Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

... and you'll need a microcontroller and a motor controller. We don't have a motor which is already connected to a lead screw, and our selection of gears is quite limited. Why do you need the worm gear?

A DC linear actuator is essentially a DC motor, connected to spur gears, and the final spur gear rotates a lead screw. That lead screw moves a traveler closer or farther, creating linear motion. Rather than an encoder, they simply measure the linear distance ...

HI,

Which Hitec servo is recommended (suggested) for use with the various “Actobotics' Hitec pinion Gears”, that you stock, for continues rotation? I am interested in mini and normal sizes, and I would rather not modify the servo myself. (Unless their is no choice).

Thanks

... air, and see if it's just getting too much resistance from the material you're using it on. Second, look in the gear box from the back, are the gears turning? If you give the rover's track a slight nudge in the right direction, will it start moving? One of the possible issues I hit once, was ...

Hey I need another one of the gears that attaches onto the electric motor (it's the small one in the picture, RB-Rbo-82). Do you sell those? And if not, can you point me in the right direction to buy another one?

An axle made out of 4-40 threaded rod might be too soft. Just trying to adjust the mesh between the gears will put too much pressure on the rod and bend it. Also, a 7mm shaft motor seems very big compare to the Axle. Maybe you should use something else as your axle ? Or use ...

If I have a motor with a shaft diameter of 7mm, how do I use it to drive an axle made with 4/40 threaded rod? If I use a gear, do they have gears with 7mm holes? Are there coupling devices I could use? I have a 48 tooth spur gear already mounted on the axle. How could I employ that in the solution? ...

You are looking to replace the gears inside the motor or inside the brush casing? We currently only sell replacement gears for the 400 series robots and this may be why they are not the same. These gears are unfortunately not interchangeable ...

Hello,

I would like to know which hub mount spur gears fit with a servoblock kit. And which hub mount spur gear fit with clamping hub. Because the holes need to match precisely between the parts.

Don't you have servo gears on the French Robotshop?

Regards.

Nicolas

I get it now. We have to run both motors at the same rate for above to hold true, right?

Correct; if you want the bevel gears to NOT turn, you need to operate both motors in the same direction.
