Sept. 11, 2016 – IMTS 2016 will be the North American launch pad for Universal Robots+, a showroom of plug and play application solutions, and +YOU, a free developer program, for Universal Robots.

 
With Universal Robots+, the company says it creates its own eco-system enabling applications revolving around the collaborative robot arms UR3, UR5 and UR10 to be developed and showcased. The so-called URCaps, accessory components that extend the UR robots’ capabilities, can be customized hardware components, software plug-ins, or a combination of both. The aim of Universal Robots+ is to reduce implementation periods, increase user comfort and reduce costs for all parties involved, it notes. After verification of the URCaps by Universal Robots, the developers will receive access to the +YOU online forum, where they can exchange questions and ideas.
