The Arc Angle Robot is a small version of an industrial machine, designed for computer control. It has three axes of movement with base rotation, a horizontal arm, a vertical arm, and an end effector/hand or gripper. Motors are standard low voltage gear motors, but all movements have potentiometer feedback or can be easily adapted for optical encoders or limit switches. The hand is activated by a servo motor, but a gear motor can be substituted for this.
This 20 page instruction booklet describes the construction of the model through text and colour pictures. Included is a second 16 page booklet of isometric drawings and a parts list.
NB: This model uses non standard electric motors and control.
