Yu 5 Industrial from Agile Robots AG receives TÜV SÜD certification

Munich, 14.02.2024 – The high-tech company Agile Robots announces that TÜV SÜD has officially confirmed and certified the safety of the lightweight robot Yu 5 Industrial. The robot arm meets internationally recognized quality and safety standards that guarantee safe use in industrial environments. 

The certification norms IEC 61508, ISO 13849-1 and ISO 10218-1 are specifically geared towards industrial robot applications. In particular, the certificate attests to the safety of the robot controller, which utilizes state-of-the-art safety functions such as power and force limitation and safe collision detection for industrial and collaborative applications. The certification also attests that strict quality and safety controls were adhered to during the development and manufacturing of the robots.   

"The safe use of our robots is our top priority. Following the certification of our software, we are excited to share that our hardware is now certified as well. I am not only proud of the certificate, but also of the great team that we have built up here over the last three years," explains Andreas Spenninger, Head of Industrialisation & Safety Manager.  

Dr. Detlev Richter, Vice President and Global Head of Industrial and Energy Products at TÜV SÜD Product Service: "Our TÜV SÜD HRC robot certification process is based on the testing of all necessary standards in the required depth on the test object and includes the correct interaction of all systems and the complete consideration of the functional safety of the robot system. Our standardized and transparent assessment framework as the basis for certification is an important building block for the safe use of Yu 5 Industrial robots in a wide range of industries." 

"Thanks to the TÜV SÜD certification, the Yu 5 Industrial can now be used even more efficiently in industrial applications. It validates not only the safe use, but also the quality of our ultra-modern lightweight robot. We look forward to delivering the Yu 5 Industrial from Bavaria to all corners of the world," says Dr. Zhaopeng Chen, CEO of Agile Robots.  

Produced in Kaufbeuren, Bavaria, the cobot Yu 5 Industrial is an industrial-grade robotic solution equipped with torque sensors in all 6 axes and a built-in intelligent camera. Its versatility makes it suitable for deployment in different industrial branches.
