Instructions: Select the appropriate unit and enter a value to be converted. * Note: Weight (force) and mass are different entities. To convert mass to weight, multiply by gravity (9.81 m/s^2 or 32f t/s^2). ** Note: Although kg-cm is used throughout the RobotShop site, it is actually kgf-cm. Similarly, oz-in should actually read ozf-in throughout […]

The Robot Torque Arm Calculator is intended to help you choose the right motor for each joint of your robotic arm. The torque (T) required at each joint is calculated as a worst case scenario (lifting weight at 90 degrees). Ensure your units are consistent. Most common units are kg-cm and oz-in. Take a look […]

The Drive Motor Sizing Tool is intended to give an idea of the type of drive motor required for your specific robot by taking known values and calculating values required when searching for a motor. DC motors are generally used for continuous rotation drive systems, though can be used for partial (angle to angle) rotation […]

This tutorial is intended to complement the Robot Arm Torque Calculator found in the Dynamic Tools section of GoRobotics. The equations used in the calculator to determine the torque required at any given lifting joint (raising the arm vertically) in a robotic arm are presented here. Note that the term “actuator” is used rather than motor because […]

RobotShop now carries the Cube 3D printer from 3D Systems. This is a very friendly 3D printer that allows you to make colourful objects quite easily thanks to several web applications 3D Systems puts at the disposal of the printer owner. See the samples of the things you could do with this printer in the video below. Of course, you can also create your own 3D models and print them […]
