JACO Research Edition moves smoothly and silently around 6 degrees of freedom with unlimited rotation on each axis. The axes are aluminum compact actuator discs of a unique design. Each JACO robot arm consists of 2 distinct sets of 3 identical, interchangeable and easy-to-replace CADs linked together by a ZIF (zero insertion force) cable. Its main structure, entirely made of carbon fiber, delivers optimal robustness and durability as well as a cutting-edge look-and-feel. The arm is mounted on a standard aluminum extruded support structure that can be affixed to almost any surface.
