Denmark based Universal Robots showcased its products at AeroDef India 2018 held at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre, Goregaon from February 22 to 24, 2018. Universal Robots are the pioneers in the manufacturing of advanced, user-friendly and light industrial Collaborative Robotics Arms (cobots). They have markets in the US, Europe and now expanded operations in India and South Asia.
“We are glad to have participated in AeroDef India 2018 as it has provided an extensive platform for Indian and international players of the defence and aerospace manufacturing industry. The Universal Robots’ robotic arms can automate virtually anything; from assembly to painting, picking and placing screw driving, labelling, packing, polishing, glueing, dispensing, deburring, grinding welding, palletizing, machine tending and injection moulding. Cobots can be used for dangerous applications, where the human workforce might be at risk. The collaborative robots can also be incorporated in the aerospace manufacturing industry for precision loading and unloading of aero components and CNC machines,” said Pradeep David, General Manager, Universal Robots, South Asia.
“The UR3 table-top robot is the perfect choice for light assembly tasks and jobs that call for absolute precision. With a 360-degree rotation on all wrist joints and infinite rotation on the end joint, the UR 3 is the most flexible, versatile and collaborative robots on the market today. The slightly bigger UR5 is ideal for automating low-weight processing tasks like picking, placing and testing. The medium-sized robot arm offers one of the fastest payback times in the industry. The UR10, being the largest robot arm in the UR family will automate heavier weight process tasks with payload requirements of up to 10 kg,” Universal Robots said in a statement.
The AeroDef India expo provided an exclusive platform for Indian and International Aerospace and Defence manufacturers to source raw materials, components, sub-assemblies and finished products and subcontract essential manufacturing processes like forging, machining, moulding, material development to Indian MSMEs.
