Water is all you will need to power this hydraulic arm! With this do-it-yourself kit, you will learn all about the science of hydraulic power. Once built, the robotic arm is powered by hydraulics and features multi-axis movements including vertical claw movement and a rotatable base. Using the four precision controls, you can use the arm to grab a variety of objects, such as a tin can.
Hydraulic power is power transmitted by the circulation of pressurized fluid, usually to a motor that converts it into a mechanical function. Hydraulic power has many uses, for example, it is used a lot in modern aircraft, cars, and industrial machinery. This kit will introduce you to hydraulic power, and you will get to enjoy its benefits while you use the precision controls to manoeuvre your robot arm to pick up various objects!
