Carbon-6 MkI

The first of its specific configuration, Carbon-6 MkI is a 6-axis robotic arm designed with the Husky Robotics Arm Subsystem for their Mars rover prototype Orpheus. The arm weighs 12.7kg and can lift over 5kg, while reaching over 1.5 m.


The arm is made by Husky Robotics Team members at the University of Washington. It is primarily composed of carbon fiber, 6061 aluminum, and 3D printed PLA.


NIKOBOTICS's primary role in this project was the development of the wrist section, gripper (see Adaptive Gripper MkI), elbow and shoulder worm gearboxes.
