InnoTechnix launches MandleBot, its first robot accessible to the general public

Can be controlled manually or automatically from a USB port with InnoTechnix-designed software (for Windows)

InnoTechnix, a Canadian company specializing in the manufacture of small robots accessible to the general public, is proud to announce the launch of MandleBot. MandleBot is a robotic arm made of aluminum with a gripper, the first in a wide range of specialized robots.


Developed and assembled in Canada, our robot can be controlled manually or automatically from a USB port with InnoTechnix-designed software (for Windows). One of the main features of MandleBot is that it can be disassembled using a simple Allen key, and reassembled by an 8-year-old child in a few hours.

InnoTechnix is targeting three main markets for MandleBot. It can be used in the education field, with robotics workshops being developed according to the age of the students. It will have a niche in specialty shops such as science centers and premium toy stores, as well as in corporations, where robots can be used in different learning environments and for entertainment.

Inspired by NASA and sci-fi movies, InnoTechnix wants to democratize access to robots, entertain fans of construction and technological games, stimulate the imaginations of young and old, and why not, help create interest in scientific and technology-oriented vocations among young people.

MandleBot is available in two options:

*MandleBot Premium: the robot is delivered mounted with a sturdy carrying case.

Special Introductory Price: $ 1,549.00

*MandleBot Geek: the robot is delivered in parts and must be assembled according to the instructions.

Special Introductory Price: $ 1,149.00

For geeks, we also provide an API protocol (available for Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows CE) with full documentation and code samples.

InnoTechnix had the privilege of presenting the project on "Dans l'oeil du Dragon" (the French-Canadian version of Dragon's Den). More than one million viewers were able to see our robots in action. Here is the link: http://dragon.radio-canada.ca/emission/les-candidats/34-InnoTechnix

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
