Affordable robots – lightweight and high power

Svenzva Robotics’ premiere robot is the Revel robotic manipulator, an affordable robotic arm with 6 Degree of Freedom, medium size and a light overall weight.

What makes the Revel one of the most affordable robots? Our Engineering team designed Revel from the bottom up to reduce manufacturing costs while maintaining features that allow complex control. Revel contains smart servos that output a full suite of state information and allow several control modes.

Revel is ROS enabled through our driver software, which has been designed to allow users to get acquainted quickly but also allow control flexibility for power-users and researchers.

Bringing real robotics to a classroom near you

Our robotic arm is a heavy weight in features but a lightweight in cost. This a powerful combination in a classroom, where budgets are tight but you want to maximize opportunities for students.

Svenzva Robotics specializes in designing the hardware and software to power affordable high-performance robotics. We work with universities and primary educators to provide robotics for classrooms, research labs and museums.



We emphasize practical engineering to reduce costs while retaining features.


Our robots come ready to work with fully supported control software written specifically for ROS.

Customer Support

Robustness of design and build is a guarantee, but when things go awry, we're here to help.

Not Your Average Robotic Arms

Svenzva Robotics designs deceptively powerful robotic arms with customization and flexibility in mind. Our premiere robot, the Revel Robotic Arm, practically begs to be modified for your specific use case – all at an affordable price point.

What sets Revel apart from other ROS powered robotic arms?

Expect these features right out of the box:

  • The ability to lift 1.36kg at a full reach of 63cm
  • The power and convenience of the ROS ecosystem through our ROS drivers
  • Trajectory execution with motion planning through MoveIt!
  • Position, Velocity, and Torque as native control modes
  • Gazebo simulator and ros_control support
  • Compliance and gravity compensation for easy kinesthetic teaching interactions

High Strength, Low Weight and Built to Last

Revel is manufactured and assembled in the U.S. using aircraft grade aluminum to produce a high strength to weight ratio.

Its low weight, with the low power consumption of its Dynamixel motors, allow Revel to be easily integrated into existing mobile platforms with a minimal footprint.

Quick Custom Gripper Integrations

Revel is engineered to make customization for your project simple and inexpensive.

Revel’s parallel gripper can be easily removed for a custom solution or an off-the-shelf gripper that you need for your application.

Open Routing

Revel employs an open-shell style body that allows for open routing for your custom end-effector needs. Here’s a short list of items easily integrated into the Revel body

  • custom gripping systems
  • vacuum tubes
  • additional power + data lines for cameras or sensors

Hot Swap Fingers

Different applications demand different finesse. Revel’s parallel gripper has hot-swappable fingers, allowing you to choose the finger shape and size that meets your needs.

Powerful Software

Our ROS powered software offers many modes of operation: cartesian velocity, position control, gravity compensation mode

You can quickly teach Revel a new task through our teaching from demonstration interfaces, or use collision aware motion planning through MoveIt and KDL
