Introducing the UR16e - the Latest Universal Robot Collaborative Robot With the Largest Payload to Date

Universal Robots introduced the new UR16e today!

The latest collaborative robot has a 16kg payload, UR's biggest ever.

"The utility of this collaborative industrial robot is unmatchable. The UR16e is built for heavy duty tasks like machine tending, material handling, packaging, material removal, and screw and nut driving applications.  It handles an exceptional 16 kg of payload that is especially useful for carrying heavy end of arm tooling and can lift multiple parts in a single pick, making tasks much more efficient by achieving shorter cycle times."

- Universal Robots
The UR16e has a 16kg payload at its full reach of 900mm, with ±0.05mm repeatability. It is ideal for heavier duty material handling or machine tending. 

Like all Universal Robots collaborative robots, the UR16e features easy, fast deployment and can handle dull or dirty or dangerous tasks that are not suitable or not safe for humans.
