The mechArm 270 M5Stack designed by the Chinese-based Elephant Robotics company is a compact and lightweight 6-axis robotic arm. Alongside the , the device belongs to the mechArm 270 series of 6-axis robotic arms, where 270 refers to the working range of the robot. Both modifications share the same mechanical construction and are equipped with the ESP32-based M5Stack Atom development board. The key difference between the two models is the mainboard they are based on, and, consequently, some variations in operation, capabilities, and application scenarios.

The mechArm 270 is extremely compact for a six-axis cobot and weighs only 1 kg. With the maximum load capacity of 250 grams, the working radius of 270 mm, and versatile operating capabilities, it is a perfect tool for makers, designers, and for those making their first steps in robotics and programming. It is Linux-compatible, has built-in ROS and Python support, and features Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet connectivity.

The Elephant Robotics mechArm 270 M5Stack is equipped with the ESP32-based M5Stack Basic module featuring a dual-core 240 MHz CPU, 520 KB SRAM, 16 MB of Flash memory, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The module sports a 2" color IPS-screen and three custom buttons. The end of the arm houses the ESP32-based M5Stack Atom development board with a 5 x 5 RGB LED matrix panel, additional GPIO pins, a Grove interface, a programmable button, a USB-C port, and a steering gear interface for the connection of some end effectors, such as an adaptive gripper. The arm end is equipped with a Lego-compatible connector that expands the cobot’s customization opportunities and allows for quick and easy installation of multiple end effectors, including grippers, suction pumps, sensors, cameras, and much more.

The Lego-compatible base of the mechArm 270 M5Stack allows you to attach an optional flat or G-shaped base for enhanced stability. The use of suction base greatly adds to the versatility of your cobot, allowing you to place it on any flat smooth surface, both horizontal and vertical.

The Elephant Robotics mechArm 270 M5Stack comes fully assembled and is ready to interact right out of the box.

 

Processing quality

Six high-performance servo motors of the mechArm 270 M5Stack provide quick response and smooth rotation of the six joints with the repeatability of ±0.5 mm. The maximum joint rotating speed is 120°/s.

 

Applications

The Elephant Robotics mechArm 270 M5Stack is a compact yet fully functional robotic arm providing versatile opportunities for secondary development of cross-platform software. It is a great educational tool to explore the world of robotics and AI as well as master basic programming skills.

The machine vision allows using the robot for different applications, for example sorting objects by color or recognizing QR codes.
