About Standard Bots
Standard Bots is building the Tesla of robotics, to produce robotic arms to automate repetitive, physical tasks. The flagship product is the RO1, a 6-axis arm which can be programmed by users with no previous robotics experiences, using a no-code interface. The primary customer is the manufacturing industry and machineshops, although the RO1 is applicable to lots of automation tasks.
We believe robots can elevate people’s lives — but only if people can use them. Until now, robots have been too expensive and too difficult to operate for many who could use them most. That’s why we created RO1: an affordable robot that anyone can use, yet is still capable of tackling the toughest, most complex challenges.
What problems does Standard Bots solve?
RO1 is a six-axis robotic arm engineered and built in the USA. It’s easy for operators to integrate RO1 into their existing machining or packing setups to automate tasks both simple and complex. That’s because it talks to everything you want it to talk to. It’s plug-and-play[-and-work]. No wirings, no drivers, no configurations.
For whom your Product/ Service is for?
Our initial focus is on manufacturing tasks – the kind of dangerous, mundane, or repetitive tasks that companies can accelerate and operators want to avoid. But there’s a whole world beyond manufacturing that can benefit from our robotics platform. Commercial dishwashing. Fast food. Even activities like massages.
What makes you stand out from the crowd?
At Standard Bots, we design robots that create a safer, more productive manufacturing environment for the people that use them.
By automating many of the most common tasks in manufacturing, our RO1 robot saves time and effort for operators that they can use to focus on higher-impact tasks and processes.
What are your future plans?
In the future we believe six-axis robotic arms can pull a more enjoyable future closer to the present day. From making production more efficient in businesses to aiding the elderly in their homes, robots have the potential to improve the lives of people around the world.
