Giant Robot Arm Exhibit Component Kits (build your own case)
Order just the components and specifications from us and build your own case. We supply complete technical support.
Our kits have been purchased by NASA, World-class museums like Carnegie Science Center's Roboworld, foreign governments, etc and for use in many traveling exhibitions like "Popnology", "Robots; the Interactive Exhibition" and "Alien Worlds and Androids"! Order just the components and specifications from us and build your own case. We supply complete technical support. Our kits are just as durable and easy to maintain as our complete exhibits. They are often purchased to be included in traveling exhibitions which require outstanding durability to be able to hold up to both public use and the rigors of road travel.

Below are images of the MRISAR R&D Team fabricating the prototype of our Giant Robot Arm that was used in kit form and incorporated into a life sized sub at Nauticas! Nauticus is a maritime-themed science center and museum located in Norfolk, Virginia, also known as the National Maritime Center.
A highly educational and visually stunning 9.5 feet long, five range of motion, 2 finger Giant Robot Arm exhibit designed to illustrate remote handling applications for robotics. The arm has pressure sensitive and end of travel limits, and can adapt to any arrangement of objects stacked in its path. This arm is totally open framed for educational viewing, which relates to STEM. It is especially designed with safety features and force limits.
The arm is usable for any age range of visitor. It is made of light weight 6061 Aluminum. The arm is protected by limit controls and spring loaded for shock. The limit controls use simple logic to avoid over travel, as opposed to expensive and hard to repair computer guided systems. The fingers operate by pressing a push switch.
This is configured as a demonstration arm to illustrate remote handling applications for robotics. Remote handling robots are used by industry, aerospace and commercial establishments to extend human capabilities in hazardous situations. The exhibit also provides hands on activities based on Robotic Manipulation technology which encompasses devices for transmitting movements to a remote robotic device, allowing the manipulation of objects that are too heavy, dangerous, small, or in other respects too difficult to handle directly.
This exhibit kit includes an electronic-electromechanical robot arm, support electronics, visual support materials, maintenance information and schedule, power supply and control panel.
