Products: Acquire: Sight Machine enables companies to gain real-time visibility and actionable insights for every part, machine, line, and plant throughout a manufacturing enterprise. Our analytics platform enables manufacturers to use all of their data—no matter where or in what format it’s created. We do this with an automated and systematic data intake process that acquires, refines, and contextualizes data, creating a digital twin of each part and process. Analyze: Automatically prepares and contextualizes process and product data using artificial intelligence. Generates a Plant Digital Twin configured to mirror your manufacturing production. Applies machine learning and advanced analytics to surface anomalies and insights. Visualize: Uses analyzed data to present real-time visibility and actionable insights for every machine, line and plant across your entire enterprise. Sight Machine's Global Ops View and contextualized dashboards present the right information to the right people.

Universal Robotics

Description: Universal Robots produce a robotic arm which is characterized by being extremely flexible and easy to use in the day-to-day production. It differs from anything else in the market in the sense that it is lightweight, very easy to re-program for any non-robot expert and can be easily moved around in the production facilities. This enables the possibilities for small and medium sized companies to implement robots into the production, even though they do not posses the robot expertise inside the company. They can do everything themselves. And at low costs. Products: UR3 robot: UR3 is a new, smaller collaborative table-top robot for light assembly tasks and automated workbench scenarios. The compact table-top robot weighs only 24.3 lbs (11 kg), but has a payload of 6.6 lbs (3 kg), 360-degree rotation on all wrist joints and infinite rotation on the end joint. These unique features make UR3 the most flexible, lightweight, collaborative table-top robot to work side-by-side with employees in the market today. It’s an ideal choice for applications that require 6-axis capabilities where size, safety and costs are critical. The UR3 collaborative robot is an optimal assistant in assembly, polish, glue, and screw applications requiring uniform product quality. The new table-top robot can also be used in a separate work station mounted on the table, picking, assembling and placing parts in optimized production flows. Because of its compact form and easy programming, it’s easy to switch it between tasks to meet agile manufacturing needs making total cost of ownership low and payback period ultra fast. UR5 robot: The lightweight, flexible and collaborative industrial robot - UR5 - from Universal Robots lets you automate repetitive and dangerous tasks with payloads of up to 5 kg. The UR5 is ideal to optimize low-weight collaborative processes, such as: picking, placing and testing. With a working radius of up to 850mm, the UR5 collaborative robot puts everything within reach, freeing up your employees’ time to add value to other stages of the production. The UR5 from Universal Robots is very easy to program, offers fast set up, is collaborative and safe, and like Universal Robotics' other collaborative robots, offers one of the fastest payback times in the industry. UR10 robot: The Universal Robots UR10 is Universal Robotics' largest industrial robot arm, designed for bigger tasks where precision and reliability are still of paramount importance. With the indstrial robot arm - UR10 - you can automate processes and tasks that weighs up to 10 kg. Heavier-weight collaborative processes, such as: packaging, palletizing, assembly and pick and place are all well suited to the UR10 industrial robot. With a reach radius of up to 1300mm, the UR10 industrial robot is designed to be more effective at tasks across a larger area. You can therefore save time on production lines where distance can be a factor.
