"We're running the robot night and day. We're very happy about what they did for our company."

"We're running the robot night and day. Standard Bots technology did a lot more and was more affordable.
Standard Bots is now who we're dealing with and we plan to use them on future applications. We're very happy about what they did for our company.”
CNC Manager
"This was my first time working with and setting up a robot. Standard Bots has been really easy overall."
CNC Operator
"Standard Bots was very easy to justify based on ease of use and cost. The subscription was a no brainer.
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.”

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.

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 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.
