May 15, 2018 – Stäubli Robotics and Schneider Electric have further developed their partnership by signing a long-term agreement to integrate customized Stäubli TS series, four-axis SCARA robots into EcoStruxure Machine, Schneider’s IoT-enabled, open and interoperable system architecture and platform. Named Lexium STS series, the robots are described as being fully integrated into the architecture of Schneider Electric’s PacDrive motion control solution.

Stäubli Robotics develops specialized robotics solutions for various industries, includ­ing electronics, medical, automotive, food, plastics processes, mechanics and painting. It offers a line of four-axis TP fast pickers and TS SCARA robots, as well as six-axis TX and TX2 collaborative robots.

“This cooperation is generating far-reaching benefits for both partners,” said Gerald Vogt, Group Division Manager, Stäubli Robotics. “We are excited to be working with Schneider Electric and to be able to benefit from its strong market positioning in industries such as machine building and to work together to bring our offers to machine builders that need complete automation solutions.”

“Our EcoStruxure architecture and platform is built on a foundation of openness which is reinforced by this partnership,” said Ali Haj Fraj, SVP Machine Solutions, Industry Business Schneider Electric. “Integrating Stäubli robotics will accelerate the execution of EcoStruxure Machine, our machine-centric automation architecture that enables machine builders to design smart machines through advanced digital technologies and open standards and so reduce their time-to-market and engineering costs, while improving machine performance.”
