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.
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, the latest smart collaborative robot from Rethink Robotics, gives manufacturers the high performance automation needed for precision tasks, while maintaining the crucial flexibility, safety and interactive user experience. Sawyer adapts to real-world variability and are agile enough to change applications quickly and perform tasks like humans do.
Intera® 5.2 is a first-of-its-kind software platform that 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 – data that has never before been available through a single collaborative robot vendor.
The new feature, 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. The same charts are also fed back to the Intera Studio platform, providing visibility to other members of the manufacturing team. Intera Insights drives more informed production decisions and saves manufacturers time and money by eliminating the need to invest in or create another data collection system
The ClickSmart™ family of gripper kits are a unique solution for end-of-arm tooling for Sawyer that incorporates smart sensing and rapid swapping capabilities, resulting in the first fully integrated robotic solution available on the market through a single vendor. Rethink's complete solution continues to simplify robot deployments. When the ClickSmart Plate is attached to any Sawyer robot, it will immediately recognize the type of end-effector and know how to control it.
