Bi-Handed Cyton Robot

A Deftly Coordinated Assistant

With two arms and a torso, the Bi-Handed Cyton Humanoid accomplishes a new world of complex tasks. Perfect for tasks that require coordinated bi-handed manipulation, its specialties include inspection, dynamic camera and lighting manipulation, spray coating, mobile device testing, dual-arm tasks such as light assembly, and dual-arm lifting. The bi-handed Cyton also provides a compelling platform for bi-manual robotics R&D.

  • Ease of use

    Ease of Use

    The Bi-Handed Cyton’s two Epsilon 300 or 1500 arms offer increased joint torques. Actin provides active management of the higher torques to optimize strength and lift capacity for the target tasks while ensuring safety and durability. The Bi-Handed Cyton requires no external controller box, only a 12v power supply. Setup is as simple as opening your laptop — plug the Cyton into a power outlet and connect the included USB cable to your Windows or Linux computer.

    Getting started with Cyton is just as easy. Whether you are looking for an easy way to get your Cyton running on the production line or need to automate a benchtop task, Cyton has a task setup mode to meet your needs.

    Interactive GUI

    Use the Actin control interface to move the gripper to target positions, either as a freeform move or with constraints applied such as collision avoidance. For the input device, we support a mouse, 3D mouse, joysticks, P5 tracking glove, and others.

    Waypoint Sequences

    Gripper position/orientation and arm motions can be saved as waypoints and waypoint sequences. Composing task behavior from sets of waypoint sequences and event actions provides a powerful way to put the Cyton to work.

    Assistive Mode

    Hold the arm and guide it through the set of target positions. At each target position, record a waypoint. Then playback the motion or use the path as part of a more complex set of actions.

    Programmatic control

    If you will have a program that generates target reach/grasp locations, you can command the arm to move to those positions using the C++ SDK, TCP commands, or LabView interface. With any of these programmatic control interfaces, you can send joint-value commands, send desired end-effector position/orientation, or trigger pre-defined waypoint sequences and actions.

    Case Studies


    Painting and Surface Coating

    The Cyton is well suited for spray painting, surface coating, and spray cleaning of products. Applying a surface coat of paint, glaze, or other protective coating requires even motion, appropriate spray control, and proper spray orientation with respect to the product surfaces. Read More.



    Touchscreen Testing

    Touch testing of device controls and interfaces is still often a manual process. Automating touch testing of buttons, dials, and touchscreens offers a way to ensure consistent production quality and deliver the fine-grain traceability needed to drive quality even higher. Read More.




    Automated Inspection

    Inline inspection during the production process can catch defects early, minimizing rework, ensuring consistent quality, and providing fine-grain traceability. Read More.

    Surface Coating

    Automated spray painting with the Cyton robot. With 7 axes, the Cyton Gamma can reach up and over the target product and sweep smoothly over the surface.


    Touchscreen Testing

    Cyton is testing an NFC card reader, magnetic strip scanner, and touchscreen. Test sequence was trained in under an hour.



    Automated Inspection

    The Cyton Gamma looks for new objects placed in the input buffer, then picks up the object and places it in the inspection area for visual inspection. After inspection, the Cyton places the device in one of several output buffers.
