Analog Devices is helping contribute to UR’s mission with deep expertise across various domains, and a portfolio of advanced system-level solutions for robotics technologies, including sensing, precision measurement, safety, communications, machine reliability, and power and size efficiencies.
ADI has built and grown a close relationship with UR since its founding (and with its parent company Teradyne). With similar missions of leveraging technology for the common good, ADI and UR are uniquely positioned to create life-altering technological advances that help transform workforces with their adoption of robots and cobots.
Leveraging ADI’s advancements in industry-leading technologies such as sensing, measurement and power, helped UR to optimize the shaft performance of each cobot’s joints, enabling better control and system functionality and increasing precision system control of the cobot. ADI’s system solutions helped to achieve the required cobot size, which was critical to pioneering safe robot operation alongside skilled human operators.
This high-level collaboration is resulting in UR being able to design smaller, smarter, and easier to use robots that help scale tasks more safely—especially tasks that are repetitive, physically intensive, or dangerous.
