The cobot used in both BotX and Cobot Welder is the Universal Robots UR10e. It has a maximum reach of approximately 51". Each joint has full 360º rotation.
The maximum speed of the cobot is approximately 1 meter per second. However, BotX and Cobot Welder utilize the built in safety controller of the Universal Robots UR10e to limit the maximum speed during welding to approximately 110 inches per minute.
