The UFACTORY xArm 5 is the most affordable industrial robotic arm in the UFACTORY xArm series. It is an entry-level robot that features five degrees of freedom and a payload of 3 kg. The device is created primarily for manufacturing industry and can perform a wide array of simple repetitive tasks, being a highly cost-effective solution. Due to its architecture that helps one to deploy the robotic arm smoothly, the xArm 5 desktop robot arm is ready to go almost right out of the box, no technician needed.

Unlike industrial robots, which are heavy and cumbersome to move, the xArm 5 is lightweight and convenient. It also has the lowest weight among the series models. The entire lineup is crafted from carbon fiber and aluminum, reducing at least 50% of weight. Intuitive and quick setup allows it to be applied to any process in a variety of conditions. While the xArm 6/xArm 7 robotic arms comes with connections that use a harmonic drive, the xArm 5 adopts a built-in harmonic reducer and a low backlash gearbox.The xArm industrial-grade devices are capable of performing multiple tasks, from holding a camera to accurately packing an object. Have a look at the examples below to get a better idea.

The xArm 5 is engineered with a powerful X86 chip to easily handle the controlling algorithm, granting accurate movements. Also, it adopts a compact powertrain joint, a self-developed outer rotor brushless motor, and an integrated harmonic drive for higher repeatability and torque capability.  All this makes the xArm joints durable and precise enough to work on long-term precise applications.

The xArm 5 features a programmable gripper for multiple applications. One can control its position, maximum speed, and force to effectively perform a variety of tasks. It also includes suction cups with a maximum vacuum degree of -90kpa. It can be used for pick-and-place operations, packing, sorting, and more. Using various add-ons, such as a force torque sensor and vacuum gripper, the device can be used for pick-and-place operations, packing, sorting, and more.


Pick and place

The multiple axes configuration makes the robot ideal for repetitive activities.

The device has a reach of up to 700 mm, being capable of performing a variety of tasks.


Robot controls

Despite their robust construction, the UFACTORY collaborative robots are extremely user-friendly. They offer intuitive and safe feature hand teaching as well as reduced system weight for flexible deployment, and collision detection for safety.

The built-in software works perfectly with xArm Studio, a web-based technology with graphical interface that features one-system solution decreasing engineering and manufacturing time significantly and providing access to raw data. With its block-based interface, it allows dragging and dropping commands to create complex paths in short times. For easy tasks, it also supports manual teaching. Just move the xArm 5 arm, and it will repeat your path. Additional features include example codes, live control, custom libraries, recording, I/O setting, offline mode, collision detection, and more.
