Rapid Robotics is the creator of the first affordable robotic machine operator (RMO) designed for simple machine tasks.

The Rapid Machine Operator is an all-in-one robotics solution that comes ready to perform common machine operating tasks like injection molding, pad printing, heat stamping, pick-and-place and dozens of others.

Each RMO is controlled via tablet—no robotics expertise required—and can be easily repurposed for new tasks as the need arises, using 3D-printed grippers that can be quickly fabricated on site for no additional charge.

The company says its robot is available for $2,100 per month or $25K a year and requires no programming, systems integration, specialized hardware or robotics skills. The Rapid Machine Operator enables manufacturers to easily deploy a pre-trained cobot in hours.

In August 2021, Rapid Robotics raised $36.7 million in Series B funding led by Kleiner Perkins and Tiger Global, with existing investors NEA, Greycroft, Bee Partners and 468 Capital also participating.

In April 2021, the company raised $12 million in Series A funding led by NEA, with existing investors Greycroft, Bee Partners and 468 Capital also participating.

The company emerged from stealth in November 2020.
