As the UK authorized integrator for Universal Robots, RNA work closely with Universal Robots to provide collaborative robot solutions to our customers.

Universal Robots have developed highly flexible, easily programmable, high quality but low-cost collaborative robot arms that can be used in almost any industry. Unlike traditional industrial robots, which are big, expensive, and work inside safety enclosures, this new generation of collaborative robots is designed to be flexible, easy to program, and safe to operate near people.

The complete range of Universal Robots offers significant productivity and safety return in the industry for your automation investment.
