New version of the Zortrax Robotic Arm.

The model of Robotic Arm presented here is a pick and place device, that could be applied to the production line to advance the efficiency of the process. Thanks to the three motors used as the mechanism, the device is able to lift parts that weigh up to 0,1 kg. Five axes allow the Robotic Arm to move on five different directions and guarantee that the device will reach the parts that are to be picked. The model presented here has a mounted grasper on its end, but it can be replaced by other tips, like sucker, electromagnet or a drill, according to desired purposes.

Assembly manual can be found at: http://www.zortrax.com/downloads/ROBOTIC_MANUAL.pdf

Use 8mm steel balls in main bearing.

We recommend to use Z-ULTRAT to print this model. To get best resoults choose 0.14 layer thickness and light infill for bigger parts. We recommend to use Side Covers during print.

    Hello Zortrax,
    Thanks for the awesome project.
    I noticed that the instructions don’t explicitly mention an Arduino Mega board, but I am assuming we would need to connect the RAMPS to one. Do you have any recommendations on Arduino Mega boards?
    Thanks!

    You mention light infill for bigger parts (means mesh or low infil?)

    Zortrax Hello, I have almost finished assembling the robotic arm. Great project.
    I have a big problem with the configuration of the RAMPS board 1.4. You can send more data to be able to easily configure.

    Thank you
