Universal Robots’ golden giveaway

To celebrate the sale of 25,000 cobots worldwide, Universal Robots is giving away its first and only Gold Edition cobot, shipped free of cost, to the lucky customer who orders the 25,000th cobot.

With its joints painted in a gold-coloured finish, this Gold Edition cobot will be available in the UR3, UR5 or UR10 model.

“With this historic milestone, we celebrate not just the success of Universal Robots in empowering customers, but also the successes of our customers in innovating and changing their workplace with collaborative robots,” said Jürgen von Hollen, President of Universal Robots.

“The Gold Edition robot reflects our continued commitment towards making the unlimited potential of robotics accessible for all.”

Since the launch of the first cobot in December 2008, Universal Robots’ cobots have been utilised in industries ranging from food production to scientific research, taking on tasks that include industrial assembly, pick and place and even quality inspections.

As of March 2018, the company has sold more than 21,000 robots and is the global industry leader with the world’s largest base of installed cobots.
