The UARM Swift Pro is a desktop, consumer-grade robotic arm. It is an all-in-one crafting solution for 3d printing, laser engraving, writing, and much more. It is a valuable robotic assistant that fits almost any space. It is made of square aluminum alloys, which ensure lightness and stability. It is extremely easy to use. Based on Arduino technology, it can be programmed to perform any task you want. You will learn how to use it in just a few minutes. For example, it features an offline learning mode to simply teach it how to move by pressing the record button on the base and dragging the arm manually. It will then do its job with extreme precision according to your teachings.
It is an open-source and DIY friendly robotic platform tailored to makers and educators. Its open nature makes it easily extendable. It can be equipped with three different, replaceable end-effectors, namely the default suction cup, the metallic gripper, and the universal holder. You can swap from a tool to another in less than 30 seconds. Both the metallic gripper and the holder are available as optional add-ons. The Swift Pro also shows an integrated socket for special Seeed Grove modules, including the Vision Camera kit, which is able to detect faces, markers, and colors.
It can perform a wide variety of tasks according to your needs. Read on to find out more.
The UARM Swift Pro is a desktop 4-axis parallel-mechanism robotic arm platform aimed at educational and home use. It is equipped with a stepper motor with a 12-bit encoder for position repeatability of up to 0.2mm. It can work at a maximum speed of 100mm/s. It offers accurate performances and high-precision, being able to perform delicate tasks, such as laser engraving, delivering good quality results.
The stepper motor allows for quiet and smooth operation. The parallel-mechanism configuration makes it light, strong and accurate. Thus, it can withstand a payload of up to 500 g while being small and compact.
The gripper provides four degrees of freedom providing an interesting movement range. The precise capabilities, the advanced controlling algorithm and high-quality hardware support a higher level of usage. The high repeatability lets the arm picking and placing items with extreme precision.
The arm comes stock with the suction cup. It also supports a range of optional end-actuators. Depending on your project requirements, you can transform the uArm into a 3D printer, a laser engraver, a gripper, and more. You’ll only have to program it to perform the required task.
For instance, by installing the 3D printing kit, you can quickly turn it into a desktop 3D printer. The set includes all the parts required, including an E3D compatible Hotend, Bowden feeder and tube, and all the connection cable. It can print with PLA-type materials.
The laser head lets you engrave a variety of materials, such as wood, leather, and fabrics, with high accuracy.
The Swift Universal Holder lets you install a pen, a brush, or any other drawing instrument to comfortably create your own design. It lets you draw on paper, sand, and more.
The metallic gripper can lift products of up to 500 g. It can be used for light industrial applications or for domestic use. It can even use it to play chess.
The arm can work in a range of 50 mm - 320 mm. The working area lets it perform a variety of tasks.
UARM Swift Pro works as a plug-n-play device. It can be controlled via a USB-tethered computer or via a dedicated app for remote control. The arm can be programmed either online via the proprietary UARM Studio and UARM play and offline via the button-operated, manual learning mode.
The device is equipped with a Bluetooth module and a USB port for easy data transferring.
It comes with an all-in-one software to control and program the arm, UARM Studio. Its intuitive GUI is ideal for entry-level robotics learning. It provides blockly-based graphical programming. It runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. The company has also developed a dedicated app, UARM Play, available for iOS smartphones.
The robot also supports Arduino, Python, GRABCAD, and ROS programming.
The company also provides a set of add-ons available as an optional (purchased separately):
