    Need help on Mechanical Designs of Robotic Arm



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I want to make a research on Robotics and Iíve been lurking around reading up on Robotics.I have been out of my wits trying to get some help on this. Locally, itís been hard for me to get some help and somehow, I thought I would check out if there were any websites/forums that might be able to help me out so here I am wondering if anyone of you would be kind enough to provide with me some designs in terms of mechanical components?

    The motion i want to use is almost the same as a human arm and can hold up 3 kg of things. I want to use electrical actuators and gears, preferably at a low cost and light weight.

    As I stated above, I need help on the mechanical design (mechanism) movement of the arm. I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me on this. I seriously have tried getting help elsewhere and Robotics isnít something that is big here Ė not yet, anyway! So here I am Ė trying on a forum!

    Many thanks in advance!

    When I make my robot arms, I use silver flexible duct, and an old pair of pliers for a menacing pincher claw....
