SICK is one of the world’s leading sensor manufacturers providing sensors and application solutions that create the perfect basis for controlling processes securely, safely, and efficiently.
Universal Robots is honored to be collaborating with SICK as part of the Universal Robots+ program. SICK’s commitment to intelligence, independence, innovation, leadership, people, and safety aligns with Universal Robots’ goals and vision to make collaborative robots accessible to companies of all sizes.
Mr. David Bäck, OEM Business Manager for Identification & Measuring Marketing & Sales at SICK, said they chose to develop an Inspector URCap for the Universal Robots+ platform because of the UR technology was a perfect match.
‘Both technologies focus on simplicity and ease of use and together this collaboration brings great benefits to all of our customers’.
The SICK Inspector URCap software provides easy integration between the Universal Robot and a SICK Inspector PIM60 2D vision sensor.
UR software version 3.3 allows for seamless interface integration. The SICK vision sensor is directly integrated via the cobot teach pendant. Accessing the functionality of the Inspector directly from the controller pendant makes it easier and faster for the person setting up the application.
The SICK Inspector URCap also supports extra data fields from the sensor to customize applications like quality inspections, which are critically important for many companies globally.
