Introducing Sawyer – the revolutionary new high performance collaborative robot designed to execute machine tending, circuit board testing and other precise tasks that are impractical to automate with industrial robots.
Smaller Footprint, Longer Reach
Smaller and lighter weight than Baxter, and with 7 DOF and a 1026 mm reach, Sawyer can maneuver into the tight spaces and varied alignments of work cells designed for humans.
With a base price of $29,000, Sawyer will initially be available in North America, Europe, China and Japan, with limited availability beginning in mid-2015.
Like Baxter, Sawyer is powered by the industry’s best and most intuitive software platform, Intera. It features the same iconic “face” screen (with a refreshed and even more expressive design) that helps it communicate with co-workers, along with the train-by-demonstration user interface that revolutionized how robots can be deployed on factory floors. Sawyer runs on the same version of Intera as Baxter, and will continue to evolve and improve with regular upgrades... (more details) (more about Intera software)
Stäubli offers a complete range of robotic tool changing systems for payloads of 20 kg to 1,530 kg and torsion moments from 30 to 12,500 Nm, designed for use in virtually every industry. The tool changers adapt to customer-specific applications with different modules for media, data, power, etc.
The new MPS 130 robotic tool changer is powerful, very robust, and designed for a huge range of applications. It features multiple couplings for air/vacuum connections, and can be equipped with connectors for data and electrical transmission. Very compact dimensions, with a coupled height of only 67 mm, make the MPS 130 the first choice for applications requiring a high number of mating cycles.
