UR16e Heavy-Duty Payload Cobot

Nov. 8, 2019

The UR16e combines the high payload with a reach of 900 mm and poses repeatability of +/- 0.05 mm making it ideal for automating tasks such as heavy-duty material handling, heavy-part handling, palletizing, and machine tending. With UR16e, Universal Robots is introducing the highest payload and best pose repeatability in this reach class.


Developed on UR’s innovative e-Series platform, the UR16e offers immense benefits, capabilities, and value for manufacturers, including:

  • Fast and frictionless deployment with easy programming and a small footprint
  • UR16e makes accelerating automation easy and fast. Programming and integration are simple – regardless of the user’s experience or knowledge base. Like all UR’s cobots, UR16e can be unpacked, mounted and programmed to perform a task within less than an hour. With a small footprint and 900 mm reach, UR16e easily integrates into any production environment without disruption.
  • Addresses ergonomic challenges while lowering cost
  • With its 16 kg payload, UR16e eliminates the ergonomic and productivity challenges associated with lifting and moving heavy parts and products, lowering costs, and reducing downtime. 
  • Ideal for heavy-duty material handling and machine tending
  • Rugged and reliable, UR16e is ideal for automating high-payload and CNC machine tending applications, including multi-part handling, without compromising on precision.

Like with UR’s other e-Series cobots; UR3e, UR5e, and UR10e, the UR16e includes built-in force sensing, 17 configurable safety functions, including customizable stopping time and stopping distance, and intuitive programming flow. UR16e meets the most demanding compliance regulations and safety standards for unobstructed human-robot collaboration, including EN ISO 13849-1, PLd, Category 3, and full EN ISO 10218-1.
