Sawyer is the revolutionary collaborative robot designed to execute precise tasks that are impractical to automate with conventional robots. Sawyer joined the Rethink Robotics family of smart collaborative robots, giving manufacturers the high performance automation they need, while maintaining the flexibility, safety and interactive user experience that have become synonymous with our brand.
Weighing only 19 kg (42 lbs), Sawyer features 7 degrees of freedom with a 1260 mm meter reach that can maneuver into the tight spaces and varied configurations of work cells designed for humans. Its force sensing capabilities allow it to “feel” its way into fixtures or machines, even when the position varies slightly. This enables Sawyer to work precisely (+/- .1 mm), while operating safely next to human co-workers.
