This robot is based on the ABB PalletPack 460. An affordable, scaled-down model that is perfect for classroom based training on the mechanics and operations of a robot arm.
The 3DOF Palletizing Robot has three degrees of freedom -. It can reach up to 50cm away from its body. It runs on stepper motors and gearing for great precision.
The lifting capacity is approximately 125g fully extended and 155g in a retracted position.
- 3 degrees of freedom: forward/back, up/down, turn left/right.
- Arm tip is always parallel to the base
- 125g static lift at 50cm full extension
- 150g static lift at 13cm full retraction
- +/-180 degree left/right rotation
- Movement ceiling 30cm from base
- Movement floor -17cm from base
- Repeatability ~2mm
- Base: h 6mm x w 127mm x d 127mm
- Shoulder: h 113mm x w 136mm x 172mm
- Bicep: l 365mm x w 42mm
- Forearm: l 366mm x w 30mm
- Fingertip: h 83mm x w 20mm x d 32.5mm
- Weight: 1.399kg
