More affordable than any other option on the market.


RO1 comes with direct integrations for Haas lathes, and all of the necessary I/O on-board to automate any lathe

Physical capabilities

Equipped with an 18Kg payload and a reach of 1.3m, RO1 can easily pick up blanks and receive newly machined parts

No-Code programming

High-mix shop? Operators can use RO1’s no-code programming interface to automate new lathe tasks without prior experience


Overnight operations
Continue automated lathe tending overnight without operators, safe in the knowledge that RO1 can control your equipment and automatically stop if an issue is detected
Exponential productivity
RO1 can multiply the output of your operators, allowing them to safely oversee multiple lathes and increase your shop productivity
Affordable deployment
Despite being faster, stronger and more precise, RO1 is significantly more affordable than incumbent competitor robotic arms, allowing you to automate more of your lathes

From our customers

"I've worked with UR and Kuka and all these other robots and found your robots to be very slick...I have never seen any other robot of this particular size and character perform this very well."
“After working with your robot at the TMMI facility I have setup a call with a factory in Denver for a 12 robot opportunity - I never thought robots would become so easy to use.”
"We've had a UR robot which wasn't ever easy to program even for our operators that know code, but our operator who doesn't know code was able to set up Standard Bots in a day.”
Mac Products
"It’s already obvious there is a night and day difference between them and legacy robotics arms.”

Where is the RO1 robot made?

Expand icon

RO1 is designed and built in the USA and assembled in Glen Cove, New York.

How does the free remote consultation work?

Expand icon

Our goal is to increase the likelihood of your success with our robot. We start with a 45 minute meeting to review videos of your task and discuss solutions. We may recommend a free engineering analysis, the results of which we’ll include in your quote. There is no charge for any of this.

How long does the set up process take?

Expand icon

Shop-floor operators can setup and program our robot within minutes. No understanding of code needed.

What accessories does the RO1 robot support?

Expand icon

RO1 integrates directly with conveyors, 7th-axis slides, linear actuators, vertical lifts, safety devices and much more - with easy or no wiring. This includes electrical and mechanical compatibility with the most popular robot end effector ecosystems. RO1 works great with products from OnRobot, Schunk, Robotic, Piab, Schmaltz, ATI, and more.

What makes Standard Bots so affordable?

Expand icon

We design all of our own hardware and software with the mission of making automation accessible to everyone. Our first principles approach to designing our own parts allows us to dramatically reduce costs while also making the most capable and performant robot in its class.

Will Standard Bots work with my existing hardware and use cases?

Expand icon

RO1 is easy to integrate into any manufacturing and machining setup and supports a wide range of uses cases including machine tending, palletizing, inspection, metrology, and more.

What are the benefits of having a camera on the robot?

Expand icon

RO1 has an integrated 3D camera on its wrist and doesn't require any calibration. This allows RO1 to accomplish tasks like barcode reading, scanning objects into an object library, identifying + localizing parts for pickup, pick from a dense bin, scan an environment to avoid obstacles and automatically plan paths, and more.
