Case Studies



For years, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions researched the market in vain, trying to find a robot suitable for their production needs. Universal Robots turned out to be the solution they were looking for. Up until then, Trelleborg had no robots involved in its annual production of millions of products.
But when the solution was found, things really took off. In 1.5 years, the factory has installed 38 UR5 robots and 4 UR10 robots followed by swift gains in productivity; orders have risen so sharply that 50 new employees were needed at the factory in Helsingør, Denmark despite the arrival of the new robot colleagues.

• Solved restricted space challenge as the robots can operate without shielding at Trelleborg
