MRISAR's Single Person Rail Robot Arm Exhibit
One Person Rail Robot Arm Exhibit
This design uses the rail robot arm exhibit technological aspects we created for our other rail robot arm exhibits. The robot arm moves on a rail system. A control panel operates the 5 degree of freedom robot arm. The dexterity and reach of the robot arm within the activity area allows a greater reach that is well beyond our highly popular Regular Robot Arm series of exhibits that have their arm bases fixed in place.
The exhibit is also viewable from all sides so it can be of educational benefit and interest to students while they wait for their turn to use it and observe the viewable mechanical and electrical elements of the arms which relate well to STEM and STEAM educational initiatives.
The robot arm has five ranges of motions, pressure sensitive and end of travel limits and is made of light weight 6061 Aluminum. It has three fingers. The fingers come in either black or white UHMW. The robot arm is totally open framed for educational viewing and based closely on the proportions of an actual human arm. It is especially designed with safety features and force limits. The arm is also usable for any age range of visitor.
Each side of the upper frame of the exhibit is a window made of clear unbreakable poly-carbonate.
The exhibit 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.
Educational graphics are also available to supply information about the main active components and specific names for the parts. A manual for setup and operation is also supplied, as is educational information about the exhibit.
Rail robotics systems are part of the current and future technology. They are part of the progression to having robotic systems travel to work sites, which is a fantastic development effecting many types of industries and service applications of robotics for humanity. These include adaptive tech work stations for people with disabilities.
Activity Areas General Layout: Termination points for the activity areas are the curved walls for the front and back and the straight sides to the right and left. It has an exceptional reach and area to build in.
Approximate Size of Case: 72” high. Other custom sizes are possible up to 20ft long. Longer units have the option to be fitted with a mobile camera and monitor system. Please contact us for a custom quote for different sizes and units with telepresence style and monitor systems.
When you buy this complete exhibit from us nothing else is required except the power to run it. Our exhibits are easy to setup. No special training or expertise is needed. Setup usually requires only two people and a half an hour to 45 minutes. Tools needed are commonly only an included Allen Wrench and screwdriver. On location setup is not included, but email and phone support is provided. Unpacking usually takes an hour.
At your option the exhibit can ship fully assembled or in three case sections; Control panel as one and the main case in two parts that attach with the turn of a few screws and by simply plugging Molex connectors in. Organizations with small doors to the facility exhibit halls are the only ones that choose the sectional option. If you have a suitable size door there is no real point in it being in three pieces.
The arm in this exhibit is a combination of the ones shown in the links of the following two videos.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=003Tl-aVEeE This video has a section towards the last third with an active arm of a similar type in action. Similar to the two in this exhibit, but the rail system and reach is much larger in the Two Person Dual Rail Robot Arm Exhibit setup. This is a five degree of freedom arm. The rest of the video from the beginning shows how we work in the shops and labs. The controls are the type shown in the rendering, two joysticks per arm.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lF1vBIqzviA This video shows a similar case, but the arms in this video do not have the shoulder horizontal pivot which is a must for the Two Person Dual Rail Robot Arm Exhibit application for the dexterous placement of a variety of shapes. The fun and informative aspect of this video is the impression of size and the general feel of two arms working at the same time in a single case as they really take on a lifelike feeling in dual arm setups. The arms for the Two Person Dual Rail Robot Arm Exhibit each have five degrees of freedom which include hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder horizontal and rail travel in one axis. Rail systems bring the arms to the work site so the results are vastly superior to arm setups that have a stationary base which results in a limited pie shaped activity area reach.
