Rethink Robotics Rethink Robotics Rethink Robotics

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

Rethink robots know what you mean and do what you want—because they are Robots with Common Sense™.  They work side-by side with people, so employees can do their jobs better and companies can compete more effectively on the global stage. They adapt quickly and automatically to changing work environment, enabling you to turn your production lines quickly and manufacture with dramatically improved productivity.

Smart, collaborative robot for precision tasks

Sawyer robot more information Sawyer™, a single-arm, high-performance robot designed to execute machine tending, circuit board testing and other precise tasks that have historically been impractical to automate with traditional industrial robots.

Sawyer offers the same highly-touted safety, compliance and usability advantages of Baxter – including the iconic “face” screen, embedded sensors and train-by-demonstration user interface – while providing the smaller footprint and high precision performance needed for tasks that require significant agility and flexibility.  In addition, Sawyer runs on the Intera™ software system, the same extensible platform that powers Baxter, so it works like humans do by dynamically adapting to real-world conditions on the plant floor and integrating seamlessly into existing work cells.

Weighing only 19 kg (42 lbs), Sawyer features a 4kg (8.8 lb) payload, with 7 degrees of freedom and a 1-meter reach that can maneuver into the tight spaces and varied alignments of work cells designed for humans.  Its high-resolution force sensing, embedded at each joint, enables Rethink Robotics’ compliant motion control, which allows the robot to “feel” its way into fixtures or machines, even when parts or positions vary.  This enables an adaptive precision that is unique to the robotics industry and allows Sawyer to work effectively in semi-structured environments. 

In addition, Sawyer features an embedded vision system, which includes a camera in its head to perform applications requiring a wide field of view and a Cognex camera with a built-in light source in its wrist for precision vision applications.  Sawyer’s vision system enables the Robot Positioning System for dynamic re-orientation, and over time will support more advanced features that are inherent to the Cognex system, such as barcode scanning and object recognition.



Sawyer with Intera 5

Sawyer with Intera 5Intera 5 is a whole new approach to automation and the force behind Sawyer, the world’s fastest-to-deploy robots. Software is your bridge to the world of collaborative robots, and Intera allows anyone to become an expert. A graphical user interface enables existing personnel to create and modify robot tasks as needed. With the added browser-based Intera Studio, you can connect a laptop if you need to get into very complex aspects of deploying and redeploying the robot. 

Fastest to Deploy

Sawyer’s train- by- demonstration interface is the easiest to use in the industry and has revolutionized how quickly robots can be deployed on factory floors.

Redefining Automation

Intera 5Intera 5 has created the world’s first smart robot that can orchestrate key elements of the work cell, opening up new and affordable automation possibilities – helping customers work toward a smart factory, and providing a gateway to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for the first time.

Rethink's ClickSmart family of Gripper Kits, the latest Sawyer Accessories

ClickSmart Plate

ClickSmaart Plate

The ClickSmart Plate is the cornerstone of the ClickSmart family – its quick release mechanism lets you swap end-effectors in seconds, without using any tools. Embedded sensors store the configuration of the connected end-effector when the ClickSmart Plate is attached to a Sawyer collaborative robot. It immediately recognizes the type of end-effector and knows how to control it.
