Laboratory Tabletop 3 Finger Arm
A classroom countertop version of our manual controlled museum quality single robot arm exhibit. It features a 39" long, five range of motion, 3-finger arm. Approximate size of case 36" high x 42" wide x 30” deep (optional depths are available- please inquire). The arm is designed as an educational compliment to simple machines curriculum. The main arm components are viewable for educational merit. The activities relate to learning to manually manipulate the arm via controls. This device is relevant to an understanding of remote applications for robotics in industry, space and emergency situations. The exhibit comes with two basic manipulation activities (below).

The arm has pressure sensitive and end of travel limits, and can adapt to any arrangement of objects stacked in it’s path. It is made of light weight 6061 Aluminum. This arm is totally open framed for educational viewing and based closely on the proportions of an actual human arm. It is especially designed with safety features and force limits. The arm is also useable for any age range of visitor.
Our arms have been used as a low cost exhibit robotics device since 1993. The basic design for the arm has also been used in rehabilitation robotics experiments where it provided dexterity, durability and a somewhat human appearance. Our robot arms are a durable cost effective and easy to maintain solution to your exhibit robotics applications. The exhibit is configured as a demonstration arm to illustrate remote handling applications for robotics. Remote handling robots are used by industry, aerospace and commercial establishments to extend human capabilities in hazardous situations. Our arms have stood the test in exhibit robotics and rehabilitation Robotic applications. We build each arm with a combination of aluminum, nylon, steel, commercial and industrial components and durable exhibit cases. You will never see a pressed wood product come from our workshop. Our control panels are built to take the rigors of public use with thick aluminum tops and quality switches and controls.
If you have been troubled by Robotic exhibits that are not obtainable due to high cost or are hard to maintain and require highly skilled personnel and expensive repairs, we can provide a quality alternative. This complete exhibit includes a quality built electronic-electromechanical robot arm, fully enclosed exhibit case for the arm, support electronics, visual support materials, maintenance information and schedule, two activities and control panel.
