In response to the “three elements” of high-quality development of the manufacturing industry, Universal Robots drives R&D innovation with customer insights
The Twentieth National Congress of the Communist Party of China (“Twentieth National Congress”) was a complete success recently. The Congress once again emphasized that high-quality development should be the primary task of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way. One of the important tasks of high-quality development is to build a modern Industrial system, promote new industrialization, and accelerate the construction of a manufacturing powerhouse and a digital China.Based on the deep understanding of customer needs in the process of product development for many years, Denmarkcollaborative robotUniversal RobotsrobotIt is clearly observed that the high-quality development of industrial manufacturing is inseparable from three major elements: technological innovation, talent base, and green path.
Adam Sobieski, President of Universal Robots Greater China, said: “China has always been a strategic location for Universal Robots, and Universal Robots firmly believes that our collaborative robots can be made for China in terms of technology, talents, and low carbon. Provide all-round support for the high-quality development of the industry. So far, Universal Robots has sold more than 50,000 collaborative robots around the world. The huge installed capacity has enabled us to accumulate a lot of first-hand user demand feedback, and we can continuously iterate products based on real feedback , so as to ensure that the needs of high-quality development of the industry are truly met.”
Technology-driven digital intelligence upgrade of manufacturing industry
One of the essentials of high-quality development is the continuous improvement of efficiency. In the era of digital intelligence, the improvement of production efficiency is undoubtedly inseparable from the drive of automation and other technological means. In the process of embracing automation, more and more companies are turning their attention to collaborative robots, which first benefit from their safe, flexible and convenient technical features.
with traditionalIndustrial robotDifferently, collaborative robots can directly interact with employees in close range, matching existing work cells and workstations, without additional safety fences. The installation and operation of the collaborative robot is also very convenient, and it can be flexibly and quickly redeployed and switched tasks in multiple production lines, and even operators with no programming experience can use an intuitive and convenient interface with a little training. Quick setup and operation. This means that the company does not need to change the existing plant layout, nor does it need to hire programming talents for this purpose, but it can respond more quickly to the diverse and changing needs of the market while improving operational safety.
The above advanced technical features are the ultimate manifestation of the product research and development capabilities of collaborative robot companies, and their importance is self-evident, but in the final analysis, the prerequisite for the effective implementation of any technical capabilities must be to accurately point to customer needs. Therefore, collaborative robot companies must continue to innovate and iterate based on real feedback from customers in order to build a solid barrier to competition and continuously inject new momentum into the development of the industry.
The new product UR20 launched by Universal Robots earlier this year is the latest example of its full response to user feedback. Universal Robots launched UR20 because it clearly observed the urgent needs of customers around the world: customers want a robot with a payload of 20 kg, but at the same time do not want to sacrifice other performance due to the increased load.Based on this observation, Universal Robots isrobotic armCompletely restructured, this is also the biggest design refresh of Universal Robots for joints. In the end, the UR20 collaborative robot has achieved innovative breakthroughs in load capacity and operating range. While achieving a large load of 20KG and a working radius of 1750 mm, the repeat positioning accuracy is as high as ±0.05 mm, redefining the collaborative robot.

Empowering high-quality talents to update their skills
Obviously, high-quality talents are an important basis for high-quality development. General Secretary Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasized in recent years that it is necessary to speed up the training of a large number of high-quality laborers and technical and skilled personnel. The “Twentieth National Congress” also once again pointed out that it is necessary to strengthen the support of talents in modernization, insist on respecting labor, respecting knowledge, respecting talents, and respecting creation, and speed up the construction of the world’s important talent centers and innovation highlands.
Behind the government’s focus on the training of manufacturing talents is the difficulty in recruiting and employing workers that the global manufacturing industry is facing.Take welding as an example. In July 2022, the Ministry of Human Re
