Speedy Robotics and Common Robots (UR) simply introduced a brand new partnership. UR, a Danish firm that makes collaborative robots (cobots), will provide Speedy Robotics with collaborative robotic arms in order that it may arrange cobot work cells throughout North America. Which means Speedy Robotics will be capable to serve extra prospects and hold the fast deployment occasions that prospects have come to count on, whilst Speedy Robotics continues to develop throughout the nation.
“Because the variety of unfilled, essential manufacturing roles will increase and international financial uncertainty continues to affect provide chains, an increasing number of North American producers are turning to automation,” stated Jordan Kretchmer, CEO and Co-Founding father of Speedy Robotics. “This collaboration with UR helps us deploy extra cobots, with a greater diversity of capabilities, at a quicker fee, in the end serving to producers of all sizes and shapes handle and even thrive via the adversity they’re going through.”

Speedy Robotics is built-in with and might use any cobot from the UR product line. This makes it potential so as to add new capabilities like palletizing, field constructing and packing, and duties that want a heavier payload or longer attain. Speedy Robotics will even be capable to construct work cells and select peripheral tools with extra freedom.
Collectively, Speedy Robotics and UR additionally velocity up cobot deployments in new methods. UR’s two-week ship program is among the quickest within the trade, and Speedy Robotics’ highly effective mixture of state-of-the-art AI, superior imaginative and prescient programs, and a novel software program stack means robots will be up and working in buyer services in a matter of weeks as an alternative of the same old months to years.
“Common Robots has spent the final decade in North America targeted on releasing up extra manpower by automating a variety of human-scale duties with easy-to-deploy cobots,” says Bryan Chicken, Common Robots’ Regional Gross sales President. “We’re excited to work with Speedy Robotics in a partnership that can allow us to interrupt down extra automation limitations, deploying a robotic workforce to deal with these jobs producers merely can’t workers.”
In 2022, UR introduced in $326 million, a 5% enhance in annual income from 2021 and a 12% development on a relentless foreign money foundation. UR is a part of the robotics division at Teradyne and delivered $85 million in gross sales in This fall 2022, down from $97 million in This fall 2021.
An enormous change for each new and previous Speedy Robotics prospects is that there at the moment are extra methods and issues that may be automated. Current prospects who need to develop their companies or fill open positions for machine operators can automate much more of their strains with UR’s cobots, which have new options. Speedy Robotics’s expanded product line makes automation simpler and quicker to start out for brand new prospects than ever earlier than.
