Universal Robots

Auto Control Systems has partnered with Universal Robots to provide world class, industrial robotics systems, custom designed and installed for your unique applications. In most cases, these state of the art robots require no guarding or barriers between workers and the robot (pending a safety assessment), allowing greater freedom in application.  This freedom of interaction also greatly reduces the installation costs and allows for easier integration to existing systems, making the payback period short, especially when compared to traditional robotics solutions.

Traditionally, industrial robots have been an expensive solution to automation, requiring a large, protected space to work in, hours and hours of programming and often, major interference to production during the installation. This is where Universal Robots are different. With a much smaller footprint, lower costs across the board and no barriers or guarding necessary in many situations they are the world’s best light lift robot. Features like absolute encoding, TÜV certification and multiple IO channels make it arguably the most versatile and cost effective robot in the world.

The versatility of these robots is what makes them so useful to such a wide range of tasks. Each robot is so simple in its design and programming that they can even be installed and running in less than an hour, depending on your application. The intuitive programming interface is quite unique and makes changing tasks incredibly easy. Return on investment is always a determining factor in making a purchase such as this and for good reason – everyone needs to see performance and value immediately. The UR robots do just that. With an average payback period of 195 days*, the UR robots are a very cost effective way of increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Regardless of what industry you are in, Auto Control Systems can provide you with top-of-the-line robotics solutions to give your business a competitive edge. Our robotics experts are known for their attention to detail, allowing us to build customised solutions that perfectly address your specific needs. Moreover, our extensive training and practical experience assure you that all the projects we undertake are completed on time and on budget.
