7Bot has this week launched a new aluminium 6-axis robot arm over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website, with the aim of raising $50,000 to take their concept into production.
The 6-axis robot arm is available to pledge for from $297 for early bird backers and provides a completely assembled robot arm complete with vacuum cup gripper, power supply and USB cable.
Watch the video below to learn more about this 6-axis desktop robot arm, that has been inspired by the ABB industrial robot arm IRB2400 and designed specifically for robotic fans, engineers, educators and researchers. Its creators explain a little more about what you can expect.
With all Aluminum Body and 6 degrees of freedom powered by high torque metal digital servos with force-control supported, 7Bot has rugged reliability with exceptional performance in torque and speed, even close to the industry robot arm.
We offer two kinds of end-effectors for different applications and extensions, the Vacuum Cup Gripper is the basic accessory. It is completely assembled on the Arm. While the Two-Finger Gripper is the extra accessory for more applications.
As the 7Bot Arm is modeled after industrial robot arm, how about making a real automatic assembly line on your desk? The answer is definitely yes. Using our computer vision sample codes, you can adjust the parameters to build a real automatic assemble line on your desk.
