Features and Benefits

Lightweight design Reduces moving inertia for faster cycle times
Compact, small footprint Efficient use of space; adaptable to mobile platforms
Long and slender links Reaches in and around obstacles with ease
Backdrivable Extends force control along entire surfaces of joints throughout links
Kinematic redundancy Unusually high dexterity in either 4 or 7 degree-of-freedom configurations
Human-like kinematics Arm links form grasps around large objects (~1 m)
270-degree average joint mobility Enhances dexterity and agility even beyond human capability
Zero-backlash and near-zero friction Extraordinarily graceful motion
Modular construction Interchangeable components
Brushless rare-earth High torque, low mass, lower rotor inertia, servo motors and vacuum compatibility
Open control architecture Excellent research tool: direct access to sinusoidally commutated current amplifiers for developing advanced control algorithms
