Sawyer Cobot for Research and Education

If you are teaching robotics you should really consider installing a Sawyer collaborative robot.  Sawyer is the revolutionary collaborative robot designed to execute tasks that have been impractical to automate with traditional industrial robots.

Sawyer features a 7 degree of freedom robot arm with a 1260 mm reach and built-in force sensing capabilities allow it to make adaptive decisions while operating safely next to people.

Sawyer is considered the world’s fastest robot to train and deploy.

Rethink Robotics’ lntera 5 software is redefining the speed and ease with which manufacturers can effectively deploy automation. This new approach to automation is a gateway toward incorporating the Internet of Things (loT) in a meaningful way and the first step towards a smart factory environment.

The powerful software is the first of its kind to begin connecting everything from a single controller, extending the smart, flexible power of its robots to the entire work cell by simplifying automation and providing unparalleled time to deployment.

Intera 5 Feature Highlights:
  • Train By Demonstration
  • Intera Studio - laptop interface enabling more flexible and powerful experience.
  • Vision - use Sawyer’s Cognex camera to pick from static locations or a moving conveyor.
  • Force - push with user-specified force in any axis, and measure force in any axis.
  • Patterns - create grid/array of picks or places automatically in minutes.
  • Custom Logic & Error Handling - reduce need for a PLC with custom logic.
  • Multi End Effector Support - support for Rethink and 3rd party grippers.
  • Faster - robot runs faster and smoother with Intera 5.
  • Robot Positioning System - robot can now dynamically reregister itself mid-task.
