FORT WORTH, Texas, May 25, 2023 - RS, a trading brand of RS Group plc (LSE: RS1), a global omni-channel provider of industrial product and service solutions, is proud to announce three new suppliers: Niryo, HELUKABEL, and MGM Transformer Company.


Niryo is a French startup company that specializes in affordable, easily deployable, and user-friendly desktop collaborative robotics (cobots) designed to democratize access to these essential Industry 4.0 technologies.

The Ned2 features a robust aluminum form factor with molded plastic covers, a range of motion that meets the needs of Industry 4.0 applications, and a user-friendly graphical human-machine interface (HMI) that makes it easy for users to set up, control, program, and manage cobot parameters, motion, add-ons, and accessories. It also exhibits high precision and repeatability and enables agility. The full line of Niryo solutions will soon be in stock at RS.
