Over the past several years, robots and devices using artificial intelligence have moved from the realm of science fiction to the world of science fact. Virtual assistants, robot helpers, 3D printers, and other high-tech devices have taken the world by storm, and are now commonplace in many homes. But the Rotrics’ DexArm is taking things to the next level. Whether you’re looking for an AI assistant, a desktop plotter, a laser engraver, or a 3D printer, this robot arm does it all.
DexArm is a robotic arm with easily attachable modules that transform the device into a desktop plotter, laser engraver, 3D printer, and more. With a precision of up to 0.1mm, and repeatability of a whopping 0.05mm, the DexArm can do just about anything. Whether you’re looking to engrave a phone case or 3D print some lightweight industry modules, DexArm can help. It can engrave on a variety of surfaces such as wood, bamboo, leather, fabric, or even paper. With dimensions of 175mm x 128mm x 315mm, the DexArm is designed to fit on almost any desk. And its highly adjustable conveyor belt offers multiple features, such as adjustable speed and bidirectional rotation, each of which adaptable according to your needs.
The DexArm works with almost any computer. All you need is a USB-C port and a stable Wi-Fi connection. It comes with software that covers all functions of the arm, and also works with most operating systems, such as Mac, Windows PC, and Linux. However, it can also be controlled by a 3.5-inch touchscreen.
Depending on your needs, the DexArm comes in three packages. The Starter Kit offers a DexArm and a pen holder module. The Maker Kit offers all of those things, and also a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a laser module, and a 3D printing module. Perhaps the most luxurious, the New Luxury Kit offers DexArm extensions and modules, including a soft gripper, and an air picker.
DexArm also offers a wide variety of accessories. For additional safety there’s an optional enclosure made completely out of aluminum alloy. There’s also a computer vision kit with 1080p resolution, a built-in microphone, a sliding rail kit for maximizing the robot’s productivity on the wide areas, and a conveyor belt kit. And to top it all off, Rotrics also offers a one-year warranty on the DexArm, as well as each of its modules.
