This answer from Festo, based on the corporate, lowers buyer engineering time and speeds startup because it arrives prepared to put in. 

Cobot functions are deliberately easy to configure and function. This multi-axis system isn’t any totally different. No programming is concerned in arrange and no extra PLC is required. Multi-axes are configured by means of the UR HMI.
