If you have been searching for an Arduino robotic arm that provides 5-axis of motion then the new Maximo robotic arm created by InnoTechnix might be worth more investigation.
The InnoTechnix Maximo Arduino robotic arm is now available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from $399 AUD or $290 US for backers, offering a considerable discount of its full retail price.
InnoTechnix explains more about the inspiration, design and functionality of their new robotic arm.
Our Arduino Maximo Robot Arm is designed to offer the highest quality while remaining one of the most affordable robotic arms on the market. Its 5-axis range of motion allows for movements similar to assembly line robots. My team and I wanted to create a robotics experience that would be available to anyone interested in this hot and futuristic subject, whether just starting out or already quite experienced. Our goal has been to create a robot that meets our exacting quality standards while remaining affordable. After a full year of research, the result is Maximo. Now we need your help to make Maximo a reality.
The kit includes: a black and clear acrylic body with a set of screws, nuts and standoffs, 6x KING MAX High Torque Servo Motors, a bearing base, Arduino with Servo Shield, wiring, USB cable and a power supply. You also get the standard gripper head module, a Robotic Studio license and the Assembly Manual.
Assembling the 230 parts of the arm is an easy process. In fact, the only thing required to build the robot is a Phillips-head screwdriver. We provide a simple step-by-step guide to help you build Maximo. Even a beginner can put Maximo together and get it to work in less than three hours. In order to bring more features to Maximo, we’ve created several modular heads. These heads can be changed within seconds. They were designed to be easy to install and remove.
