COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS

Rethink Robotics™ creates collaborative robots for the manufacturing industry that are different: robots that anyone can use, any company can afford, and that require no programming.

Product Solutions

Sawyer

Sawyer is the revolutionary collaborative robot designed to execute tasks that have been impractical to automate with traditional industrial robots. Sawyer gives manufacturers the high performance automation they need, while maintaining the flexibility, safety and affordability synonymous with the Rethink brand.

Sawyer features a 7 degree of freedom robot arm with a 1260 mm reach that maneuvers into tight spaces and operates in work cells designed for humans. Built-in force sensing capabilities allow it to make adaptive decisions as tasks run, enabling Sawyer to work precisely (+/- .1 mm), while operating safely next to people.

Intera-5

Rethink Robotics’ first-of-its-kind Intera software platform provides critical data insights to manufacturers in real time. Rethink Robotics’ Sawyer™ gives operators and line managers valuable data at a glance, including metrics such as cycle time, part count, speed and force.

Intera Insights, displays key performance indicators (KPIs) via a customizable dashboard on the robot’s on-board display, making it accessible directly on the factory floor.

Embedded-Vision

The combination of Intera 5 and embedded vision allows Rethink’s Sawyer to operate much like a human. Sawyer leverages Cognex’s industry-leading expertise in machine vision. With no additional hardware, software or integration costs, the robot can now identify parts and pick much like a human, reducing the high cost of fixturing for part presentation.
