A project log for cost efficient robot actuator

creating a root actuator based for high cost efficient components for high torque applications 05/18/2021 at 21:080 Comments

After switching the gears from a 3D printed option to a metal one which already exists on the market. We could slim the actuator without adding any major cost (25$). Thats the step from black (OpenTorque) to the yellow one. 

The yellow and the black one have the same 8318 motor. For the next step I decided to reduce the motor as the weight is significantly reduced, so the energy consumption for the complete robot goes down etc. 

Switching then to the next step the blue/green one...
