Rethink’s smart, collaborative robots are able to automate the 90 percent of tasks that until now, have been beyond the reach of traditional automation. Baxter and Sawyer, powered by the Intera software platform, adapt to real-world variability, can change applications quickly and perform tasks like people do. The result: manufacturers of all shapes, sizes and industries get the fast-to-deploy, easy-to-use and versatile automation solution they need to increase flexibility, lower cost and accelerate innovation.

Unlike other collaborative robots, Rethink’s robots are built with a software-first approach that enables a smarter more flexible robot.

The end product are affordable, flexible robots that can perform the tasks manufacturers need and can shift between tasks in minutes, not hours.
