Following similar collaborative projects with Stäubli Robotics and Yaskawa Motoman , the Sepro Group has now reached another far-reaching agreement: the French supplier of robots and industrial automation for the plastics industry and the Danish collaborative robots (cobots) specialist, Universal Robots , announced their cooperative partnership in May 2019. The idea going forward is for Sepro’s control platform Visual to be integrated into the cobots from Universal Robots, and Universal Robots technologies to seamlessly integrate into other Sepro robots and injection molding machines, where required.
Sepro specifically developed the control platform Visual for robots used in plastic injection molding machines. All Sepro products, including the jointly marketed product lines of partners, are controlled by Visual and have the same user interface regardless of robot type. Sepro will provide the worldwide service for Sepro and Universal Robots solutions under the agreement.
