I was interested in making a robot which should lift upto 100 grams and place it in the exact place where i needed.I mean it should place in a machine.
so can anybody tell mw what are the requirements for making this bot.how much should i expect money.

also does this bots will work fast ?I had seen in youtube videos but not sure the one which i am making.

thanks in advance

Hi Suresh,
Such robots are common in automobile industry.The cost of such robots depends on the accuracy of the system. But commericial units should be definately above 10 lakh!!!

These robots are expensive :) .... You can build one though but high level of expertise is required.

Give more specs of objective to be completed and maybe something can be suggested.

I Dont Think making such a robot can be that expensive.Tell us more about your objective and i will tell you how its cheap :)

you guys are so fast in reply ok here i am giving some hints.
Their are some components that are being manufactured by us that needed some small work like in a press machine.The weight of the component is only around 5grams.
Their are two parts for a component and this bot should place it in right shape like in this image.http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/5335/img0420am.jpg (http://img194.imageshack.us/i/img0420am.jpg/)

does this bots look heads or tails ?
I may throw like 5000 pieces and the bots should place them like in the image.I have seen nex robotics dexter arm gripper and it carries from one side to the other side and i dont know whether that bot looks top or bottom of the component to lift or place?

I am willing to make a small robot and want to test how it works.
so let me know what are inside of this robot ?
motors circuit board ?
does the circuit board is costed ?the rest parts i can make them.

Please post LARGE pics -

1. both items separated
2. both items combined
3. How will items be lying at start

The nex-robotics dexter arm ( Dagu arm ) is just for small demos only it does not suit your purpose. In india itll be way cheaper to hire labour to do the same unless VERY Large quantities are involved automation does not make sense.

Labour will be definately cheaper as well as faster.

yes it is done by labourer or even me and the quantity is always large only.I have asked since we get similar products to supply anyway ill post the images.

akshay i agree that labourer is best but I have got this idea whether this is possible or not.ill leave it off here since it may be risky and even waste of money

You need to snap fit the two parts, if I'm not wrong. It'll be cheaper and faster doing manually. And look at the bright side, you are providing employment if you go manual.

Will agree with Mohit ... get some cheap labor to do it ...

01-20-2011, 11:06 PM
I have planned because of competitve rates in market for products.I leave it off and can you post the bots which you made.let me to see your arm bots
