Universal Robots and MiR Open New Robotics Hub in Denmark

Global robotics leaders Universal Robots (UR) and Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), both Teradyne Robotics companies, will share headquarters to increase synergies and accelerate innovation within advanced robotics.

Universal Robots, the Danish collaborative robot (cobot) company, and MiR, the Danish manufacturer of AMRs (autonomous mobile robots), recently celebrated the Grand Opening of their new 215,000 sq. ft. headquarters in Odense, Denmark. Partners from UR and MiR’s global ecosystems attended the event, including NVIDIA and Siemens, with whom Teradyne Robotics and its companies have recently announced several collaborations.

“The launch of this new headquarters marks a significant milestone for Teradyne Robotics as we bring together two leading companies in robotics innovation,” says Ujjwal Kumar, Group President of Teradyne Robotics. “We will now have the optimal environment to evolve our technological capabilities, which are already in high demand.”

On the new robotics hub, Jean-Pierre Hathout, President of MiR, said: “Our new headquarters is designed to foster innovation, providing the perfect setting for our teams to develop leading-edge solutions that will revolutionize automation. MiR is committed to being a one-stop-shop for material handling, continuously advancing our technology to meet the evolving needs of our large, global customers. Our recently launched AI-powered MiR1200 Pallet Jack exemplifies this dedication. I’m thrilled to witness the transformative impact of our endeavors and to showcase MiR’s and UR’s offerings to our customers and partners at this state-of-the-art facility.”

Kim Povlsen, President of Universal Robots, added: “Since our foundation, UR has become a platform of choice for thousands of customers and hundreds of ecosystem partners. This beautiful building reflects our strong design philosophy and provides the perfect location for us to continue our mission to deliver automation for anyone, anywhere.”

Universal Robots Announces Seamless Integration with Siemens PLCs

Universal Robots (UR), one of the world’s leading collaborative robot (cobot) companies, has now integrated the Standard Robot Command Interface (SRCI) into its software. UR is proud to be among the first cobot vendors to offer this functionality.

The SRCI is a new standard for robotics manufacturers that aims to create a single interface between PLCs and robots. The full integration of SRCI into UR’s software will enhance the connectivity capabilities of UR’s cobots and will ensure customers a frictionless integration with Siemens PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), since Siemens is the first – and currently only – PLC Vendor supporting SRCI in the automation market.
