Universal Robots (UR) has revolutionised the automation industry with the launch of a showroom of Plug & Play application solutions.

Known as Universal Robots+  this newly launched showroom offers a new level of simplicity for companies that are installing the UR robot application.

Both distributors and end users have a choice to select from accessories, end-effectors, and software solutions from Universal Robots+.

These solutions will provide them with high security and predictability that applications will run well from the start. UR has also launched +YOU, a unique, free-of-charge developer programme, offering a powerful marketing and support platform for the eco-system of UR-robot application developers.

"Universal Robots+ enables us to create an unmatched win-win-win situation for the developer community, our distribution partners and our end customers," said Esben H. Østergaard, CTO and co-founder of Universal Robots.

Developing applications

Universal Robots+ enables the development of applications that revolve around the co-bot arms UR3, UR5, and UR10.

This showroom aims to reduce implementation periods, increase user comfort and reduce costs for all parties involved.

Entering the Universal Robots+ community is easy and all developers have to do is to complete a few steps to get their application solutions featured in the Universal Robots+ showroom.

Registration is free in the +YOU community forum, where developers are invited to submit their application ideas. Both Universal Robots+ and the +YOU forum are currently accessible online.

"Participants in the developer programme +YOU will receive support from Universal Robots at no cost when developing URCaps," said Østergaard. "By integrating the accessory components showcased at the Universal Robots+ showroom, our distribution partners and end users reduce spending on application development and testing. In short, Universal Robots+ provides easy access to efficient, well-proven, and safe automation solutions that we elevate to the next level by collaborating with a crucial component: the developers of today and tomorrow.
