Prior to performing any maintenance on a Universal Robots collaborative robot (cobot), it is highly recommended that you first acquire a UR Service Kit, part number 109010, which can be purchased from Cross Company by calling us at 888-987-5955. This kit will include all of the preset torque screwdrivers, torque wrenches, and other tools needed for any UR Joint replacement.
