feature additional force torque sensors that can automatically figure out actual load and gravity of each robot in accordance with the parameters of four fixed positions while also boosting the agility of the robot, according to PH Yang, president of UR Taiwan.

Yang said that UR hopes to help Taiwan SMEs materialize their automation transformation with the firm's cost-efficient e-Series collaborative robots. He disclosed Taiwan's Babo Arms, a bubble tea shop, has adopted UR's collaborative robots to handle repetitive juice mixing work, allowing employees to engage in more value-added jobs.

Also present at the exhibition, UR president Jurgen vo Hollen noted that the Industry 5.0 trend with collaborative robots as the core is continuing fermenting, and the designs of collaborative robots must meet such requirements as fast installation, flexible deployment, easy programming, and safety operations if the robots are to become reliable tools for manufacturers to quickly upgrade their production lines.
