Product Details

  • Experiment Kit Mechanical Engineering Robotic Arms Build six mechanical models of the types of arms grabber claws and legs found on robotic machines
  • Explore mechanical engineering principles firsthand as you assemble and play with these working models
  • The models use a pneumatic system which uses air pressure to activate the models
  • Pump up the air reservoir with the hand pump then flick the switch to operate the model
  • A pneumatic piston enables the grabber claws to open and close rapidly and to grip objects with enough force to lift them
  • The piston can also move the arms and legs on models back and forth demonstrating how robotic limbs move
  • Construct a pivoting robotic laboratory arm with gripper claw Assemble an extra long grabber claw to pick up things that are just out of reach
  • Build a vertical three fingered claw that can lift a cup up off the table keeping it level
  • Experiment with models of robotic exoskeleton arms and legs
  • Make a compact grabber claw that you can slip into your shirt sleeve to pretend you have a robotic hand
  • Learn how pneumatic and hydraulic systems are used in industrial robots to enable the robots to manipulate heavy objects such as automobile components
  • A 32 page full color manual guides you through model building with step by step illustrated instructions
