Introducing the new Universal Robots UR16e

A rugged and reliable robotic arm built for high payload applications. Built to do more, it's ideal for heavy-duty machine tending and material handling.

Let the UR16e do the heavy lifting for your business. The Universal Robots UR16e opens up new applications possibilities with industry-leading 16 kg (35.3 lb) payload capacity. Using the same easy-to-use programming interface of the award-winning e-series family, the new cobot delivers superior speed, reliability and safety to relieve your workforce of handling heavy tools and products. Automate labor-intensive applications like palletizing and packaging, screw and nut driving, machine tending and material handling of heavier loads while increasing your factory throughput and efficiency with the UR16e.




Heavy Payload.

The UR-16e is a 6-axis robot arm system with a working radius of 900 mm / 35.4 in, and a payload of 16 kg / 35.3 lbs. With user friendly software, the cobot can be easily and rapidly programmed to perform new tasks. Weighing only 33.1 kg / 73 lbs, the UR-16e can be quickly moved around in production areas and used in many different applications.
