The uArm uFactory Test Kit is an entry-level open source robotic arm that is easy to use and affordable. With repeatability under 0.2 mm and armed with a state-of-the-art stepper motor, Swift Pro is a highly precise, yet super smooth robot.
“We created uArm with the goal of making robotic kits more accessible to the public and brought robotic arms from factory to people’s daily life.”
Whether it’s 3D printing, laser engraving, writing, or painting – the uArm Swift is an Arduino-based desktop robotic arm with a 12-bit encoder. In its offline mode, users are able to “teach” the arm by controlling its arm with repeated movements. The test kit is then able to mimic the movements and repeat them with high precision.
With standard extendable end-effectors that include a suction cup, a metallic gripper, and a universal holder, programmers are able to control uArm with its highly intuitive studio software. Using Blockly-based graphical programming, The uFactory Test Kit is a gesture-based robotic arm capable of bartending, laser engraving, chess playing, light painting, and 3D modeling.
Both the uArm Test Kit and its predecessor uArm Swift are open-sourced robotic arms, which means the sky’s the limit with regard to developer creativity. The uArm Creator Studio (UCS), according to Indiegogo, uses visual programming and coding in Python for fast prototype building.
Even though considered an “entry-level robot”, from its control system to its stepper motor, it will operate with precise repeatability.
