UR5 Keep Out zone / Working Area


The UR5 robot halts if the robot has to perform movements which are close to the origin. There is a cylindrical region around the origin that delineates this area. Does anyone have the exact size of this “keep-out” region? We’d like our software to bypass this region.



UR5 CB3 working area drawing is available here.

In general, it should be avoided to perform linear motions through this area, however most MoveJ motions are possible.
