5 Finger Dual Robot Arm Exhibit
Click here to see shop images of 3 & 5 Finger Dual Robot Arm Exhibits!
This exhibit features two electromechanical robot arms that measure approximately 39” long from the tip of the fingers to the base of the shoulder pivot assembly. The arm has pressure sensitive and end of travel limits, and can adapt to any arrangement of objects stacked in it’s path. It is made of light weight 6061 Aluminum. This 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 useable for any age range of visitor. To see examples of our arms click here. Each arm has five ranges of motion and independent movement in all 5 fingers, or you can choose a 3 fingered arm with 5 ranges of motion. Our arms have been used as a low cost exhibit robotics device since 1993. The basic design for the arm has also been used in rehabilitation robotics experiments where it provided dexterity, durability and a somewhat human appearance.
As seen in the top view diagram, the arms are placed so that each one is in an adjoining corner. This allows the arms to pass one another without physical contact, but still allows visitors to pass cubes back and fourth at maximum arm extension.
robot arms are a durable cost effective and easy to maintain solution to
your exhibit robotics applications. All the major components for
the arm and controls are “off the shelf” items for your maintenance
and repair convenience. We build each arm with a combination of
aluminum, nylon, steel, commercial and industrial components and durable
exhibit cases. You will never see a pressed wood product come from
our workshop. Our control panels are built to take the rigors of
public use with thick aluminum tops and quality switches and controls.
The exhibit is designed to be visually stunning, educational and useable
by virtually any age of museum visitor. This exhibit
is view able from all sides making it ideal for mid floor locations.
The top of the exhibit has LED lighting to cast a showcase glow across the interior, highlighting the angles on the cubes and components. The cubes are made of colored
foam material to reduce impact stresses between arms and base panel.
The swing of each arm creates a theoretical null spot on each side.
To compensate for this, the triangular shapes tilt any blocks that
land in a null spot to a reachable angle. This is also done directly around
the shoulder pivots. Each 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 series of push switches arranged in the form of a hand. The wrist, shoulder and elbow ranges
of motion are operated by two joystick assemblies per arm.
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.

7-year warranty against defects in our workmanship; Free Life-time phone/internet technical support; Life-time parts supply sourcing for our exhibits at wholesale prices. See more details below.
Our exhibits have a long service life expectancy, with many units still functioning smoothly at 10 years plus. They are so easy to maintain and repair, that it usually takes regular museum staff only 15 to 20 minutes.
Optional Accessories: Voice Playback
