Hands-on awareness campaign on human-robot-collaboration successful at Hanover Trade Fair
Hanover Trade Fair 2017 saw UR’s new booth concept resonate with attendees as Universal Robots (Germany) GmbH presented turnkey solutions in collaboration with its sales and integration partners FAUDE, IIS Automation, Müller Maschinentechnik and Lorenscheit. On-site applications provided insights into the wide potential offered by our collaborative robot arms UR3, UR5 and UR10 – all featuring accessories from the Universal Robots+ developer ecosystem.
The numerous UR robot exhibits reflected the importance of our growing network of technology partners, many of whom also exhibited their own UR+ products optimized to work flawlessly with our robots.
“The sheer mass of applications revolving around our robots at Hanover clearly shows that Universal Robots counts as first choice when it comes to collaborative robot applications. There are many people out there, developing new equipment to optimize existing applications or even pave the way for entirely new scenarios,” says Jürgen von Hollen, President of Universal Robots, emphasizing the importance for UR to reach out to developers at trade fairs and beyond to recruit them into the Universal Robots+ ecosystem:
“We’re hoping to grow the platform to feature around 100 UR+ solutions by the end of 2017. In doing this, we create a universal toolbox, from which our customers can customize exactly the robot application they need.”
