brakes for robotic arms
« on: December 26, 2017, 03:34:18 AM »
I am building a 6 DOF robotic arm and i need to find brakes that will stop the arm from falling in case the power is turned off. What kind of brakes are suitable and in design where i have to fix brakes ? Or is there any ideas to hold the arms when the power is turned off ?

I'd do a ratcheting system as shown on the left half of this image: https://quod.lib.umich.edu/h/humfig/images/11217607.0001.108-00000001.jpg
