With our Smart, Collaborative Robot Pioneer

For decades, manufacturers have had very few cost-effective options for low volume, high mix production jobs. Then came Baxter – the first safe, flexible, affordable alternative to fixed automation. Companies globally have integrated Baxter into their workforce, and gained a competitive advantage.

Baxter is a proven industrial automation solution for a wide range of tasks – from line loading and machine tending, to packaging and material handling.

Safe, by Design

Baxter is safe next to people on a production line, without the need for caging – saving money and valuable floor space.

Trained, Not Programmed

Baxter, powered by Intera, is trained by demonstration using existing personnel, reducing time and cost.

Flexible & Re-deployable

Baxter is flexible for a range of applications and re-trainable across lines and tasks – it can be repurposed quickly across jobs.

Easily Integrated

Baxter deploys quickly and can connect to other automation in the work cell – often without third party integration.

Force Sensing

The patented technology in Baxter’s joints respond to force, allowing it to “feel” its way into fixtures.


Degrees of Freedom

With 7 DoF Baxter’s arms can maneuver much like a human’s arms, and reduce work cell reconfiguration.


Baxter’s Vacuum Cup Grippers

Vacuum Cup Grippers

Can be used to pick up a wide range of objects, especially if they’re smooth, non-porous or flat.  Connect directly to external air lines.

Baxter’s Mobile Pedestal

Mobile Pedestal

Optional rolling pedestal with industrial grade casters makes it easy to move Baxter quickly and safely between workstations.
