Sepro Group and Universal Robots Announce New Cobot Partnership


Sepro Group, a global leader in robots and industrial automation for the plastic industry, and Universal Robots (UR), market leader in collaborative robots (cobots), have signed an agreement to collaborate within collaborative robotics and industrial automation.






Under the terms of this partnership between Sepro and UR, Sepro Group will integrate its Visual Control System with cobots supplied by UR. The Visual Control Platform was developed by Sepro especially for robots used in plastics injection-molding machines. All Sepro products, including co-branded lines, are controlled by Visual, providing the same user interface regardless of the type of robot.



“I am enthusiastic to announce this partnership, which will expand our already extensive portfolio. Moreover, I believe that the combination of Sepro Group’s know-how and the ground-breaking collaborative technologies developed by Universal Robots will allow our customers even greater flexibility and choice in how they approach automation in the plastic injection process,” says Jean-Michel Renaudeau, CEO of Sepro Group.

“我热烈宣布,双方正式达成合作关系,这将进一步拓展我们丰富的现有产品。此外,我相信,将Sepro集团的专业技术与优傲机器人独创开发的协作机器人技术结合起来,可以让我们的客户在注塑过程中实现自动化方面更加灵活,拥有更多的选择。”Sepro集团首席执行官Jean-Michel Renaudeau表示。


Jürgen von Hollen, President, Universal Robots, adds: “I am very excited about our new partnership with the Sepro Group targeting the plastic injection automation market. Sepro has extensive experience and knowledge about how to automate the manufacturing processes and Universal Robots is the market leader in collaborative robots. Together, the two companies will be able to provide efficient, safe and easy to use solutions for a wide range of customers within the plastic injection industry.”

优傲机器人总裁Jürgen von Hollen补充道:“非常高兴此次我们能与Sepro集团在注塑自动化市场上展开全新合作。Sepro集团在如何实现生产流程自动化方面拥有丰富的经验和知识,而优傲机器人是协作机器人市场的领导者。双方的合作可以为注塑行业的广大客户带来高效、安全、易用的解决方案。”


The new partnership solutions will allow Sepro Group to deliver the most extensive range of automation solutions to injection molders in the plastics industry. This portfolio includes Cartesian robots, 6-axis articulated-arm robots and now cobots. Like the 6-axis robot solutions, cobots are perfectly adapted to peripheral operations that are increasingly in demand in the plastics industry. By helping customers define the solution that really fits their needs, Sepro Group offers its customers the smartest industrial automation solutions.



Launching Operation Ready Cobots


By adding the renowned Visual Control to the leading cobot for the first time, Sepro Group guarantees seamless integration with UR’s technology and other Sepro robots and molding machines. This will allow customers to design safe, open configurations for various types of processes, including peripheral operations or advanced automation cells. The new solutions from Sepro and UR ensure shortened process-development times and faster installation, resulting in easy-to-deploy, easy-to-test post-processing operations and turn-key automation systems.



Under the terms of the agreement, Sepro will provide global services for solutions from Sepro and UR. With more than 150 experts and 42 service centers around the world, Sepro will be able to deliver local support and the same quality of service for cobots as it does on Cartesian and six-axis robots.



The solutions from Sepro and UR will be displayed on Sepro Group’s booth in Hall 12, A49, during K 2019, which takes place in Düsseldorf, Germany, October 16-23, 2019.
