    Excelent product by adequate price
    Review by Mimus
    I would like to note about high quality of product. According to specification of product it could be used in different areas. It covered my expectations about it.

    During installation you could meet problem with electricity supply cable (not the same colors as in instruction), but it is not a big problem.

    Also I would like to note about adequate support system of Robotiq company. During installation I addressed several questions for them and get qualified answers.

Enter The Instructables and RoboGames Robot Contest

Posted on May 06, 2008

By William Cox & filled under Competitions.

Instructables and RoboGames have teamed up to create a robot building contest. The task is to design and document one specific aspect of your robot. Good robot design is highly detailed, so we’re asking you to document specific parts of your robot for this contest. Maybe you built the ultimate manipulator arm, designed a killer [...]

NASA's Nanosatelite System

Posted on June 21, 2005

By William Cox & filled under Industry.

Take a look at NASA’s latest revision to it’s Miniature Autonomous Extravehicular Robotic Camera (Mini AERCam) designed to help out spacecraft and ground crew see around and inside the spacecraft. The latest prototype, "nanosatelite", is 7.5 inches in diameter and weights around 10lbs. "The Mini AERCam could provide beneficial on-orbit views that cannot be obtained [...]

It looks like SCARA manipulators aren't particularly interesting to most folks compared with elbow manipulators. :lol: They are, however, excellent for pick and place. ...

Get a little aquarium pump, and use it to create a small vacuum? Check into pick-and-place robotic chip manipulators, they often move parts this way. Surplus? Paper movers are often a tube with slots/holes, and a weak vacuum. Alan KM6VV Does anyone have a suggestions how to ...

... about a hexapod or an octopod, I decided to go 2 legs further, both for mission redundancy and also with a view to possibly using several legs as manipulators in the future. I am starting with 10 identical legs but I am also considering the possibility of 4 of the "legs" being multi-segmented ...
