Our History

In 1989 Randy Luster sold his first robotic cell while working at a welding supply company. A few years later he took the plunge and opened his own business, which he named ARC Automation. The ARC stood for Advanced Robotic Concepts. Along with robotics he focused on delivering tooling and hard automation for the welding industry.

Fast forward to 2010. Randy and his company joined forces with a large independent welding supplier in an effort to serve a broader market segment and add team members. Aaron Wright, a welding inspector and process specialist was intrigued and began working solely on robotic integrations.

Aaron and Randy then began implementing more complex tooling capabilities involving servo drives, water cooling, human machine interfaces (HMI), hydraulic clamping, and part sensing. These capabilities set the company apart in a field already rife with innovation.

In early 2014 the small team formed a partnership and opened their own business; United Robotics Inc. URI is a company marked by its devotion to the utilization of Industrial Robotics for pragmatic solutions when welding, cutting, grinding, machining, material handling, marking, and testing.
