UR3, also known as UR3e, is a collaborative benchtop robot arm produced by Universal Robots. Part of the UR e-series, the UR3 is characterized by a compact design and 360° rotation on all arms, which makes it ideal for complex tasks in tight spaces. It gets where the UR5, UR10, and UR16 cannot. It is simple and fast to set up. You will be able to deploy it in half a day.

The UR3 is easy to program, even for unskilled employees. It features an intuitive interface and manual teaching to speed up the robot’s learning process. It is agile. It can be quickly redeployed to different applications in the same workflow allowing for fast change-overs. Also, it is capable of reusing a program in case of recurring tasks.

The UR3 is safe. It can work side-by-side with human operators doing dangerous, repetitive and dull activities. It features a safety system approved and certified by TÜV. It can stop when encountering a force of down to 50 Newton in its path (150 Newton default force sensing).

Sturdy and lightweight, it can lift up to 3 kg. It has been widely used by small businesses for light assembly automated activities and screw driving. Read the review for further specs.

Look at the picture. The UR3 is even capable of producing parts for itself. 

This machine vision-enabled cobot can recognize, pick and sort a variety of objects automating repetitive, pick-and-place activities.

Processing quality

UR3 is a flexible, 6-axis collaborative robotic arm. It features 0.1 mm repeatability. Weighing only 11kg, it withstands up to 3 kg. It features 360° rotation on all arm and infinite rotation on the end joint. Safe and reliable, it can perform even the most intricate tasks thanks to its flexibility and 6-degree freedom.



The UR3 is a universal robot. This means it can perform multiple tasks. Quick to program and extremely flexible, it provides fast change-overs, switching from one task to another in short times. It is capable of assembling and screwing parts, picking, placing, polishing and gluing. It delivers uniform product quality and finishing. 

The robot can be used for:

  • pick and place
  • injection molding
  • CNC machine tending
  • packaging and palletizing
  • quality inspection, lab analysis and testing
  • assembly and screw driving
  • polishing, gluing, dispensing and welding


Pick and place

UR3 lets you automate repetitive tasks boosting your production. Ideal for short-run production, it lets you employ workers in more important tasks. Computer vision allows quick and accurate recognition of parts for effective pick and place operations.


Injection molding

The arm can be used in plastic and polymer production. It can accurately handle any injection mold, a dangerous operation for human operators. Also, it can work autonomously, doing its job even when workers have gone home.


CNC machine tending

UR3 can take the place of human operators for machine tending operations, reducing the risk of injuries while speeding up the process.


Packaging and palletizing

Adopting a robotic arm for packaging and palletizing might be the right way to simplify and speed up the workflow improving your productivity. UR3 is capable of loading and packing products with extreme efficiency and accuracy. No more manual, heavy lifting. 


Quality inspection, lab analysis, and testing

The robot precision and movement repeatability grant consistency and uniform quality.  Indeed, they allow repeating the same job for hours with the same accuracy. Also, the integrated vision camera enables non-destructive testing and 3D measurements, immediately detecting faulty parts and other issues. These are fundamental features for quality inspection, lab analysis, and testing. 


Assembly and screw driving

The robotic arm can assembly parts of various materials, namely metals, woods, plastics, and etc. The infinite turn of the end joint and the force control are ideal for screw driving.


Polishing, gluing, dispensing and welding

Force control, flexibility, repeatability and accuracy enable consistent operation while delivering uniform product quality. They allow performing various tasks, including polishing buffing, sanding, gluing, dispensing and welding.


Working range

The arm has a working radius of up to 500 mm.


Robot controls

The UR3 is controlled via a handheld, touch screen tablet. 3D visualization enables easy programming. This means you can quickly reprogram and redeploy the cobot across multiple operations.
