Educational Robot, Articulated, 6-Axis


DAC #435 Educational Robot, Articulated

This economical, yet fully functional, industrial-quality, 6-axis, articulated robot is ideal for training and research in many educational applications.

With a lifting payload of up to 6.6 pounds (3Kg.), and a tip speed of 8 in./sec. (0.2 meter/sec), its performance and abilities approach that of industrial devices. A pneumatic or parallel-jaw, servo-motor gripper can be provided. A pneumatic gripper is standard.

The PC-based controller uses PID control algorithms and can support two additional axes. Programming is done using specially developed Robot Programming Language, or using C for low level modules.

Teaching can be achieved through off-line, joint space programming and coordinate space programming.

Whether used as a stand-alone training device, or in combination with other DAC automation-related training products in a complete manufacturing system, this device will help make training in this fundamental industrial technology more realistic and productive.
