Versatile. Affordable. Common Sense. These are not phrases typically associated with industrial robots, to be sure. But then, these are no ordinary industrial robots.

Rethink Robotics' robots will be showing up in all sorts of unexpected places – from small job shops to global manufacturing giants – where robots were not considered feasible due to expense or inflexibility. And at these companies, the human workforce is getting a promotion: from performing repetitive tasks to training and supervising robots.

The result? Greater productivity. Fewer repetitive motion injuries. And a more productive, well-trained workforce.

Baxter Special Offer


In celebration of the new addition to our family of smart, collaborative robots, and to take advantage of the attention Sawyer will bring to Rethink, we are offering a special promotion on Baxter:

Buy one Baxter Manufacturing robot (plus 2 end effectors, pedestal and 2 year extended warranty/software upgrade package) before June 19th, 2015 and receive a 50% discount on a second Baxter robot (a $12,500 value).

Rethink Robotics Sawyer

The Latest Robot from Rethink Robotics

Introducing Sawyer™ – the revolutionary new high performance collaborative robot designed to execute machine tending, circuit board testing and other precise tasks that have historically been impractical to automate with industrial robots.

Sawyer is a significant addition to the Rethink Robotics family of smart, collaborative robots, which also includes the Baxter™ robot that defined the groundbreaking category of safe, interactive, affordable automation.

Coming Soon to a Plant Near You

Sawyer will retail for a base price of $29,000, and will initially be available in North America, Europe, China and Japan. It will be released with limited availability in the summer of 2015, with general customer availability targeted for later in the year.

Baxter Robot Hardware

Baxter is a groundbreaking solution for manufacturers of all sizes. In addition to its uniquely low price point of $25,000, Baxter offers six fundamental differences that distinguish it from traditional robots.

No Programming

Line workers can train Baxter in minutes, with no expertise in software, robotics or engineering required. In addition, Baxter retains tasks quickly for fast line changeovers

No Safety Cages

Baxter was designed with a comprehensive safety system which makes it feasible for working without barriers and in close proximity to people in a production environment.

No Integration

Baxter is a complete system (hardware, software, controls, user interface, safety, sensors) that can be taken out of the box, plugged into a standard outlet, trained and working in under an hour.

Works Intelligently

Baxter is designed and programmed to perform a wide range of manufacturing and production task; it is aware of its environment, and automatically adjusts to changes.

Versatile and Capable

Baxter was designed to perform simple, repetitive tasks quickly and efficiently, freeing people to focus on higher-level, more value-added activities.

Extensible Platform

Baxter is a complete, yet fully extensivle platform which includes all necessary software, with updates providedregularly to enhance capabilities and performance. Our Software Development Kit (SDK) will enable custom programming of specialized and proprietary tasks.

Rethink Robotics Baxter Software

Current Software Version: Intera 3


About the Software

Baxter is an entirely scalable platform, capable of expanding its capabilities with software upgrades that are quick and easy for users to install, provided at no charge to existing customers with software contracts. This means no matter when you buy your Baxter, you’ll always have access to the latest and most powerful functionality available.

New with Intera 3 Release

Intera 3 is the latest and by far the most impressive version of our revolutionary software platform for manufacturing and production applications. After just over one year of incremental development since our original operating system was released on the first shipments of Baxter in 2013, Intera 3 enables Baxter to perform with over twice the speed, precision and motion quality of our flagship version.

Baxter End Effectors and Accessories

ONExia offers a complete selection of Baxter end effectors to help you get the most out of your Baxter Robot. We also have a collection of communication accessories and lighting components to help enhance Baxter's vision capabilities.

Electric Parallel Gripper


Electric parallel grippers provide one degree of freedom with multiple grasp widths, deliver an actuation time of less than one second and allow Baxter to pick up from the outside or inside an object.

Custom Vacuum Gripper Kit


Vacuum cup grippers greatly reduce the risk of marring an object's finish, make it easy to pick flat objects off a stack and often allow you to expedite operations. They allow a maximum payload of up to five pounds.

PLC I/O & I/O Extention


Baxter can connect to Modbus remote I/O or PLC to allow the robot to communicate with machines and perform a new task. ONExia offers ready to use systems that can mount directly to Baxter.

Made In USA

A New Opportunity to In-Source

As rising costs and increasing demand continue to push manufacturing overseas, Baxter provides a low-cost, highreturn alternative to offshoring. By using it to keep those processes in-house with Baxter, manufacturers can ramp up production more cost effectively, protect intellectual property, streamline supply chains and enable a more productive, satisfied and well-trained workforce.
