Jointed Arm Robots

A Jointed Arm robot has three rotational axes connecting three rigid links and a base. An Jointed Arm robot is frequently called an anthropomorphic arm because it closely resembles a human arm. The first joint above the base is referred to as the shoulder. The shoulder joint is connected to the upper arm, which is connected at the elbow joint.

Jointed Arm robots are suitable for a wide variety of industrial tasks, ranging from welding to assembly.
