Robot Arm

Hello at all…
I’m making a new project using a robot arm making an animation and very simple interaction activated by the user.
Anything know a good quality/price robot arm ???
Here the “basic” specification:

  • total arm extension ( reach) - 180 cm - 220 cm
  • min 6 degree of fredoom
  • load weight about 3 kg
  • obviously compatible with standard code ( if is possible vvvv)

I know only the ABB robot but is more expensive.

Thanks in advance.

Thx Noir…
have you idea about the price?

an acquaintance just bought a used kuka for 8k, and then figured out, that it comes without software, which is actually the more expensive part

which type of kuka?

Hey…it will be a good project. Can you please share the details of your project? What hardware you are going to use to build this? I also built a Robo Arm with 6 DOF. I used the gear motors with 8051.

Hello Nobe,
sorry for the delay.
I was out for job…

The idea is a robot arm with minimun extension of about 180 cm.
The robots makes a coreography in standby mode , like a conversation between the two arm, and in other moment they can reach a simple input with a prerecorded gesture.

Have you an example of your “hand-made” arm :)???

Thanks

@aelf

HUANG YI & KUKA

@noir
wow…it’s fantastic

a bit late: the model aquired was kr210 for the mentioned 8k.

@woei
is possible control it with v4?
thx

sorry to jump in like this, but has somebody an ik module for the 6axis arm up for sharing ?

Hi guys,
I’m looking for a robotic arm to control with vvvv. Any suggestions about this topic?

I saw that Meso used ABB robots and they developed the “Real-Time Robot Motion Library” for vvvv.

Anyone know if it possible to test it or buy a licence?

Thanks!

hi @idab, the library and the connection to the robot was written by me at that time. i don’t have the files anymore but i am sure that meso has it in their archives. just contact them and i am sure they will be able to help you out.
