Universal Robots forms alliance with Siemens’ TIA
The new interface will facilitate a “seamless integration process for machine builders and system integrators”. Universal Robots’ cobots will become part of the Simatic Robot Library within Siemens’ TIA environment through an interpreter interface, planned to be completed within the fourth quarter of 2021.
Mark Gray, country manager UK&I, comments: “Machinery and plant engineers, as well as manufacturers with large production facilities, will benefit from our cobots‘ TIA integration. Thanks to this new interface, they will soon be able to apply our cobots’ functional diversity, precision and repeatability within complex production lines, benefiting from all aspects of digitalised automation – from digital planning and integrated engineering to transparent operations.”
