UR5 vs Sawyer

Any UR5 users cross shop between the two?  I am interested in why one over the other?  Let me know what you guys think.  Thanks.

Hello d21x
I have both robots in my company (Universal and Sawyer)
Universal Pros: Can lift more payload than Sawyer.
Universal Cons: is not fast to get it program. And Can only do one Job at the time.

Sawyer Pros: Two Arms running two jobs simultaneously. Friendly to Program and Faster.
Sawyer Cons: Cost 1/3 over the cost of Universal and Fragile if you crash it.

I hope this gives you an idea to compare both.

alfamoto,

Thanks for the pros and cons. 

How is the support from UR and Rethink?  Were you able to get replacement parts fairly quick? 

You say Sawyer is fragile, did something break and how hard was it to replace?

Do you use any vision with the robots? 

Did you also consider a Fanuc CR robot?

Thanks.
