Typical applications for six-axis robots include welding, painting, assembly, pick and place, packaging and labeling, palletising, product inspection, and testing; all accomplished with high endurance, speed, and precision.

Industrial six-axis robots are generally used for very high speed and heavy payload applications, and are typically deployed to a fixed task or application.

Collaborative six-axis robots (cobots) are an affordable and flexible automation option for working alongside humans, often without the requirement for additional guarding.

Reynolds Group offers both industrial six-axis robots though Omron Adept and the world’s best-selling cobots – Universal Robots.

Universal Robot UR3e

3kg Payload Cobot

The UR3e cobot is a smaller collaborative table-top robot, perfect for light assembly tasks and automated workbench scenarios.

The compact table-top cobot weighs only 11 kg, but has a payload of 3 kg, 360-degree rotation on all wrist joints, and infinite rotation on the end joint. These unique features make the UR3e cobot one of the most flexible, lightweight collaborative table-top robot to work side-by-side with employees in the market today.

The UR3e collaborative robot is an optimal assistant in assembly, polish, glue, and screw applications requiring uniform product quality. The collaborative table-top robot can also be used in a separate workstation mounted on the table, picking, assembling, and placing parts in optimised production flows.

Because of its compact form and easy programming, it’s easy to switch it between tasks to meet agile manufacturing needs, resulting in low total cost of ownership and an ultra-fast payback period.

UR3e Features

  • Reach: 500 mm
  • Payload: 3 kg
  • Footprint: 128 mm
  • Weight: 11.2 kg

Universal Robot UR5e

5kg Payload Cobot

Universal Robots are built with versatility and adaptability in mind. Lightweight, easily programmable and highly customisable, the UR5e is designed to integrate seamlessly into any production facility regardless of industry, size or product nature.

The lightweight, highly flexible, and collaborative UR5e industrial robot arm lets you automate repetitive tasks with payloads of up to 5 kg. The UR5e flexible robot is ideal to optimise low-weight collaborative processes, such as picking, placing, and testing.

With a working radius of up to 850mm, the UR5e collaborative robot puts everything within reach, freeing up your employees’ time to add value to other stages of production.

The UR5e robot is easy to program, offers fast set-up, is collaborative and safe, and offers a quick payback period.

UR5e Features

  • Reach: 850 mm
  • Payload: 5 kg
  • Footprint: 149 mm
  • Weight: 20.6 kg

Universal Robot UR10e

10kg Payload Cobot

With the UR10e collaborative industrial robot arm, you can automate processes and tasks with payloads that weigh up to 12.5kg.

An extraordinarily versatile collaborative industrial robot, the UR10e delivers both high payload (12.5 kg) lift and long reach (1300mm) which makes it well suited for a wide range of applications in machine tending, palletising, and packaging.

The UR10e empowers future-ready change agents with collaborative innovations, a human centric UX, and an ecosystem for every application. Transform ambitions into results by changing the way things are made with the most flexible automation platform.

UR10e Features

  • Reach: 1300 mm
  • Payload: 12.5 kg
  • Footprint: 190 mm
  • Weight: 33.5 kg

Adept Viper

5kg Payload Robot

The speed and precision of Adept Viper six-axis robots make them ideal for operations requiring fast and precise automation.

The Adept Viper six-axis robot is a high-performance articulated robot ideal for assembly, material handling, packaging, machine tending, and many other operations requiring speed and accuracy in a 650mm or 850mm reach.

  • Rapid deployment using familiar ladder logic programming languages of existing PLC (IEC 61131-3).
  • Diagnostics display enables faster trouble shooting.
  • Ethernet TCP/IP capability to control the robot through a PC, PLC, or robot controller.
  • High-resolution, absolute encoders to provide high accuracy, superior slow-speed following, and easy calibration.
  • High-efficiency, low-inertia harmonic drives and a lightweight arm to deliver maximum acceleration.
  • Maximum payload 5kg.
