With the UR+ Partner Program, Universal Robots launched the world’s first ecosystem of third-party end-effectors and other add-ons for collaborative robots. This business model was not the only path UR could have chosen to complete its robotic arms, so why did they select this route? How does the UR+ ecosystem benefit end use customers? How does it help manufacturers of end-effectors such as grippers?
In this whitepaper, we examine these questions while presenting a fuller picture of the UR+ program itself.
