Universal Robots, the Danish pioneer and market leader in collaborative robotics, is drawing on practical examples to show how companies can use versatile, easily integrated components to meet modern-day challenges head on. "Visitors to our stand will see for themselves that 'plug and produce' is already a reality, thanks to our online UR+ ecosystem," says Helmut Schmid, Managing Director of Universal Robots Germany GmbH and General Manager Western Europe. "It offers access to a constantly growing number of grippers, sensors, software and other accessories, which can all be implemented via plug and play. This reduces installation time and costs for automation solutions and thus makes them a realistic option, including for small and medium-sized companies."
Brand new in the UR+ range, and thus making their debut in Hannover, are a plug-and-produce camera from Sensopart and an electric gripper from Dahl, specially designed for collaborative applications. Like all UR+ components, they are both easy to integrate. Software from Octopuz is a further highlight for visitors, offering them the option to program their own applications offline. The apps can then be transferred to a UR robot for a live demonstration. The trade fair presentation is rounded off by a palletizing application, of particular interest for the logistics and packaging sectors, which are increasingly discovering the benefits of collaborative robotics.
