[Discontinued] 6-Axis Mechanical Desktop Robotic Arm
Controlling a robotic arm has never been so easy, you can also teach your robotic arm to accomplish a job automatically. More applications are waiting for you to discover!
- Great for learning robotics, electronics, Arduino programming, and Python programming.
- MG996R and DS3218 servos enable the robotic arm to move stably and flexible. Wrist range of motion: 180 degrees
- Extra holes are reserved for further expansion. We recommend using with SainSmart Rotatable Platform.
- Can be controlled by Arduino UNO/MEGA. We provide test code.
- Assembly required - No soldering required. Simply put the robotic arm together with screws included.
The robotic arm is rotating multiple-dimensional, in front crawl the elongation distance of robotic arm is range from 50mm to 450mm (1.97" to 17.72"). The torque force of a single servo is up to 30KG, and the load capacity of bottom joint is up to 500g.
We provide assembling video in order to make it easier to assemble the robotic arm.
As for hardware we still provide Upgrade component to make the robotic arm more high-performance. The roating platform brings more stabilization and precision to the arm, the drive board makes it more convenient to control the arm, you do not need Dupont Line any more, just insert the servo into the shield and control your arm to do any job as you want.

Hi Guys! i really apreciate the way you work, you are fast, serious and responsive with the customer services everything comes as you listed, 5/5 starts, really thanks
The arm was easy to assemble with the available instructions download provided here on Sainsmart however getting the arm to function was a challenge. You can write your own code from scratch if you have enough experience. I was under the impression code was available for this product. On the product page it is not however after asking CS for help they directed me to a page with codes that worked sorta. They gave 4 DOF and not all 6. 2 servos didn't respond. I eventually found an arduino sketch for 6 servos controlled via 6 10k potentiometers which was much better. My 6yr old son had a great time using it to hold a laser pointer and tease our cats. LOL. The kit came with all required parts and does work once you get the code figured out. The servos are strong and well made, the arduino boards work flawlessly as do the shields. All hardware is well made/machined and nothing was missing. It even comes with an "MPU6050 3 axis accelerometer" which is great for motion control builds. Here is the link I was provided with by Customer Service to get the arm to work with the remote: http://wiki.sainsmart.com/index.php/6-Axis_Mechanical_Desktop_Robotic_Arm I hope my review was helpful. I gave 4 stars only because of limited, partially working codes and documentation. If I were to change anything I would go through the codes and test them for faults and fix that, then make them available directly on the product page. Thank you and happy making. :-)
Bear in mind that a lot of assembly is required, and documentation is lacking. If you're not already familiar with hobby electronics, this kit may be overwhelming to you. I'm impressed by the quality of the mechanical components (the structural part is powder-coated metal; feels very sturdy). The sainsmart electronics (Arduino clones and shields) are functional, but not great quality (for example, some scratches on the PCBs, many thru-hole components soldered on at wonky angles). Some of the header pins were bent during transit, too. Overall, a good value for the price! Happy hacking :)
