What our customers say about us
The difference between Rapid and system integrators is night and day. Rapid is there when you need them. You can deploy Rapid Machine Operators extremely fast, and the support is phenomenal. We don’t have a ton of engineering resources. We don’t have any robotics engineers or software engineers. For us, the Rapid Machine Operator was an easy, quick and incredibly rewarding entry into the world of robotics.
Director of Manufacturing, TouchMark
Rapid Machine Operators are easy to set up and integrate seamlessly with our staff.
Head of Fulfillment and Supply Chain, Truepill
If you don’t have a massive engineering staff and you want to start saving immediately, this is the robot for you.
VP Manufacturing Operations, Delphon
We looked at automating machine operator tasks before, but as a custom injection molder, the costs were prohibitive. Rapid’s solution was the first we’d seen that just worked, at a price that made sense for our business. We were pleased with how responsive the Rapid team is and were quickly able to start seeing value.

Frequently asked questions
What does my subscription include?
Why is the RMO so much more affordable than other cobots?
First, we eliminated the need for systems integration. With traditional cobots, integration usually costs more than the hardware. The RMO comes pretrained and preintegrated, so integration costs aren’t a factor. We also offer the RMO by subscription, which avoids the need for capital expenditure.
Why doesn’t the RMO need systems integration?
Because it’s purpose-built for the job. Traditional cobots need systems integrators to set them up for each task (also to move between tasks). This adds significant cost to every implementation.
The RMO is specifically designed to operate industrial machines. It comes with software, computer vision, a robotic arm and housing, all preintegrated and ready to perform the most common machine-operating tasks. This allows us to get an RMO up and running in hours, compared to the weeks or months other cobots need. It also allows the RMO to move between jobs in seconds. When other solutions would still be on the drawing board, the RMO is working away, helping you execute jobs and win new business.
