Our team uses telescoping arm to hold cones and cubes.And Speaking of its program,I have some question. Is rotation = revolution,and are there any resources ,documents… that I can refer to ours telescope mechanism.
What type of arm are u using? Does it use a winch to pull itself in and springs to push out?
Constant-force extension spring in our telescoping arm.
In this context, rotation and revolution could be used interchangeably. Key difference is rotation is an object spinning, while revolution is an object spinning around another object in an orbit.
As for some resources, there are tons of Chief Delphi threads regarding them, such as
Great to see you here, I know we’ve used plenty of your springs in the past, including some on last year’s robot
I think the question in this thread really comes down to how CF springs perform with dynamic loading, when compared to a motor-powered solution. With this game and the solution concept being explored in this thread, the spring would be used to power one direction of linear motion on a rotating arm, meaning the force on the mechanism the spring is pulling on due to grav…
At champs we observed allot of the elevator systems used constant force springs to counterbalance the lifts. We picked up a few varying sizes to have on hand for future options. These things look terrifying. what precautions do you use installing these? What extra steps do you have to take for traveling, robot inspections, or when working on the robot? Maybe even the answers to the questions i haven’t asked but you have.
Pretty much the first two on the list when I searched it up.
And as for telescoping arms in general, same thing. This is the first on the list when searched

TL;DR: new telescoping arm robot. download CAD here.
Hi, all, and happy holidays. I bring you tidings of a new telescoping arm robot.
Some of you may remember that back in the summer of 2019, I threw together my very first telescoping arm design and posted it here. In the meantime, I’ve played around with new designs, and I figured that it was time to design a complete robot to show off what’s new. I’ve also used this as a chance to get familiar with the new REV c…
