Rotalec Introduces Sawyer: The High Performance Collaborative Robot!



Sawyer is the revolutionary collaborative robot (COBOT), from Rethink Robotics, 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 flexibility, safety and affordability.

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.

An All-In-One Solution

That’s the Rethink difference – a collaborative robot manufacturer that provides a complete integrated COBOT solution, along with world-class customer support.

Fast to Deploy

Rethink Robotoc’s software-driven robots, combined with the ClickSmart family of gripper kits, allow their robots to be deployed faster, in more tasks and applications, and without time-consuming customization.

Force Sensing

With Sawyer’s built in force sensing, you can control force where delicate part insertion is critical, or use force feedback in tasks where you need to verify that parts are seated properly.

Embedded Vision

Sawyer is equipped with an embedded vision system – an industrial camera in its wrist that enables the Robot Positioning System and other complex vision tasks.

Small Footprint, Long Reach

With 7 degrees of freedom and a 1260 mm maximum reach, Sawyer fits into work cells already designed for people, and it can maneuver into tight spaces, much like a human arm.

Certifiably Safe

While traditional industrial robots are kept behind cages, Sawyer is inherently safe, designed to work alongside people, and certified as meeting ISO requirements by TÜV Rheinland (ISO 10218-1:2011and PLd Cat. 3).
