Triad Technologies, LLC (Triad), a leading distributor of fluid power and automation products announced an agreement with Rethink Robotics to distribute their smart, collaborative robot, Sawyer.
Sawyer is designed to execute tasks that have been impractical to automate with traditional industrial robots.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Rethink to bring Sawyer to Ohio. The combination of Sawyer and Rethink's Intera software will allow our customers automation flexibility that cannot be achieved with any other product on the market," said Greg Wissman, Executive Vice President of Triad Technologies.
Rethink's robots are providing new avenues for manufacturers to improve their processes and remain competitive. These robots are used in a variety of applications including: CNC machining, metal fabrication, molding operations, testing and inspection, and packaging and material handling.
"Sawyer's 7-axis arm with integrated vision systems and advanced safety features allow true collaboration with factory workers and rapid redeployment to a variety of tasks," adds Wissman. "With a quick payback period, we strongly believe this product will provide a major cost, quality, and safety advantage for our customers."
