4607 Presents: Torque

Some may have seen our reveal video on FIRST Updates Now, and it didn’t really show a ton of robot action. So here’s a video that shows nothing but robot action. The robot was built to perform every task in the game and it does! The only thing not shown in the video is our climber.

(The gearing on the arm is 725:1 :D)

What kind of gearbox are you using to support that really high gear ratio for the arm?

There are 2 Gem 500 gearboxes with a Cim motor in them. Each gearbox is at 181.4:1. They have a 12t #35 sprocket driving a 48t sprocket on the arm. Our drive coach stood on the arm and it lifted him up :smiley:
