UR-5e Universal Robot

The lightweight, highly flexible, and collaborative UR-5e industrial robot arm lets you automate repetitive and dangerous tasks with payloads of up to 5 kg.

The UR-5e flexible robot is ideal to optimize low-weight collaborative processes, such as picking, placing and testing.


With a working radius of up to 33.5 ins (850mm), the UR-5e collaborative robot puts everything within reach, freeing up your employees’ time to add value to other stages of production.

The UR-5e robot from Universal Robots is easy to program, offers fast set-up, is collaborative and safe, and like our other collaborative robots, offers one of the fastest payback times in the industry.
