RS Group has added three new suppliers to its network Niryo, HELUKABEL and MGM Transformer Company.

Niryo specializes in affordable desktop collaborative robotics (cobots) designed to democratize access to Industry 4.0 technologies. Since launching in 2017, the roughly 40-person team at Niryo has developed the Ned2 cobot, a six-axis robotic arm based on open-source technologies and engineered for education, research and prototyping applications, and a line of corresponding add-ons and accessories, including a machine vision set, an autonomous conveyor, an electromagnet, an adaptive gripper, a large gripper and a vacuum pump. The Ned2 features a robust aluminum form factor with molded plastic covers, a range of motion that meets the needs of Industry 4.0 applications, and graphical human-machine interface (HMI) that allows users to set up, control, program, and manage cobot parameters, motion, add-ons and accessories. The full line of Niryo solutions will soon be in stock at RS.
