The Revel Robotic Manipulator


At a weight of 3kg and a price under $6500, the Revel Robotic Manipulator is one of the lightest and most affordable robot arms in its feature class.

The Revel was designed by Svenzva Robotics specifically to make robotic manipulation affordable while maintaining desired features like force control, compliance and backdrivability.
With its lifting capacity, configurable design and open source ROS software, Revel makes an ideal candidate for research & education. Revel's lightweight and low power requirements appeal to mobile and service robots that need to interact with their environments.

Included with the arm is a ready-to-go software stack on the ROS ecosystem, allowing for quick and natural integration into existing robots or research projects.

Orders have a 2-3 week lead time.
