Brand NEW Universal Robots UR10E
UNIVERSAL ROBOTS UNVEILS ENHANCED UR10E WITH 25% GREATER PAYLOAD
Universal Robots’ best-selling robot UR10e is launching with an increased payload, enabling the cobot to serve even more applications and handle heavier items while improving overall productivity for customers.
Universal Robots (UR) is launching an enhanced UR10e with an increased payload of 12.5kg (27.55lbs), creating new possibilities for applications such as palletizing, machine tending, and packaging. The robot’s price remains unchanged.
“Universal Robots is committed to continuous improvement based on meaningful conversations with customers and our ability to address critical market opportunities. Our customers have already deployed UR cobots on a wide variety of palletizing applications. Over time, they have identified opportunities to utilize our UR10e cobot in handling tasks with heavier items,” says Kim Povlsen, President of Universal Robots. “In response to this demand, we have enhanced the UR10e to support greater payloads, providing customers with exciting new deployment capabilities.”
The enhanced UR10e retains the small footprint, intuitive programming experience, uncompromising repeatability, commitment to quality, and trusted performance that Universal Robots customers have come to expect, but its increased payload capacity means that users can now do more:
- The UR10e can now be used in palletizing applications with cartons weighing up to 10kg and a 2.5kg gripper.
- The UR10e is now more versatile for other material handling tasks, too, such as loading and unloading heavier workpieces in machine tending deployments and packaging of heavy items.
- The enhanced UR10e’s greater payload takes more weight from the hands and shoulders of humans, leading to improved ergonomics and working conditions. With overexertion and repetitive motion accounting for an estimated 24% and 8% of workplace injuries respectively in the U.S. alone, this provides significant relief to human workers.
“Humans are not designed to lift heavy goods repeatedly, but our cobots handle these tasks with ease. By taking over unergonomic activities, UR cobots boost productivity, improve product quality, and help businesses rethink how to best use the creative and problem-solving abilities of their workforce –all while keeping people safe,” says Kim Povlsen.
Watch how MBO will use the enhanced UR10e in its Cobo-Stack solution.
Feedback from UR partners has been extremely positive; MBO Postpress Solutions in Germany has integrated the UR10e as part of its CoBo-Stack stacking cobot. “Increasing the payload of the UR10e will make our MBO CoBo-Stack much more profitable for our customers by expanding their application possibilities to include larger packages and heavier products, such as perfect bound or saddle stitched catalogues and brochures,” says Sebastian König, Head of Research & Development at MBO Postpress Solutions GmbH.
In addition, the updated UR10e also provides plug-and-play compatibility with products from Universal Robots’ UR+ ecosystem of hardware and software peripherals, ensuring that users can quickly and easily get started with collaborative applications.
Robotiq is one of numerous UR+ partners developing palletizing solutions based on UR10e cobots
Nicolas Lauzier, Senior Product Manager at Robotiq comments: “The greater payload of UR10e makes a big difference to palletizing applications by enabling users to handle loads up to 12.5kg in weight. And with 25% greater automation potential, it also means that the UR10e can help whenever there is a single line that needs to palletize a wide range of products of different weights.”
Orders can be placed with UR distributors globally now, with shipments of the new UR10e scheduled to start in the second half of June.

The new standard in universal turning – DMG MORI CLX 450 TC
When market demands change, then DMG MORI develops a brand new defined universal turning machine. DMG MORI CLX 450 TC main feature is B-AXIS factor which requires numerous advantages such as tools for turning and milling operations, increased tool capacity, complete workspace measuring, flexible automation ability and of course improved safety. Let’s take a closer look.
Next to B-AXIS there are many more highlights. One of them is tool handling that provides high tool capacity up to 60 tools and fast chip-to-chip times of under 7 seconds. Also, CLX 450 TC has a huge working area which makes operation possibilities way more flexible thanks to 1,100 mm turning length and 400 mm turning diameter. Another new feature is cutting performances thanks to main and counter spindle as integrated spindle motors with 5.000 rpm and 345 Nm for max.
The added value to every universal turning machine:
✓ Tool magazine with 30 or 60 tools for highest flexibility
✓ Minimal set-up and idle times thanks to multitools and sister tools
✓ Eccentric turning and milling with the Y-axis as standard
✓ No angular tools needed thanks to interpolation of the B-Axis (0,001° resolution)
✓ Maximum usability of the working area with compactMASTER spindle
However, CLX 450 TC is customizable as well. For example Technology Cycles option which dialog-guided programming of complex operations increases your productivity and Tool Measuring option that allows measuring of fixed and rotating tools outside of the working area protected against chips.
