How BIG Can I Make My Robot?

Posted on February 27, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

You’re thinking about building your first robot and have grandiose thoughts of making something like an exoskeleton or a giant robotic “pet” to strike fear into your enemies. As much as we dream about these robots and see them in movies, there are not many around for a reason. For your first build, you need [...]

You might consider an L12 linear actuator w/ 50mm stroke and an accuracy of 0.2mm. This can be controlled with something like the Phidgets servo controller. We don't carry any track-based actuators at this time.
