The UR+ ecosystem explained
With the UR+ program, Universal Robots launched the world’s first ecosystem of third-party end-effectors and other add-ons for collaborative robots.
Turning to an ecosystem business model was not the only path we could have chosen to complete our robotic arms. Other companies make their own end-effectors, for example, instead of opening up to third parties.
- So why did we go the ecosystem route?
- How does the UR+ ecosystem benefit our customers?
- How does it help companies that produce end-effectors?
- And what do we think the future of our UR+ ecosystem will look like?
This paper will examine these questions, while also presenting a fuller picture of the UR+ program itself.
