Resistor Cutting Robot (RECO)

oomlout writes

We go through a lot of ribbons of resistors at oomlout. While we have gotten quite speedy slicing them with scissors we knew there had to be a better way. As a result, we decided to design a machine to help us out.

The current prototype takes an Arduino, a stepper motor, two RC servos, two exacto blades and a bundle of laser sliced 3mm MDF. It produces resistors strips of any length.

  1. That is awsome, mabey adafruit should get one and use it, speed up kit assembly, do they have plans/dimensions and code?

    lso either the link that says "oomlout writes" is bad or it is blocked at my college (whom claim they don’t filter internet) I’ll check it when i get it home, but if anyone has the same error then the link needs fixed

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
