Rethink Robotics© has revolutionized the field of automation by taking robots out from behind costly and space consuming safety cages, away from highly trained and compensated robotic engineers, and into the common, highly flexible work-cells where they “rub elbows” with production workers. Now you can have highly productive machines working in a variable and flexible manufacturing environment while cooperating with people and other machines, and delivering unparalleled work-cell productivity.
Since February of 2017, and the introduction of Rethink's backbone software Intera 5, Rethink Robotics has created the world’s first smart robot that can orchestrate the entire work cell, removing areas of friction and opening up new and affordable automation possibilities for manufacturers. Intera 5 drives immediate value while helping customers work toward a smart factory. Each robot is a gateway to the industrial internet of things (IIoT).
With Intera 5, the train-by-demonstration software platform that controls and trains the robots to perform tasks, integration and deployment is measured in hours, not weeks.
Rethink gives manufacturers access to data that wasn’t available before, enabling a smart factory that improves metrics for downtime, throughput, cycle time and equipment effectiveness. Users have a single source of control through the robot known as Sawyer, control that coordinates conveyors, equipment and other machines all at once – greatly simplifying work-cell automation and paving the way for a fully integrated IIoT.
Today Rethink’s Sawyer™ robot works alongside skilled, tenured workers, with each executing on what they do best. Sawyer offers additional element precision, focus, and endurance to the factory floor, while humans provide greater flexibility, dexterity and problem-solving skills. People and robots working side by side allows for flexible production – maximizing resources, gaining efficiency, and creating a competitive advantage for companies of all sizes.
Increase productivity, reduce ergonomic concerns and stay at the forefront of technology. Watch here to see how other companies do this with the collaborative robots from Rethink Robotics®.
