To celebrate the sale of 25,000 cobots worldwide, Universal Robots is giving away its first and only Gold Edition cobot, shipped free of cost, to the lucky customer who orders the 25,000th cobot. With its joints painted in a rich, gold-coloured finish, this Gold Edition cobot is a refreshing take on Universal Robots’s iconic blue and grey cobots and will be available in the UR3, UR5 or UR10 model.
“With this historic milestone, we celebrate not just the success of Universal Robots in empowering customers, but also the successes of our customers in innovating and changing their workplace with collaborative robots,” said Jürgen von Hollen, President of Universal Robots.
“The Gold Edition robot reflects our continued commitment towards making the unlimited potential of robotics accessible for all.”
Since the launch of the first cobot in December 2008, Universal Robots’ cobots have been utilised in industries ranging from food production to scientific research, taking on tasks that include industrial assembly, pick and place and even quality inspections.
To date, the company has sold more than 21,000 robots and is viewed as the global industry leader with the world’s largest base of installed cobots.
Unlike conventional robotic solutions, Universal Robots’ cobots are designed to work hand-in-hand with operators with maximum efficiency, opening up more opportunities for human-robot collaboration in the workplace.
These highly versatile cobots can take on a wide spectrum of tasks and have the fastest payback time in the industry, making them a viable option for small-scale businesses where conventional options may be too expensive.
By bringing together human ingenuity and the high level precision of robotic automation, Universal Robots has been, and will continue to transform automation across the globe, one cobot at a time.
