URCap Plugins to Integrate Accessories and End-Effectors with Universal Robots

We develop Universal Robots plugins (URCaps) for manufacturers of cobot accessories and end-effectors, such as grippers, scanners, and screwdrivers. URCaps are software applications that can be installed on any Universal Robots cobot, extending their capabilities. These plugins enable end-customers to seamlessly integrate and operate various robot accessories with Universal Robots, facilitating complex automation processes with ease. Additionally, URCaps provide manufacturers of cobot accessories with access to the robust Universal Robots UR+ sales channel.
