Try OB7

The simplest, drag-to-teach, machine tending cobot on the market.


No Programming

No programming means no coding, classes or special training needed. Anyone can teach OB7 to do hundreds of complex automation jobs simply and quickly. Just ‘show’ OB7 and it learns. 

Any Mix or Volume

OB7 automates practically any job you can throw at it – from high volume production to short runs & high mix/low volume jobs. Automate as little as 5 parts, then switch to another job in no time. OB7 does it all, precisely every time.

7-Axis Maneuverability

Like a human arm, seven joints give OB7 robots the flexibility to operate in a confined space and reach around obstructions, such as a machine tool’s sliding door. It allows the operator access to do maintenance, setups and tool changes without blocking access to the machine.

Less than $5/Hour

OB7 operating cost is less than $5/Hour (40 Hours/Week) or $2.50/Hour (80 Hours/Week). All while producing consistent, reliable machine output, reducing scrap and optimizing part quality. OB7 productivity generates positive cash flow in less than 1 week.
