Universal Robots cobot videoClick image to enlargeWatch to learn how a family-owned machine shop uses a Universal Robots cobot to handle both welding and material handling tasks.

Flywheel Supply in Le Mars, Iowa, produces about 29,000 unique metal parts for antique machinery, steam and boiler controls, valves, and gauges, for both industrial and government applications.

The company moves a single UR5 cobot between an ActiNav automated bin picking application for machine tending and TIG welding applications to drive productivity and help the company compete nationally and globally.
