    Have you tested and determined the load caring capacity?

    i think that arm is too long, if they work, they will work for just short amount of time...

    wiper motor is low power motor, so to compensate that, just use short arm/short stroke...

    in my project, i just use only 2 cm of arm lenght, its better for me because it can work for long time and the motor doesnt get hot in continous use...

    Hi
    I know you are right Ahoenksiluman. :)
    And what strength should each actuator at 6 dof have to work properly?
    I know power 750 W is OK
    And strength? :sos
    best regards
