The Capabilities of Baxter

cornell-baxter-robot-2You might have heard about our new friend Baxter—the interactive production robot that is assisting us at Standby Screw. Let’s get down to it—what can Baxter do and what makes him so special?!

He’s safe. Baxter doesn’t like to be caged up and luckily, you won’t have to! He doesn’t take up much space and can work safely and productively next to anyone on the floor in our warehouse!

He’s well-trained. There is no need to further program Baxter. He’s ready to be trained by in-house staff, reducing the time and cost of third party programmers.

He’s flexible. Need Baxter to learn a new capability? He can do it. A little re-purposing is nothing for a robot like Baxter who can speed up the ROI process to less than one year.

He’s careful. Baxter’s arms and force detection allow him to pick up, place, and guide pieces just as carefully as a human would. He’s very polite to be so careful.

The next time you need kitting, packaging, loading, unloading, machine tending, or material handling done, give Baxter a try. We’ve even had guest blogs on how easy it is to work alongside him. He’s worth every penny!
