High performance collaborative robot

All in the Family

Sawyer is the revolutionary collaborative robot designed to execute precise tasks that have been impractical to automate with traditional industrial robots.  Sawyer gives manufacturers the high performance automation they need, while maintaining the flexibility, safety and affordability that have become synonymous with our brand.

Weighing only 19 kg (42 lbs), Sawyer features 7 degrees of freedom with a 1260 mm reach that maneuvers into tight spaces and operates in work cells designed for humans. 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.

Flexible and Fast

Sawyer is designed for a wide variety of high speed, high precision tasks that require flexibility and safety. Sawyer is the answer to higher productivity and greater efficiency.

Embedded Cognex Vision

Sawyer is equipped with an embedded vision system – a Cognex 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.

Internationally Available

Sawyer was built from the ground up to meet the needs of the global manufacturing marketplace. It is available through our Channel Partners worldwide.


The Power of Software

Intera has the best train-by-demonstration user interface in the industry and has revolutionized how quickly robots can be deployed on factory floors. Existing staff can easily learn how to train – and retrain – the robot. And Intera continues to improve over time, with software releases that protect and enhance your hardware investment.
