Sawyer – collaborative robot

Elsta company introduces to its offer a smart collaborative robot Sawyer produced by the American company Rethink Robotics. The industry’s fastest-to-deploy robot designed to automate many production processes.

Powered by the Intera software platform and designed with embedded vision, ClickSmart grippers, and high resolution force control, Sawyer is a fully integrated collaborative robot solution. Sawyer has an arm with 7 degrees of reach and a length of 1260mm, able to operate in a small space, intended for the work of human hands. Built-in force sensors allow him to make decisions depending on changing conditions during the execution of tasks, precision work +/- 0.1mm and safe operation next to working people.

Sawyer is based on revolutionary Intera software platform which can be used by anyone – from non-programmers with no experience to automation experts. Train-by-demonstration interface allows users to directly interact with the robot arm to train a task. Also Intera Studio lets users access robot tasks and fine-tune the details of the tasks from their laptop. Sawyer’s embedded vision system enables the Robot Positioning System, allowing dynamic re-orientation of the robot for easy re-deployment. Reliable and ready to quickly implement plug & play ClickSmart grippers allow to build and customize end-effectors for a wide range of tasks. Sawyer is also equipped with the Intera Insights program which enables real-time reporting.
