Robot arms are chain of hinges connected to a special turret joint body.
Robot arms have mostly the same functionality properties as hinges.
Robot arms are primarily used in factories for the operation of automated tools and factory lines.
Robot arms are also equipped adapters that allow the attachment of hardpoints into them to be used with turrets.

Basic information

  • Robot arms consist of two types of joints, revolute and prismatic, which can be stacked together to form articulated arms of varying complexity.
    • The basic arm configuration has one or two telescoping segments, and an end segment with a revolute joint. More arms or tool holders can be attached to this revolute joint.
  • The base of any arm combination has to be attached to a special turret base joint.
    • There are four different sizes of the basic arm.
