Model No. FMS-1500


Feature:

Flexible Mechatronics System is an all-in-one mechatronics training system. It provides the total freedom for the users to build a mechatronics system from individual mechanisms and hands-on opportunity to wire the system.
There are 5 basic system configurations, which are shape detection, circular object orientation, rectangular object orientation, manufacturing, and weight detection. The beauty of this system is providing absolute freedom for the users to utilize indexing table, conveyor belt, linear robotic arm, rotary robotic arm, and mobile storage platform to design and create as many assembly lines as they can think about.
