Electric Screwdriver PGF series and BLF series
certified as "UR+" products

The "PGF Series" and "BLF Series" of drivers for automatic machines have finally obtained product certification for the "UR+" peripheral device platform for cooperative robots manufactured by Universal Robots. The area of compatibility will start in Japan and gradually expand to the rest of the world. By utilizing cooperative robots from Universal Robots and the UR+ offered by Hios, users who have been manually tightening screws will be able to automate and help take their production performance to a new level. For those who have already automated, we will strongly support manufacturers to improve productivity, product quality, or worker safety.

Seamless control with a single teach pendant

At the same time, we will start providing plug-in software "HIOS-Fastening-System" for Universal Robots UR e series.
With a single UR teach pendant, you can seamlessly experience driver and robot control. UR's modern and intuitive operation solves the issues and barriers associated with automating the screw tightening process, with unprecedented high quality and precision screw tightening. For example, by controlling the thrust force using the force sensor that is standard on UR's collaborative robots, it is possible to improve the accuracy of screw tightening more accurately with a feeling close to that of a human hand.

UR+ Compatible Products Lineup

The long-popular screwdrivers for automatic machines have been rearranged and released for use with UR's cooperative robots. The lineup includes standard and high-end models with a wide range of precision torque settings from low torque to high torque. UR's modern and intuitive operation expands the degree of freedom for high-quality, high-precision screw tightening.
