Acyut : The Humanoid Robot

Just another Humanoid robot

Stage two : Manufacturing

We started off by manufacturing brackets (which we designed). These brackets served as bases to mount the Futaba 13kgcm & 7kgcm servos we were going to use . The exoskeleton was manufactured out of aluminium which proved to be too thin. We intend to use duralumin (which is more expensive) in the future. The thickness ( or rather the thinness) of the aluminium plate (1mm) proved to be a major hurdle during the machining proces. The plate was too thin to be grasped by the CNC machine. This made it difficult for us to machine. Enter innovation …we used double sided tape and taped the plate onto another piece of aluminium(6mm) making the sheet thicker and easier to machine! 🙂 This made life a lot easier for us, also inspiring us to innovate.
