Automating Systems for Sheet Metal Forming, Kollmorgen
29 Jun 2020

An Italian-based machine builder, supporting over 1,500 factories worldwide with manufacturing solutions for chimney pipes, air conditioning, automotive, and medical-pharmaceutical applications, wanted to position their new machine to take advantage of the growing market trend of increasing variation in pipe shapes and sizes. Kollmorgen engineers suggested a direct drive approach to eliminate the productivity limitations of the gears and belts, including the resulting system compliance that prevents quicker moves and reduces cut quality.

UR 5 and UR 10 are the names of the two models with which Universal Robots aim to establish the flexibility of articulated arm robots in industrial production. The focus is on work areas in which conventional robots have thus far been too big, too expensive, and too loud. Due to their low weight they can be used wherever they are needed. A large part of the power density of the six-axis articulated robots comes from specially adapted KBM motors from Kollmorgen. Universal Robots was able to embed the motors directly into the articulation axes without need for additional housings.
