New Danish Robot to Debut at IMTS

ODENSE, DENMARK-- The UR5 robotic arm manufactured by Universal Robots has been announced "The world's most innovative robot" by The International Federation of Robotics and IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. The United States audience will now see the award winning robot--along with its big brother UR10–for the first time at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in September.

"Many companies worldwide have invested in UR robots to save manpower, whereas others have used them to boost product quality or productivity,” says Universal Robot's CCO Thomas Visti. “Sometimes they are used in repetitive tasks to improve working conditions for employees. We see potential in all these applications in the US market."

Instead of sensor technology, the UR5 robotic arm utilizes a patented technology to measure electrical current in its joints to determine force and movement.

Universal Robots will be at booth E-4601 at IMTS in Chicago, Sept. 10-15, 2012.
