The company is headquartered in Odense, Denmark where all development and production is carried out. Since the first UR robot entered the market in December 2008, the company has seen substantial growth with the user-friendly, collaborative robots now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide through a global distribution network. Average payback period for UR robots is the fastest in the industry with only 195 days. Products UR robots automate production even in small operations where robotics is viewed as costly and complex. Programming is done through intuitive touch screen, eliminating need for skilled programmers - simply grab the robot arm to show it the desired movement, or use the arrow keys on the handheld touch screen. Due to the robots' light weight and simple programming, they are easily moved around to complete both detailed, high volume and short run packaging tasks. Unlike traditional industrial robots, a UR robot can be used directly alongside humans with no safety guarding after risk assessment; innovative force-sensing technology enables the robot to stop operating if it comes into contact with an employee. Of the more than 4,000 UR robots now in operation globally, 80% of these operate with no safety guard. The product portfolio includes the collaborative UR3, UR5 and UR10 robot arms named after their payloads in kilos. The six-axis robot arms have a reach of up to 51.2" with a repeatability of +/- .004". Recent developments The Danish robot manufacturer has just been acquired by Teradyne, a leading supplier of automated test equipment used to test semiconductors, wireless products, data storage, and complex electronic systems. 2015 also saw the launch of the UR3, which is the world's most flexible, lightweight table-top robot to work alongside humans.
