How do I get a $100 discount and free shipping on a Dobot Magician?

Great question! Luckily the answer is, as always, “It’s easy!”

I just purchased eight of them for my CIM class after testing them for the better part of the last six months. I feel that they are so much more accurate and durable than anything else I have used in my classroom to date. Any questions please contact me. Also see the videos I have made about the accuracy here, and about how I used it here.

Just go to www.dobot.us to purchase your robot from In-Position Technologies; a real robotics company that designs, sells, and services manufacturing systems for industry. They are the only US based provider for  service and support for the Dobot line of robots. If your district is paying on line, be sure they type in the code: chrisandjimcim to get a $100.00 discount and free shipping.

If your district is using a purchase order, be sure to use this address and phone number to get the same discount. Just put the code chrisandjimcim on the purchase order. The address to use is:

How Accurate is the Dobot Magician?

Question:

Just how accurate is the Dobot Magician?

Answer:

Short answer: very accurate. To 0.007″ to be exact. Verified by an independent study student of mine using statistical analysis.
3bots In May of 2017  I purchased a Dobot Magician from an Etsy shop, as that was the only way to get them at the time. It is now available at In-Position Technologies here for $1499.00.  Use the code “chrisandjimcim”  or mention us on your PO and you will get free shipping as well as US based help and warranty service!
First thing I did, and when I say I, I mean an Independent Study student (props to Vincent Paglia , who will be going to RPI in August, see his info below!) was do an Accuracy test. They claim it is accurate to 0.2 mm, and our test on our robot proved that it was actually more accurate than that.  Try that with the robot you use for CIM class now! The only one more accurate in my classroom is my Fanuc, and it cost almost 15 times what the Dobot cost!

  For those of you into POE and “data” you can you download the spreadsheet with data points, graphs, ect here: 2017 Dobot Repeatability Data.  But this histogram says it all:
Dobot Accuracy Graph When all was said and done, our robot was accurate to about 0.18mm overall. That is 0.007″ for those of you in England… I must say, very impressed with the accuracy.

_MG_5137-4Special thanks to one of my best ever Independent study students for all of the work he did this year with me  with the Dobot.
