The Annin Robotics AR4 robot is a 6DOF desktop size industrial robot that is a free, open plan low cost robot. Anyone can make this robots and it can be made using aluminum components or you can 3D print the parts yourself.
These robots are widely used in small automation processes and in hundreds of high schools, technical schools and colleges in a variety of educational programs and hobbyist communities.
The 3D print files, operating software and assembly manuals can all be found on our downloads page for free.
Aluminum parts and hardware kits are available
on our kits page.
The goal of the AR series of robots is to create the lowest cost option so that anyone could build a 6 axis robot arm for fun, educational purposes or small production operations.
The AR4 robot arm uses an Arduino based teensy 4.1 control board, free python control software and is compatible with RoboDK software.
My goal is to continue improving the software and functionality and provide the lowest cost solution for a 6 axis robot that can actually be used for real tasks.
