Cyton Epsilon 1500
A Revolutionary New Manipulator
With a whole new definition of affordable, Robai is proud to introduce the most capable robot of the Cyton line. Starting under $12k, the Cyton Epsilon 1500 is a game changing robot with some serious real world applications.
With seven degrees of freedom, Robai’s Cyton robot arms work like the human arm. Roboticists call robots with more than six axes ‘kinematically redundant’. The extra degrees of freedom give fluid motion, better accuracy, and the ability to reach around obstacles.
The Cyton Epsilon 1500 is an arm like no other in its class. The Epsilon 1500 has unparalleled payload, reach, and precision in Cyton’s most compact package yet.

Ease of Use
Ease Of Use
The Cyton Epsilon 1500 offers 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. Cyton Gamma 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Robai’s Epsilon 1500 comes with a two pronged gripper suitable for most of your manipulator needs. Robai also offers a variety of specialty grippers to suit vast applications. For further information about the grippers, please see the Accessories page.
Epsilon Standard Gripper
The Epsilon Standard Gripper, the default option for the Cyton Epsilon 1500, consists of two fingers with an opening range of 3.5 centimeters.
The wide gripper prongs are attachable to the standard gripper with a maximum width of 100mm for the Gamma 1500 and Epsilon 1500.
Robai also designs custom end tools to meet your application needs. Contact Us for a quote.
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.
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.
Inline inspection during the production process can catch defects early, minimizing rework, ensuring consistent quality, and providing fine-grain traceability. Read More.
Cyton is testing an NFC card reader, magnetic strip scanner, and touchscreen. Test sequence was trained in under an hour.
